HAPPY 2011

Happy 2011 to everyone in blogland. 

It has been a while since I last posted.  6 months to be exact.  The last 6 months I have been busy working almost fulltime and spending time with the family and keeping up with the everday madness.  With all that happening I haven't had much time to get on the computer so my poor little blog has been neglected and so has my sewing.  Hopefully with a new year started I can get back on board and start blogging and sewing again.

I took off 4 weeks from work over Christmas and we went away to our beach house.  Lots of reading and relaxation happened there and I also managed to get some sewing done. 

Here are a few things I have been doing over the last 6 months.

A cushion for a friend that had a baby over 3 months ago.......better late than never!!! 

A quilt I'm making for my brother which I was going to give to him for his birthday in June last year but I didn't get it finished.  And then I was going to give it to him for Christmas but surprise surprise I didn't get it finished.  So it will be done for his birthday in June this year.............fingers crossed.

A few blocks I made up because I love these fabrics and colours.  Not sure what I'm  going to do with them yet.

Before Christmas I taught my friends 8 year old daughter how to sew by hand and she made herself a cute little cushion.  After she got the hang of it she wanted to learn on the sewing machine so I got her started on a quilt and this is what she has done so far.  She picked up sewing very quickly and has done a great job.

Another baby quilt I'm working on.  

Jarrod starts his first year of high school on Monday so I have been busy contacting and labelling these.

Well that's what I've been up to since July.  I'll try not to neglect my blog for that long again.

I will be around to visit your blogs soon.  Have a great weekend.
