House page

This is from Kylie who is hosting this fun swap. I am waiting on only one more page and then my book is done.

The other two pages are for Evelyn and Philippa, Dragon's Den and Bird House.

March madness

My goodness just where has this month gone?!?

I am sitting in the dark (Earth Hour) pondering how busy March has been. It seems like yesterday was Christmas.

Being busy has a lot to do with it. I spent a week at the Stitches and Craft Show, re-visited Moomba, sat through 12 hours of Sound Relief (in the pouring rain), survived another tremor (I was in the same place as the first - on the couch!), ate my way though Alana' s 21st and Jessica's 18th, dined in Black Rock, Ricketts Point, Tyabb, South Melbourne, Mentone and Beaumaris, spent time in hospital with Mum (she's home again now). Completed another Scraptacular class (Tim Holtz tags) and did a fabulous *free* Make and Take at Littlebits this morning. And now Emma wants me to go to the footy with her tomorrow! She is at a loose end because Liam is going to the Grand Prix (with the tix I won). Sunday is my day of rest!

I have done two more house pages but because of the end of month problems with download limits I haven't been able to blog/upload. Today I spent catching up on emails and then find my camera batteries flat and I can't see in the dark to re-charge them. Earth Hour is nearly up, we can put the candles away.....

Earth Tremor

This evening I discovered something scarier than waiting for the electricity to come back on after a power surge in the middle of the night - an Earth Quake!!!!

Whilst there are many countries that experience this on a regular basis, I have never felt such a wave!

Just before 9 p.m. a quake measuring 4.7 on the Richter scale was felt throughout the whole of Melbourne. It was so eerie, the entire house just shook but there was no sound!

So far there are no reports of damage, Dale walked through the house but all of our cracks are old ones LOL. I wonder about the pool.... and after shocks - yikes!

Puzzle Pieces

I have been crafting but not blogging lately because when our download limits are up and everything slows to a crawl there is just no point trying!

A new month means I can start posting again.

These puzzle pieces are for the Crafty Mums. We are doing the alphabet, Airplane for Helen, Beach for Jayne, Clock (mine), Dragonflies for Michelle, Egypt for Suzanne and Fence for Gail.

House Page

My latest page received came all the way from Western Australia, from Evelyn, this one is titled linda loves lace! I love it.
