what a beautiful day

The sun is shining the birds are chirping and I have just received a photo of my wee munchkins. Unfortunately none of the other school photos were any good as there was too much squinting going on amongst the kids. We are in week 5 of the term and things are flying by. Not a lot of time for crafting these days, but I am sure I will find some time somewhere. :) Anyway I will come back and finish the post later as I have a report screaming my name that needs to be written before the board meeting this arvo. Here are the babes.

Here is what I have been up to

I have entered into the delightfull world of spinning so thought that I should share a picture of my new toy.

To add to this I have taken a wee picture of the latest spinning attempt. It is getting finer every time I have a go and I am no longer spinning tow ropes like I used to......

Since joining tnn I have discovered the wonderful world of swaps. In the recent swap I did I made up some tea coasters which I thought were rather retro chick. I liked them so much that I made 2 extra, one for my sewing cabinet and one for my coffee table. I love the quirky dots that are showing. I am deep in thought at the moment trying to think of a piece of artwork that I have to come up with in relation to a professional learning group I am in as part of my principalship. My recipient is a real artist and loves the flower 'bird of paradise' so I am rather nervous about my art skills - i can draw a mean stick man, but alas do not possess any talent in the area of painting :)
