Hubby and Big Boy went to work in the garden. So in the meantime, while Baby Daughter was having a long nap, I started to "grow my mushrooms". I used an applique method that I hadn't used for a long time, I used back basting applique. This is for my hexie swap in the Australian Craft Forum.
Tomorrow is a big day for us. I am going to school for one hour with Big Boy. He will officially start "Nursery School" on 4th May. He will be attending school every afternoon from then. Before he starts, we have been invited to attend for one hour with him so he can familiarise himself with school. He will also be going on Wednesday for 1H30 on his own. He has been going to playgroup for about 18 months before so I don't think it will be difficult for him to settle but this is a big milestone in his life, one of many I believe, starting school. I still need to make his PE bag which I was hoping to start tonight...
See you soon!

A visit to Tunis, Sidi Bou Said and Carthage and all these magnificent doors, the lovely blue and white colours everywhere...
I decided to go for the right hand side pattern and managed to sew 11 during my holidays. Because they require so little fabric, it is easy to make them out of your scrapbox. It was so nice, while sewing them to think about what I had used the fabric for. A trip down the memory lane. I have more ready to be sewn and tomorrow I suppose is Klosjes Saturday, let see if I can sew so more.Time to get started on the Friday Night Sew-In now or I won't have anything to report tomorrow.

I used the same method that Amy used to make my Dresden plate one and it is great, no raw edges to tuen under by hand.
This is my first OPAM for April then.
Have a lovely Easter and see you soon!
