Gee I am a bad blogger, been so slack with putting anything on here!! Guess my life is pretty boring at times LOL
But here are some things that I have been working on. This is Block 1 of the Patchwork Village by Rosalie Quinlan. Her quilt is done in pinks and reds but I am trying to use up some of my stash so I am digging into my crate full of greens/mustards/burgandy and tans.
I am also trying to finish this stitchery from the retreat in Nundle last March. This is to make a bucket shaped stitching bag. Well I am trying to get it finished to take to Nundle this year (5 weeks away) just to show that I have finished something from the last 2 years retreats!! LOL
It had been so long since I had picked it up that the tracing had all faded and I had to retrace half of it again! But thanks to Peg, I have found a great new pen for doing the stitcheries, am finding it easier to see and it doesn't fade!! Thanks Peg!!
I have also discovered The Book Depository - what a great site! Just search for any books, much cheaper than anywhere else and the postage is free!! Can't get any better than that! So have stocked up on some reading, including some great quilty novels.
So that is what I have been up to lately. Have also changed my work days around so I have Mondays off instead of Tuesday. It is working out much better and am coping better with work and the work at home.
TAFE starts back next week for Tim so life will get a bit busier as he still doesn't have his license and we have to take him to and from TAFE 2 nights a week. He is doing well at his Personal Fitness course and is looking forward to getting back into it again.
Nathan has continued his uni subjects over the break and just found out he got a Distinction for his last subject so he was very happy about that and it has kept him motivated.
In two weeks time Craig goes on another 5 weeks leave from work. Unfortunately he has no say in when he takes holidays so as we only had holidays in November, I won't be able to take any time off. So he is going to do some painting at home, which is way overdue! And we will just have some long weekend breaks.
So how's that for a newsy post!! Makes up for the lack of posting LOL
