I have returned to the land of the blog!!



back & front

Thank you one and all for your patience and lovely, helpful words of support as I crawled and scratched my way through the maze that is report writing after five years away!!
Just a little left to do before they get sent on their merry way but at last I don't bring it all home with me.
Finally began de-stresssing last weekend, which was our Queens Birthday holiday Monday by doing a little sewing. Such a pleasure let me tell you!! I used some of the fabric I bought at the 'Stitches and Craft Show' Mothers Day weekend.
A little patchwork creation inspired by one of my favourite bloggers Rose Hip.
Make sure to pay another of my favourite blogs Beach Vintage a visit too. The ever creative, resourceful and clever Simone has just opened an online shop with the most charming must-have items. Say I sent you!! ;)
Hope you are all happy and enjoying life. Roll on school holidays I say......! (8 days to go!)

So now you know where I do my thing! I have several other closets full of barkloth, chenille and grainsacks. I would love nothing better than to have you over and we could be like little girls and just pull it all out and sit and sew - but you live half the world away from me. I love your pillows - am loving the patchwork one - been thinking of doing that with some grainsacks that are too far gone to use the whole sack. Glad you are feeling a little more free now, sewing therapy certainly helps! Take care! C
