Yesterday, was a challenging day – and certainly turned me into the above “Frazzled Mum State”.  Shhhh!  I’ll gives you a heads up – with four children under 11 years – this happens all too frequently.

So now that the it is a new day :

An Ideal day.

A day of love, happiness and kindness.

A day of family.

A day of Quilting and Creating.

A day of admiring beautiful Quilts and being inspired by peers.

A day to relax and enjoy each other.

A day to teach and pass on crafts to the next generation.

A day not to make school lunches and negotiate children’s social schedules.

A day of sun and fun, at the beach and laughter.

A day not to make meals, not to clean or pick up toys.

This doesn’t sound like A LOT does it ????  Hmmm !  Maybe I newer MANY Ideal days to get through this list !

My Inspiration/ Mood Board  for Sewn by Leanne is really my Pinterest Page !!  Here I collect ideas, inspiration and am in absolutely awe of my fellow Quilters !!  I have recently created a board called Quilt Eye Candy – which I will post the Quilt I love !!

Here are just a few !!  I LOVE  Colour, Texture and Shapes !!

Spring is here !!

Spring is one of those seasons that just make you smile !!  And today it was just beautiful to see the Sun come through the clouds and feel its warmth.  As we drive around the suburbs now, the flowers are blooming and colours are returning.  it has been a COLD and chilly Winter here in Melbourne this year so it is nice to be finally defrosting !

To celebrate the start of Spring, I am joining the Blog-tember Challenge by the Brave Love Blog.  I have made this decision for two reasons:

  1. To stop myself making those gorgeous Farmers Wife 1930s Blocks for the Quilt Along, I have taken the pledge not to start before the 28th September………..
  2. To get myself into a routine of blogging more regularly – wish me luck !!

The prompt for September 1st (aka TODAY) is – Introduce yourself however you like !

So on this beautiful first day of Spring here, I’m taking the plunge.  I can’t guarantee I’ll post each day – but I will give it a go, and try and give each post a “Little Quilting Tweeking”.

sewnbyleanne_behindthescenes_leannephotoThis is me – aka – Leanne behind Sewn by Leanne.

I love to:    create, spend time with our family and friends,  listen and sing to favourite music (to the embarrassment of our children) and am completely passionate about Quilting.  I have recently rekindled my love for Paper Piecing !!

I enjoy:  being happy and living life to the maximum.  I am conservative by nature, so there is nothing rebellious or adventurous in my endeavours, but I do love to give most things a go – on one condition there is NO danger involved !

I am obsessed by:  Quilting, Sewing and most things crafty; being punctual; being kind to everyone – my Mum had a saying – “if someone hurts you – return them with overwhelming kindness, and the hurt will go ” .  This has generally stood me in good stead so far…..

I am passionate about:  our 4 gorgeous children – guiding them and steering them through life with a strong sense of self, faith and love for humanity.  I wish them to be independent, and happy individuals that love life, and a drive to be the best that they can be !!  (I’m a very proud Mum, aren’t I??)

 

sewnbyleanne_blogtember_Passions

When thinking of a Collage to put together my passions- this is the result – what is important to us.

  • our 4 children
  • our marriage (no photos of Mr B – he doesn’t enjoy social media)
  • our extended family and friends
  • Sewn by Leanne

Sewn by Leanne was created from my love of craft.  Having four children, life gets busy and Creating allows me to have an outlet, and yet still be the full-time Mum I enjoy being for them !!

If one asks me what my style is –  I always find it hard to answer !!  It depends on the project I have at hand – but with a broad generalisation – I would say – traditional with a modern twist.  Sounds like I’m naming a cocktail  😉 .

I often use traditional quilting blocks and give them a modern twist with vibrant modern fabrics !!

The road Sewn by Leanne has travelled so far, has been so exciting and stimulating – I tend to become completely absorbed by it !!  Blogging is a relatively new process, but one I’m SLOWLY getting the hang of…..  One of my sons said the other day “Mum you should be good at blogging – you just write what you talk about – and YOU talk ALOT”  Bless Him !!!

I hope you enjoy finding out more about Sewn by Leanne on this Blog-tember Challenge this Spring !!  Join me in my challenge……… and let me know if there are aspects to Sewn by Leanne that you would love to know about!

Until the 2nd !!

Leanne 🙂 xx
