Inspired to Sew

I think I have found my sewing mojo. Chris and I are off to Melbourne this weekend to visit my sister and I was planning the craft shops I need to visit and all of a sudden I was inspired to sew again. I finished a giraffe and some platypii and planned the rest of the pig quilt.
I haven't really thought about the weekend before now, I feel a bit paranoid about leaving the girls even though I know Mum and Dad will look after them and they won't care that I will call 10 times a day to check on them.
I am starting to get excited about going now, I'm thinking of time to read on the plane, eating out, getting to craft shops I only read about on blogs and getting to touch the stuff I only ever see pictures of and time to just wander around without a double pram and two children screaming for chocolate milk (which they rarely ever have, but lately have been asking me for at least 10 times a day).

A weekend away sounds so lovely, just the thought of a plane trip without having to entertain little ones, and to wander unencumbered through Melbourne - bliss! I'm sure your girls will have a wonderful time with their grandparents too - I'm looking forward to Thomas getting big enough to do that occasionally. The quilt is looking beautiful - it is great to make up your own pattern, your finished quilt will be so unique. I'm also in love with the blanket stitch on my machine - it looks like it's hand done, only so much neater and quicker!

Oooh.. so lucky to have met you on Friday! Thanks for visiting us and hoping your stitching goes in a straight line (unlike mine!) Hope you had a wonderful time in Melbourne - I'm an ex-WA girl too - so I can completely relate to the lack of bright lights and nice shops in WA... although -there does seem to be a few! (Nice shops that is!)

Thank you for the hector giraffe pattern in the softies book. My 4yo picked him out (and the materials) just after he had his first asthma attack. He renamed him 'unsa munsa' and has been a constant companion ever since. keep creating and enjoy your trip.

I am smitten by your platypus. They are adorable! I like your use of the Amy Butler fabric in the orange one.
