The story of my death has been totally exaggerated! Just keeping my head above water, with full time work, many things have slipped, and Facebook has me in it’s deathlike grip!
Foolishly I thought when I bought my first smart phone I would be content to just puddle around with it, still keeping up with my other modes of communication. Sadly I am a changed woman, and perhaps not for the better…..I use my tablet and my phone almost to the exclusion of all other communication tools, so here my laptop sits waiting for me to come back to her and spend some quiet time together!
The situation is not helped by the fact that one week I’m in bed before 9pm and the other week not home from work before 11pm. Even so, I’m sure there are a few moments between sleeping and being at work I can make the time to keep a record of what I do in my sewing room or of the many other things I’d like to have a journal-like record of for the future.
A number of years ago I had a blog-book printed and it was so interesting to look back at what I had accomplished so let’s see if I can get my groove back and blog-on!
First things first, here is an updated photo of my beautiful grand children, my how they’ve grown!
Photo’s of Quinn & Brooklynn at one day old to remind me of how it all began.
Brooklynn & Quinn now!
While I have been doing very little stitching, I have managed to make some cards and get lots of reading done.
This project was for a swap we had at our Brisbane SC Quilters group At the Christmas breakup day we swapped “Ugly Fat Quarters” then it was suggested we make something with our “Ugly” and swap again at our first GTG for 2014. These boxy bags are what I came up with. Below is the bag I received in this swap.
This is my current WIP, scrappy hexagons. I used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut the fabric from my scraps.
I’m now reading part two of Ken Follett’s Century Trilogy, Winter of the World. Having just finished Fall of Giants, part one. I have been eager to keep following this gripping tale. The writer has woven fictional characters into a historical story, it’s an eye opener for me, not having a deep knowledge of modern history, the first book travels through the lead up to and the 5 years of WW1.
It has certainly given me a different view of world events.
Some of the cards I’ve been making:-
This is still to be completed, so far I have a square, it may or may not become a cushion cover in the future? For now it makes a nice photographic backdrop.
I think this is as much as I can remember to catch up on, so I do hope I can keep up with my activities on my blog, because back tracking is tough work!
