Robot Appliquéd Quilt Blocks ~ Prepping...

If you've been reading along on Facebook or Instagram, you'll have seen some of the robot blocks I'm working on. My youngest son has designed all nine robots, each one with a different job or occupation. The blocks are going to be incorporated into a single bed size quilt.

Thumb Printing ~ a Simple Painting Activity...

The kids and I experimented with Thumb Print Art on the weekend. Even though paint is involved, it's a fun, kids' crafting activity, that requires minimal set up and the clean up takes next to no time.

Back home today after a wonderful week's holiday in beautiful Nelson Bay, on the southern shores of Port Stephens. Only three hours north of Sydney, Port Stephens is an area we love and have visited many times.
