Nays Place - A new blog, new start and some fun and games.......

Hi to all after some lengthy problems with typepad I have made the switch to blogger - there is another Nays Place out there so I have also had a change of name - but it is still me - still disorganised, still slightly cuddly and still lining my shed walls with fabric, fabric and more fabric.

The dream is getting closer and I am stocking items to open soon - only on weekends to start with but you are always welcomed to come and sew you dont need to buy.

A quick update on whats been happening to me lately as it has been a very long time since I have been able to blog.

So 5 quilt tops made for Christmas and now I just have to make time to quilt them - oops wheres my magic quilting fairy

I have spent a lot of time reading other blogs and my favourites include Granny LozGail Pan designs and check out Gails new book, Linda from Gum Valley Patchwork and she has her book "Dear Prudence" finally published all about her incredible quilt.

A challenge from Anne and Bun; her and I have the same kit from Lisa at Dyed and Gone to Heaven Dyed and Gone to Heaven called Aurora so before Anne arrives home from her latest trip we have to have them complete - photos to follow later.

So a quick trip to Adelaide for Anzac Day as Dear Husband marched again - the marchers are getting fewer -  a lot more signs with no-one behind them but the crowd is getting bigger which is fantastic.

 We spend some time in Adelaide waiting for Nigel to finish "catching" up with his friends.  The kids and I explored - keep finding inspirations everywhere I look.

The kids and I had fun in Rundle Mall with the bronze pigs - Sarah cannot recall seeing them how long has it been since we were in Adelaide.

Back home to work Friday and then back to Adelaide for my cousins 30th - here she is with her cake and beautiful daughter - can you guess what Kaylee is after 

So off to church this morning - Children's mass and the kids are reading and being altar serving.  Then maybe just maybe I will be able to sneak off to Nays Place after....more projects planned for this year.

Waikerie Primary School is 100 years old this year and we have celebrations planned for August - I am helping put together a banner - all the older classrooms have designed a square with a theme and we are getting the younger classrooms to stamp the kids hands to border the banner.  Loving this project but can see some busy times ahead.

Take Care
Keep Stitching



  1. Hi Nay nice to see you on blogger I was just laughing about your description of your kids the only difference is my eldest "ïs nearly an adult" and I have two extra, the pink princess and Hoover (eats everything he shouldn't) I also have a she who must be obeyed and a I miss out on everything! I worked in Waikerie a long time ago and enjoy visiting when we pass through on holiday.

    1. Our kids are our joy inspiration and our greatest problems at time arent they- trying to juggle, be mum (and sometimes dad), be fair and teach them as well as let them learn is a fulltime job in itself. Glad to hear someone else has an interesting bunch.

  2. Hi Nay,can you email me please with your address, you have won the mag on my blog! Cheers, Gail

  3. Love reading this... inspired me to get my quilting book out again and have a squiwzy... Also thanks for the the quick mention of me in your first post.. loves ya Nay.

    1. All it takes is making time - so at the moment I'm knitting and crocheting at night - have some hand sewing to do but will wait till after the workshop this weekend.
