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.
