- Aunty Mum
- The past two years have been all about adjusting to motherhood and finding my way through it via craft. The out pouring of this came in the form of my blog Aunty Mum. Now I'm finally finding my feet, the children are growing, I'm getting some independence and my interests are morphing . . . into cooking. Join me in exploring creativity in many forms, food, fabric, frowns and laughter.

I put the rotary cutter to use this morning and churned out a bunch of squares. The only issue is that I felt like I had an enormous pile of squares to be sewn together and when I got to the sewing machine and started putting them together the pile disappeared very quickly.
Still, only three more rows to go and I'll be ready to do the border and then put it all together. I'm really starting to love this quilt and can't wait until it's hanging off the back of the sofa. As I watched the All Blacks narrowly win the Rugby World Cup last night I thought "hmmm, a little chilly. What a shame I don't have the quilt finished" so I think it's going to be handy as well as colourful.
Now the children are making my headache worse by playing up because it's time to head off to Nanny and Granddad's house so I can throw them in the deep end of the pool. (It's pool cleaning day and there's only about 40cm of water in the pool so they're not likely to drown. I am thinking I might secretly stash an overnight bag into the car for Janae and see if I can con the folks into keeping her there for the night so I can have a quiet morning tomorrow once the older kids are safely at school. We'll see how that goes!
