janellewind Thank you SO much Lisa @chambsvacc for my gorgeous #aussiemoderninstabee block that arrived today. Thank you also for the extra goodies you included. I adore them all, especially the vintage fabric pouch. I'm loving this swap so much and will be sad when it ends. #aussiemoderninstabeehive1 1d

janellewind After a full day of stitching I finished quilting my quilt today. As a little celebration I headed out to breathe in some fresh air at the lake in between dance classes and Maths tutoring. #itsbeenabusyday 5d

janellewind I really didn't think there was a choc chip cookie in existence that tasted better than Toll House cookies. That is until I made a batch of Best-ever choc chip cookies by Pip Lincoln @meetmeatmikes from the gorgeous @frankiemagazine book, Afternoon Tea. These cookies are so delicious they might just be the best-ever after all. #theyreallyaredelicious 1w

janellewind I was trying to wait until I had the binding stitching in place before showing you a full shot of my now quilted Swoon quilt but I just couldn't wait. I just love it so much. I'm knee deep in meeting a tight deadline so can't allow myself to finish this just yet, so here's an almost full quilt reveal. Hasn't Sarah @patchworksplus done a great job with the quilting too. (Thank you Sarah, I owe you an email, sorry). Binding this will be my reward once my deadline has been met. #swoonquilt #terraaustralis2 @emmajeanjansen #thejanellewindcollection 1w

janellewind My blogging mojo seems to have gone on holiday without me and I realised today I haven't even blogged about my boys room. Since I'm not sure when or if that will ever happen, here's a peek into one side of his room. His is one of my most favourite rooms in our home. #renovating365 #sharemystyle #sharemystylekidsroom 2w

janellewind Let's talk planners. Next year I'd like to have something more than a diary. Somewhere that I can budget, memory keep, add photos etc. I'm seeing lots of different planners mentioned online and am a little overwhelmed as to which would be best for me. Do you use a planner? Have you bought one for next year? Do you have one in mind? Hit me with your thoughts and suggestions. 2w
  •   lucyandnorman Yep Erin Condren. Have I bought one for next year?!? Hah I usually buy mine next February! 2w
  •   emilylamplough I bought a A5 kikki k planner when they were on sale and it is the best thing ever! What I love about it though is that it is very similar to a filofax, but a third of the price, and you can make your own dividers and calender layouts depending on the year/season so you can customise it to suit your own needs. When I bought mine, I took everything out that they gave me and made my own calender and various lists to suit what I needed it for (day to day life, uni, bills etc). I hope this helps you a little bit more xx 2w
  •   kels_sews I absolutely LOVE my Erin Condren planner. I even have a $10 off coupon for you if you decide to purchase one. Just let me know and I'll give you a coupon link. 2w
  •   patchworksplus I love my Inner-B... They are great 2w
  •   meaghanmccorkell A5 Kikki k planner with Kikki k cute diary inserts. Have sections for diary, kids, pen pals, knitting & sewing ;) 2w
  •   shopgirlsh Did you see Heidi Swapp is doing a planner class at Big Picture Classes called Capture 30? Sign up is this month. She posted it on her IG and you can see it on Big Picture's web site. 2w
  •   saleak @janellewind Vanessa has been looking. She loved the idea of A filofax but not the price. Webster Pages has a new one so I have ordered one for her from Blue Bazaar much better price http://websterspages.com/whats-new/color-crush-personal-planners/personal-planner-kits.html 2w
  •   pixiesagwa1 I have many planners but my favorite is either the midori travelers notebook regular size or the Filofax personal size Malden . Both you can buy online and buy inserts for on etsy to customize the way you like. Look at @wakako_baumkuchen 2w

janellewind I was very excited to receive my third Spring #jellywaresyarnclub package in the mail today. I'm loving the navy yarn that Jodie has sent me. Now to finish my scarf before starting this months project. 3w
  •   ancret_shipton Navy is one of my favourite colours. When I moved I donated all of my wool to the school knitting club, but I kept 2 balls of navy because I love it so much and couldn't part with it. Maybe this winter I will finally knit it into a scarf ;-) 3w
  •   lilydencreations I'm a month behind too Janelle. 3w
  •   meaghanmccorkell That's a beautiful colour too & my favourite colour @janellewind & I too am a month behind 2w

janellewind I may have spent most of the night finishing this book. It was totally worth it. I loved this story. It definitely kept me guessing till quite near the end. Thank you @mardi_jane for the recommendation. Now, what should I read next? 3w
  •   onecrafteemumma Ohhh I'll add this to my growing list. Thanks for sharing! I have been reading Gone Girl and am about 1/3 of the way thru and am only now hooked on it! 3w
  •   juliedevilliers I just finished 'The seafront tearooms by Vanessa Greene' @janellewind Was such a sweet story. Or another one I have just read (for something completely different) was 'Fly a little higher by Laura Sobiech' I shed many a tears reading this try story. 3w
  •   wendysquiltsandmore I really enjoyed The Rosie Project by Grame Simeson. 3w
  •   melbrewin Oh I might have to read this!! 3w
  •   rodandi14 I just finished reading a fantastic book called My Real Children by Jo Walton. It's about an elderly woman who has dementia and is in a nursing home. She is remembering her life but doesn't know which version she is remembering is the truth. When I started to read it I almost gave up after the first few pages, I thought it wasn't for me. Persevere and read it, it is a beautiful book and I read it in a day and a bit it was so good, and I was disappointed that it finished. 3w
  •   mardi_jane I'm glad you enjoyed it @janellewind 3w
  •   gidgeetree Bitter Wash Road by Garry Disher 3w
