Raspberry Muffins

I know how much the Mister likes raspberry muffins, so I decided to surprise him with a whole tray of them last night. Love seeing that face light up with a smile.

The recipe is super easy and very tasty. And if you want to be a little decadent just add some white chocolate. Recipe can be found here.

The Almost Daydream

So close!

I'm just waiting for yardage to arrive now so I can get the borders on.

Then it's time to quilt!

Be My Valentine

Valentine's Day has always been a bit of a non-event for me, but with a lovely boyfriend we decided to make the most of the weekend. So on Friday afternoon we made our way to the airport for a little lounge-time, then onto our flight to Brisbane. I worked a little magic to make sure we had the best seats on the plane. 

Once in Brissie we were whisked to our hotel, where we dressed up, then wandered to a lovely restaurant to dine amongst the other couples.Amazing food, including some very yummy pumpkin cheesecake.

Saturday morning we hitched a ride down to a friends house on the Gold Coast, and spent the rest of the weekend socialising, swimming, and just generally relaxing in the sunshine.

Great way to spend a weekend when you have an insanely busy week coming up at work (so apologies for the lack of posts lately).

Beach Time

It's been a bit hectic lately, with work and a couple of big markets coming up. But the Mister and I managed to sneak away to the beach for a weekend. Time out was just what we both needed, and the dogs absolutely loved it too.

Very sad to see the damage at Portsea Beach, but still a great place to swim.

There was a lot of this happening; nothing better than whiling away the weekend on a swing, watching the world to by.

There's a little sewing happening but not as much as I'd like. But I do absolutely love these blocks.
