Term 1.

Dear Journal
Well I've been trying too get to you for a couple of weeks so finally I'm sitting with my first Coffee at 8am on a Sunday Morning trying to think of what's happened in that time well really where too start.
Well I'm going into our 3rd week of School..Ella has taken too Kindy like a Duck too Water in fact She wanted to go Today didn't want to stay home with Mummy or Us for that Matter But I'm sure that won't last long..lol... Last Thursday I started with School Banker as a Volunteer, the lady in charge said I'll get you a Co-Ordinators Badge...eeek!!! ammm NO I am Not a Co-Ordinator Dear I'll just help out when I can which was going on in my Head...I did tell her that I won't be helping out every Thursday as I need too have some Me Time with my Sewing and catch up with Friends...well I did get a Look!! Obviously she is not a Patchworker or Crafty Lady as it was a Look of  OH! so People do that ....lucky I was home within 2 hrs so it wasn't all that bad but the lady in charge is very organized so I think we'll get on just fine....
So here is Ella all rearing too go on Day One.
This is their Sports Uniform the Dresses won't be ready till next Summer...Thank Goodness when I saw these at the Open Day my heart sank...so Drab and Dark where's the Colour!!! as far as a Colour for Dirt it works...my own children had Grey & Maroon for their uniforms Never been my Favourite.
Our Teacher's name is Mrs Woodcock a Very Quiet Lady which is what you need for 25 Excited 5yr Olds....we have already had A Star of the Day Certificate so we're on a Good Start.
So 3 days a week I do Drop off...and Pick UP and I must admit I'm Enjoying my time at home being an Ex stay at home mum it's always been my thing...work is now on the weekends probably till we go away in July then we'll see....
I got my book of Raffle Tickets for this Gorgeous Quilt which will be on display and raffled at
The Quilters Barn in Victoria March 27th & 28th so if your able to get too the Exhibition do Go if we weren't going away I'd be down there in a flash...the Exhibition will be all of Margaret Sampson George's Quilts and Quilts by her Students past and present should be a Beauty...I do hope they have another I'll be there.
 

 
The Borders are not on as yet it will be lovely too see this finished for the day...
I have managed to Finish Month 4 of my Stonefields Quilt...



And make a start on Month 5


 
I've also been working on my Elements Fly away with Me centre just doing my own thing with this one now and won't be a big quilt more like for the wall...well it will be a work of art in the end.


I'm getting organized for my first Workshop on the 22nd with Natalie Bird I am a little Nervous but Confident I've also found New Rooms for our upcoming workshops in the year and a Fabulous Double Hall with the council for Gail Pan next February....
I've downloaded a App called "my fitness pal" it's for weight loss and it's brilliant it's like the old days of Weight Watchers weighing foods and keeping track and that's the Key!! keeping track it's been 17days and I've lost well according too my daugter's shonky scales about 3.2 kilos...the goal is too drop another pants size....
I'm taking names still for Judy Newman for the 13th & 14th June and if you are Interested in Gail Pan next Feb I am taking names and a Deposit of $20.00 to hold your seat I think this one will be Big...
