Goings on

There is always a lot going on in life...always.

But I am loving my job and my little baby is growing and growing.

All that aside I need to admit that I have been down right nasty and completely irresponsible. I had a responsibility to finish a hoop almost a month ago and didn't. Partner I am so sorry. I have no excuse I just hope one day you can forgive me. On th lighter side of that confession if there is one here is the hoop.

I also decided to join my first QAL. Oh My Stars. I am super excited this quilt along especially since I am doing it with Amy

I have the orange and purple color ways of 1001 Peeps :DI also got a few other things for upcoming projects.

Hideaway for my tree quilt and Munki Munki Foxes just plain cute!

For the Love of...Home

How fortunate for me that my sweet friend Sharon has started up her Fav 5 again with a twist.

"For the Love of..." will have a new theme every week and you'll have to Sunday to get your blog post up and linked.

Oh if you are looking for the giveaway you need to go here

This weeks "For the Love of..." theme is?

home [hohm]  Show IPA
at ease, at rest, central, down home, familiar,familyhomely, homey, household, in one'selement, in the bosom, inland, internallocal,national, native

(This definition came from

Some of you may know that recently I moved. Not just down the street, around the corner or even across the country but across the ocean. The biggest ocean.

From Brisbane, Australia to Langley, Canada. A total of 11908.232 kms.

Seems like a lot when I lay it all out like that, but I had a good reason...

This beautiful little girl.

This man who I love dearly despite everything I put him through.

 And you know what?

I think I'm going to like it here...a lot. 

When you live in a country that doesn't really have defined seasons you don't get to see beautiful colours like this.

Because this isn’t the first time that I’ve moved internationally {hoping it’s my last} I’ve learned that Home isn’t necessarily a place but the people I am with.

Don’t get me wrong in a few weeks Ill start complaining about the lack of sun and by the time it snows I’ll probably be so cold that I’ll have to wrap in 10 different layers before I can get out of bed.

SO for now I think I will just enjoy what I have ;) don’t you agree???
