So blown away, humbled and PACKING MY PANTS! Totally batting above my average! Stoked to be in the finals with fellow Aussie @2littleausbirds and have @msmidge in the runners up (plotting how I can get a couple of the top 16 to not take their offer!!!). Bring on the first challenge!!!! (Now back to sleep!) 1d

gnomeangel When I started this was going to be a nice little wall quilt... Turns out it had other ideas... This is not even half of it cut and laid out. I love quilting! #quilt #nofilter #creativeprocess 4d

gnomeangel That's my #seabreezemqal top done. It's made with Kona cottons and @dearstellafab confetti dot sparkle (white and gold) - I'm quietly happy with it. Going to quilt it with aurifil this weekend (hopefully). How are your #seabreezemqal coming along? 5d

gnomeangel Putting my #seabreezemqal together while listening to Nick Cave and thinking about what I could do if I get in to #sewvivor. Have you seen the awesome that is @msmidge and @katrinafisk's #seabreezemqal quilts? Check out my blog to find out a little more about each of them! (link in profile) 5d
  •   jobeemm nick cave 5d

  •   gnomeangel @voodoorabbitfabric oh I didn't know that - that's exciting! His concert that I went to in Adelaide is on of my top 5 all time concerts. Was amazing!!! 5d
  •   greenandbell Nick Cave... Legend. I used to live near him in Brighton & Hove, it was so weird seeing him in normal situations like at the post office! 5d
  •   muchoxoxo Oh you had me at Nick Cave...!!!!! 5d
  •   gnomeangel @lethargiclass hello! Ok managed to work out a subscribe via email - it's in the sidebar of my blog - let me know if you have any issues. 4d

gnomeangel While the lad and I play trains and learn about making our own pasta you can check out today's hosts for the #seabreezemqal @happyspider6 (Penny's done a fabulous podcast) and @thedovenest (Rachel's done a great line drawing so you can work out your colours before cutting fabric) and I've interviewed them both today on the blog.

  •   pieladyquilts Her cookbooks are awesome. I read through them and want to follow her to the market and pick up everything she does. 6d
  •   auntiepami @gnomeangel I love Italy. I have way too many cookbooks. I'd be curious how you liked the pasta. 6d
  •   katrinafisk Since my husband isn't Italian, I am secretly holding out that one of my 3 daughters marries one. I WANT AN ITALIAN NONNA too!!!!! 6d
  •   nightingalequilts ......I learnt some stuff from my Nonna. 6d
  •   olddogwoodworks So does that mean you'll finally get to use that pasta maker I gave you? 6d
  •   gnomeangel @olddogwoodworks that's the plan! Hoping to make my own ravioli and then surprise you with it when you come visit and build the arbor in the backyard 6d
  •   olddogwoodworks @gnomeangel That will be a surprise! 6d

gnomeangel What's wrong with this picture? That's right - that's a pacifier melted into the toasters element... Guess we're going toaster shopping! #lifewithatoddler #mademelaugh 1w
  •   ruthrowe Maybe buy the Kmart $6 special until the toddler is a bit older 1w

gnomeangel Am I the only one who's considered hiding broccoli in the mashed potato so THEY'LL eat it???? 1w
  •   janellewind They're my sons favourite. He'd eat a plate full if I let him. We called them trees when the kids were little too 1w
  •   belloquacity My lot love it. Would eat it raw if I let them! I had a good recipe for 2 year olds as the broc was the trees, use dinosaur pasta and tin tuna was the rocks in the jungle, with a sprinkling of cheese... It's always tricky feeding little ones compared to adult flavours. Good luck! 1w
  •   lululollylegs Trees here too :) 1w
  •   sewofcourse They love it now, but I used to put it in pasta sauce, only way to have them eat most veg ;-) 1w
  •   kayprovins We called them green trees. 1w
  •   puremagicphotography One of mine will eat NOTHING green. I hide spinach in almost everything lol 1w
  •   quilting1943 I do this too my grandkids don't even know I have veggies in the mash potatoes works well 1w
  •   blotchandthrum Ha, my littler one won't eat potatoes. Have you looked at Jessica Seinfeld's cooking for kids cookbook? 1w
