Just popping in to say hello. Life is ticking along here. It's been a busy old time filled with all sorts. You know, the usual, sorting out spaces that needed it ages ago, doing some necessary work for our company, keeping a child from tipping over the edge as she faces a big change in schools, losing two stone in weight and inventing a recipe for calorie free chocolate cake. Ya, I wish! Obviously spending too much time by myself has not been good for my own sanity as I drift into the realms of fantasy.
Today I rewarded myself with some sewing time. Not sewing I should
be doing, but starting a whole new project. It's been in my brain for a while, and since I have been doing lots of house re-organising some of my fabric got tidied as well. I had a lot of LV charm squares. I knew this already, but handling them made me want to finally go ahead with this idea of mine. So today I did.
I'm really pleased with the way the Sketch stands out against the LV fabrics. I've a bit more to add to it so it gets to an acceptable size but it was a good days work.
Here and there I have been getting a bit more done on my hand quilting projects. And excitingly, himself has been working on my sewing desk. It is going to be so gorgeous
. I am really happy with the American Ash I chose for it to be made from. I love the tactile nature of beautiful timber, and that smell when it has been freshly cut. This is going to be the best gift I have ever been given!
And proof that I really have been tackling unsightly chores. I even cleaned that window, and encountered the biggest freaking spider I have in years in the process. No wonder I avoid these tasks!
I'm still busy, but getting more things under control. Helping my child back to a happy confident mindset was the most important thing. No one warns you about this stuff when you have kids! I think I spent most of my childhood (and adulthood for that matter) away with the fairies so change didn't bother me near so much as it does some others.
I'm not back to daily blogging, but I am back more regularly. I missed you all. Missed chatting about what's going on here. Though I am still crap at replying to emails these days. Perfection is not going to be achieved any time soon!
