29/52 The 52 Project

So I’ve just discovered The 52 Project by Practising Simplicity and absolutely love the concept and hopefully the acheiveability, so I’m starting mid-year but I don’t care and I’ll undoubtedly miss a few. But here goes…

We recently headed North for a family road trip, so here a few holiday snaps.

We visited my parents, who have a few chooks. Egg collecting is always a hit



We had a fun day riding the toboggan at the big banana, and strolling along the Coffs Harbour jetty.


And Stella turned one this week.

no 4. cubby lane, funville | hannah grace photography

i recently posted what i get up to when i’m not taking photos, here is another project just completed  for my daughters 4th birthday last month.

a ‘little’ house renovation, we bought a secondhand cubby house online (it was originally a target one) and decked it out. i’m super pleased with how it turned out, it was worth the hours of painting in the shed at night, inhaling toxic paint fumes!

my fave parts….. the window box, the mailbox, the little green cupboard (bought off gumtree, nearlly didn’t get it as it was so ugly, but it came up awesome), the wall canvas (from the reject shop), how happy p was when she saw it and the hours of amusement it has already provided.

granny squares | hannah grace photography

so it’s been a little bit quite here through winter, but i have filled my creative quota in a few different ways.

firstly i have taken up quilting, which i totally love. it’s quite therapeutic to chop things into small pieces and then but them together again. my first project was a cot quilt, and my second project is granny squares using gorgeous tilda fabrics.

here it is under construction…

before, each square is made up of 12 white and 13 coloured 3 ” squares. so in total i had to cut out 180 white squares and 195 coloured ones.

after (a bit wonky, but hey i’m a beginner), one down, fourteen more to go.

all the block squares completed

my favourite one (i think), love all the tilda fabrics, i did have to use a few ring ins though as i didn’t quite have enough tilda

the quilt top is now together, will update with pics soon

update, here is the finished quilt on my big girls bed. I’ve also started a facebook page called HELLO SUNSHINE so pop over and like me 😉

the beauty of having two girls is that you get to play dress ups… they don’t get much cuter than this!!
