Quilty, Quilty, Quilt. Now the word sounds weird.

So I'm in the midst of a chevron quilt for my youngest right now. I totally suck at quilting but for some reason I still really enjoy it! I guess it's that thrill of turning little squares into awesome patterns with nothing but thread...or something like that anyway.

I've used a mix of "sherbet pips" and "the simple life" by Riley Blake. Also a few bits of what I had on hand as I didn't quite have enough of certain colours to get my pattern right :) my daughters room has a blue, pink and red palette and it took me awhile to find a line with just the right colours. I'm even going to be brave and try hand quilting this one!!! Not a fan of wrestling it through the machine!

My husband is still in the process of fixing our computer so excuse the iPhone photos! I'll post more when I finish too!

P.S. I haven't figured out how to put my photos IN the text yet...sorry :/

Yesterday I picked up my mum and we went for a drive to some swings. Half way there there were monarch butterflies flying EVERYWHERE! I mean there were 100's flying around. My mum is a kindy teacher and had looked into monarch butterflies to have them hatch in her classroom. So she knew they liked milkweed and the roadside was covered in milkweed. So we pulled over and got the girls out to have a look. It was awesome! Fat little yellow, white and black striped caterpillars all over the place. So after poking them and looking at some dead butterflies on the ground we decided to take some caterpillars home. We dug up some milkweed plants and popped them in a bag. Now we have some hungry, hungry caterpillars in a fish tank. Fingers crossed they turn into butterflies =D

Huh. So I just started a blog. Well I have no idea where I'm going to go with this but let's give it a go shall we. I'm a stay at home mummy of two little girls. I try to make, bake, cook and create as much as I possibly can so we'll see how this all goes!
