gnomeangel 2 more done and these are huge! Best use of nap time - he sleeps and I sew and listen to The Nerdist podcasts. Everyone's winning. (Except the household chores!) 6h

gnomeangel My 7 blocks are done and I've just realized I forgot to do the 1 with the variation to it... Oh well... #smittenquilt 1d
  •   quiltsbyjessie I love it! Great job 20h
  •   mascanlon These look so great! 19h
  •   richyjr16 So fun 11h
  •   flossieteacakes Thank you for mentioning my tutorial, Angie :) This is looking gorgeous! x 3h
  •   flossieteacakes I'm not sure if I've already asked you this before - are you hand or machine piecing these? They look perfect. 3h
  •   gnomeangel @flossieteacakes thank you for sharing your tutorial - I always think about it when I'm working! I'm machine piecing them using @sewlux tutorial series. I'm ironing the seams open and I'm not glue basting so they're sitting really flat because of the open seams. 3h
  •   flossieteacakes That sounds like an interesting technique - I'll have to look into it! Thank you! On other matters, I think I need to invest in some different fabrics for more humorous piecing - seeing these keeps making me smile :) 3h
  •   gnomeangel @flossieteacakes it's lots of y-seams which used to scare me but now I'm loving them. I'm a big fan of novelty prints for fussy cutting. It's about finding a balance with them - something I'm still learning! 2h

gnomeangel Have started reading "Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family: How to Eat, How to Raise Good Eaters, How to Cook". Should be an interesting journey.... 1d
  •   kraftykuka I'm sure the book is fantastic, but what's with the uterostrawberry cover? 1d
  •   gnomeangel @kraftykuka yeah, that's a bit fresh (pardon the pun) - think they might be trying to tap into the "motherhood" of it all... I try not to dwell on it. 1d
  •   gnomeangel @kateburge_ awful water? That's a new one 1d
  •   gnomeangel @juliepea will do! 1d
  •   appliqueensal My son only ate 100's & 1000's on white bread for years. 3rd child. 1st child had steamed organic nutrition hand prepared blah blah! 1st child now feeds her kids junk. 3rd child is now Mr Fit Mr nutrition and puts my food choices to shame. I think a mums gotta do what a mums gotta do. It's a fight in the kitchen always! Hope it's a fab book @gnomeangel 1d
  •   kateburge_ Ha! EATER. Obviously. Although when washing his hands yesterday he did request "I want English water!" Whaaaa? 1d
  •   lilyboot @appliqueensal totally sympathise!!! When I think of the effort I went to ... ;-) 1d

gnomeangel Another #miraclemorning down and I'd like to say they're getting easier, but my bed was toasty and warm when I left it and that wasn't easy... But it's done and I feel so much better than had I slept in and woken late and then rushed through my before work morning. I hope you have a FABULOUS day today! 5d
  •   livelovesew 5d
  •   cherie_bobbins Feeling much this way myself @gnomeangel! Despite launching out of bed at 5:00am to hungry babies I've managed to set up my day at be on the machine by 7! 5d
  •   sharingthegoodstuff Great quote!! The best thing I have done is move my alarm away from my bed! I used to hit snooze two or three times and then be rushing! There has been a lot less stress and telling the last couple of mornings and we have all been out if the house on time!! Thanks again!! 5d
  •   kayprovins It's all worth it ladies, you 'work to live' not the other way round. It is so worth it all. You are making life long memories which you will look back on one day and say I did my best and it was fab. 4d
  •   sunflowergirlsquilt Love-I screen shot your inspirations and pass it on to my kids! Thanks 4d

gnomeangel I'm feeling like poop on a stick and after a day of laying on the couch feeling sorry for myself and self medicating I decided to steal some minutes to finish 2 #smittenquilt blocks. Can you guess the theme I'm going with for this quilt. I'm totally crushing on it! 6d
  •   kateburge_ First, I have no idea of the theme. Could is be #awesome things? Second, crap weather, might as well use the couch. Tomorrow is a better day. Hopefully you'll feel better than poop on a stick because that sounds preeeeetty crap. 6d
  •   tiedwitharibbon Haven't started mine yet because I can't decide whether to EPP it or having seen how quickly your blocks are coming together I could get through it at 10 times the pace @gnomeangel - hope you feel better soon 6d
  •   charmaboutyou Oh those pineapples!! 6d
  •   kateburge_ WAIT! Is pink and black and white a theme? Do I win a prize?? 6d
  •   ml_wilkie Totally know how you feel...the same as you today 6d
  •   urbanstylejantine @tiedwitharibbon I feel the same! It is probably about if you need a hang on the couch project or a machine project. .... 6d
  •   swasjen Excellent 6d
  •   shezenjoyinglife Gorgeous xx 5d

gnomeangel If you live in Canberra I highly (highly) recommend the Griffith Butcher's homemade family pies (this on is chicken and vegetable). The pastry is awesome, the contents so yummy and they're a lazy dinner of cold, wet, winter nights. #getinmybelly #foodporn #notsponsoredjistdoingmycivicduty 1w

gnomeangel I can't even begin to tell you how surreal today has been.. But let's just say it's been amazing and it'll probably be a big turning point in my memoirs. Happy to be going to bed with sweet quilting dreams after completing my first #smittenqal block. @lucykingwell I'm loving this - thanks for the fun! Thanks @sewlux for the fabulous tutorials on how to machine piece! 1w

gnomeangel I'm spoiling myself this morning with some selfish sewing. Going to tackle y-seams with the help of @sewlux's #smittenqal tutorials. About time I started my version of Smitten by @lucykingwell. Can't wait! Have been dreaming and searching for fabrics for this since our trip to Melbourne last month. 1w
