I've been quilting!

This is some secret squirrel business that came to me out of the blue. A group of on-line friends whom I have known for a while now, almost 3 years as we came together from a pregnancy forum. Was that even a sentence? Who cares. I can't even read this properly.

Anyway, one of them had it tough with her second child who was ill since he entered into this world and I thought we could make a quilt for that special little boy. I don't think she reads my blog so it's safe to say this is not going to spoil the surprise. We chose the fabric and someone cut out the circles and I finished the quilt top. It was easier than I expected and more quickly than you'd think. Isn't it cute? Next I have to do the backing and binding.


For the backing we already have this stars and stripes from Spotlight and I am going to create a design for our special message on the back. That will be the next post which will host a giveaway of the software I used. So as usual, stay tuned.

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…

The Fairy Party

Over the weekend we celebrated Little Miss finally turning 6 and Father's Day. I had been planning this party for one whole month as it was the first party we've had at home. I was so happy but a bit nervous when the day arrived and kept thinking I was forgetting something on the day (it was the corn cobs!). But everything went to plan and I was so happy for her and all who attended. 

Here I am with a cheesy smile as we were cutting her cake. It was a home-made one made by her aunt and we had frosted it and decorated it on the day (a bit stressful but fun). Come 1pm, when the party was starting, I was worried that no-one would turn up. I mean, I could hear the birds and apart from my sister's family being there, she only had 1 friend from school turn up. I asked her during the two weeks prior "Are you sure you don't want to invite anyone else?" I had only got two rsvp's and was rather disappointed. Is this how mother's are suppose to feel? I felt sad …
