I have to thank Steve and Bex for helping me with the bed for Keera.
Steve for doing most of the construction, then both of them for helping with the painting too.
I had planned to leave it totally white, but over the weekend I came up with a little idea...
ABOVE: I decided to add just a LITTLE bit of colour on the top edge of the bed ... so I picked out 6 colours from the quilt, and boom... painted and finished.
The quilt isn't finished, but I put it on the bed for the photo. I will be making a couple of matching pillowcases sometime this week too.
This morning, after I've taken the kids to kindy and school, I will be home doing housework for the morning.
There is always heaps to do after the weekend. At least the washing is up to date if nothing else.
It's supposed to rain today, rather happy it held off till now. Everyone got to enjoy lovely weather over the long weekend.
Right, that's me for now... crazy time starts.... getting everyone fed and dressed, lunch made and ready to go out the door by 8.15!
12.34: Well I got half the housework done and then I got visitors.
Kelly and one of her best friends, Amanda C.
They came out so Amanda C. could see our new home, and Kelly had a birthday present for me.
So we had a lovely visit.
ABOVE: I got the gorgeous card from Amanda C, and the Scent thingee from Kelly. It smells amazing.
ABOVE: I got to blow out a candle... and then it re-lit itself so I had to blow that bugger out again. *smiles*
Now, it's on with more housework ... then a late lunch.
8.55 pm: And it's been an awesome day. I'm loving the lovely smell coming from the smelly thing Kelly gave me!
The kids and Stew all noticed it straight away.
Dinner tonight was yummy lamb chops baked in mint sauce, a family favourite.
