After watching the Mr play, I realised I couldn't watch every week and not want to play myself. So.

I played my first game of hockey ever yesterday. Funny really since I went to a high school that specialised in hockey.

I don't think I did too bad. Though I definitely need to work on my fitness, all that running!!


 Watching the men's game. Do you like the way my nail polish matches my stick?

No photos of the game yesterday, these are all from the men's Anzac Day game during the week. We did stop on the way home to photograph burning off in the paddocks though.

End of Summer


We got in one more afternoon at the pool before it closed for the season today.


And a dragonfly rescue by my niece,

and a spot of mini golf,


I enjoy having my Mum and nieces visit in the holidays for myself, but I love it even more because it makes Charlie so, so happy. He really lights up when they are here.

I am looking forward to the cooler weather, but the forecast is still in the 30's for the next few days. I hope you're enjoying the weather wherever you are.

Another Baby Quilt


Another simple squares quilt, this time for a girl!


All fabrics bought from Calico and Ivy, picked out by the expectant mother.


I'd really like to do some garment sewing, but I can't seem to stop making quilts, I love them! Which works out well really since I'm going to have to start stock piling baby quilts as more and more of our friends are heading towards this stage of life.


And again, my little helper that just has to get amongst it when a quilt gets laid out for photographing.
