Bloggers Quilt Festival

I am joining in at The Bloggers Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.
This is always such a fun few days looking at every ones blogs and getting a chance to chat with everyone who leaves comments!
I have been so busy planning my wedding that I haven't been sewing at all! Shocking, I know!!!
So, I am going to have to tell you all about a quilt I made earlier in the year.
It now lives on my couch and I snuggle with it every night, even when its not cold!

My Mum was interested in learning how to make quilts, so I got out 2 jelly rolls from my stash and we both made a quilt each.We sat side by side at my kitchen table each Tuesday until they were finished. We used the same pattern and the same fabrics.

You could say we have twin quilts : )

I just love how they turned out.

It would have to be my favourite quilt for sure!

Thanks for looking!!!

Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi

Organising a wedding is insane!!!
Because this is a positive only blog, That is all I am going to say about that! : )
My friend Kristie
recently did a blog post telling us how great Canada is. I totally believe her too! It is definitely in my top 3 places to visit!!!
Anyway, It made me think about Melbourne.

I think I take living in Australia for granted sometimes.
I do love this place.
There are heaps of "BIG" things everywhere! Whats not to love about that!?!

I love that Aussies give each other nicknames, many of which are longer than the original names! They usually end in an, Robbo, Wayno, Chambo,
We actually do call each other Mate and we really say G'day!
If you have ever seen the movie, The Castle. It is a glimpse into Aussie life for sure! Every one I know can relate to that movie! : )

I love that we pretty much have our own language, similar to English but not quite the same!
Australia is very laid back with pretty great weather too!
If anyone remembers the tourism adds from the 80's, yes, we do throw prawns on the Barbie!

Oh yeah, everyone has a Koala in their backyard!
Kidding! I think tourists see more Koalas than the locals do!
Here's the part that you tell me what you love about where you live!
If you live in OZ then feel free to mention things that I have left out!!!
