Weekend over - back to work

:-( That's my sad face. I love being off work. If only I could work out a way to stay home and get paid to scrapbook and knit and quilt. te he. If only it was that easy. Oh I know, I still haven't checked our lotto ticket for Saturday night, I wonder if we had one of the 1.3 million dollar prizes. We can only dream right?

I have done a few more pages for my sister-in-law's birthday book, just more pics of the kids. Shall share one I did with hubby with his nephew. I did some cool swirly thing with the background. Don't ask me how I did it, I couldn't repeat it if I tried! ha But it worked, it was such a busy background and I like the effect. Such a funny fellow my nephew is. I was almost going to write a disclaimer as to how this photo came about. He was egging his Uncle Michael on and on and on and the last comment I heard before he was picked up and I snapped this photo coming toward me was ... "Uncle Michael, can you flush my head down the toilet" hahahahaha. Thought perhaps my sister-in-law really doesn't need to know that, right?

PS : I do not like my husband with a beard. Ick.


Credits here.

There will be some sewing to show very shortly. New year, and I thought I better get cracking on my step-daughter's quilt. She'll be getting a quilt for her 18th birthday in May. I'm measuring twice and cutting once. So far no mistakes. Or not that I've noticed yet, I haven't started sewing.

And on the knitting front my friend from up the road who I go to water aerobics with, turned 50 today and I gave her a pair of my socks. I made a little wrap around label which said "A hug for your feet" !! She loved them.

Okay, off to check the lotto ticket.

Great photo and fabulous effect! Quite like the beard (you don't have to pass that on!). Seems weird having met you IRL and now back to communicating through cyberspace again!!

Oh wouldn't the 1.3 million be wonderful !!! Hope your return to work is not too bad.

Well I didn't get a phone call from the Lotto people so I'm not holding my breath even though I bought my ticket twice - because I couldn't remember if I already had and didn't want to miss my chance at being a millionaire!! Love that page, he looks so cheeky!

Great photo; I love the 'cool swirly thing'. I think Mike's beard looks great but I don't have to live with him. My WM has had a beard since 1976; I can't imagine him without it!

Knitting completed and given but where are the photos? Tee-hee.

Oh isn't it great to make a label for socks? A hug for your feet - i love it!
