Life is full of Changes and I am no exception, I have been thinking a lot over the last year or so about changing the name of my blog because when I first stumbled upon blogging I just typed in anything for a name and it of course has stuck.
I am in the process of making a new blog and it should be ready in the next few days, keep an eye out because I will be having a giveaway to celebrate the new name. I do hope you all will follow me there...
I am of course only a novice at all of this blogging stuff and it does take me a little bit of time to get things done to the way I like it.
I will make pages for recipes, Sewing, handy hints etc...simply because that is how my blogging life has been lately.

So keep a watchful eye out for my big launch...

Happy Stitching

Busy Busy Busy...

What a busy time I have had…Plenty to read about here.
I have had fun cooking different things lately as you could gather from my last post.

Mine got a bit burnt, but tasted fantastic anyhow.
 I decided I wanted to try the amazing Man Pleasing Chicken recipe from over at “Witty in the City”. Now this is an unfortunate name, I am afraid if you Google it I cannot be held responsible for whatever images may show up, follow my link instead.
Grated potato, egg,flour, salt & Pepper

To go with the chicken dish I wanted to make an old fashioned recipe my Mum used to make in the 70’s when we lived in Darwin, she called them “Mock Fish” I am not sure why though because there is no fish anywhere near this recipe (I am allergic). It basically would be called home made hash browns today…They were a big hit with the kids.
Very Yummy...

I have also tried a nice Banana Crème pie recipe from “Joyful Baker” and as you can see from the picture it did not last long…very yummy indeed.

In March I went to the Craft fair here in Brisbane with my Friend Khristina from Sew Prim Khris and her friend Julie (lovely Lady). we had a fantastic day looking at all the craft on offer and I admit I spent a little bit of money (ahem or more). After the day was done and we were sitting in the restaurant having a lovely and well deserved coffee we recognized someone walking past and He blew us kisses and posed for us…Do you know who this is???

He is much taller in real life I must say…

Finally I have had a chance to play with fabric, but alas not my sewing machine…I have been meaning to recover My sewing chair for ages and finally did it.

Love the fabric. 

Sorry I have no before pictures, but it was an ugly grey/black colour.
I am pleased with it for sure.

How about you? Are doing much sewing or are you like me and being a bit slack in that area..

I must find my Mojo again and get stitching.
Till the next time my dear friends.
Many Happy Stitches to you…
