Very slack blogger!

There hasn't been too much blogging happening here lately, I have been too busy getting into a new routine of regular exercise and healthier eating. It is time now for me to do this and I have been doing some form of exercise most days. Heck, I even got up at 5.30 the other morning to go swimming!!!
After trying to fit in the exercise in my busy life it seems that mornings are the best times for me. This means I need to start exercising at 6am to get in 30-45 mins exercise before needing to get ready for work.
One of my goals when I started this program was to learn to run properly but have since discovered some leg and feet issues which have meant that I am on non weight bearing exercise only for the time being. This means the pool for me - very hard to start this in winter!
Anyway....enough about that!
We have had 2 sewing days in the last month. The first one we all made the same pattern of a bag out of a Quilts & More magazine.

Then last week we all decided to our own thing, and Glenda & I caught up on a block from our Mystery Designer BOM ( from a couple of years ago!), Mum was putting together her quilt top from the very first quilt she ever started (mine is further behind than hers and still in a bag LOL) and Maria made some covers for the ice packs they use on the tiny babies in the NICU. Elsa, Maria's cousin, also joined us and she was crocheting slippers.
So we were a bunch of busy sewers but we  have such a great time together,  talking and laughing. 
Just one photo but we are all at our "workstations"!!


Not much sewing happening in the next few weeks, but am really looking forward to heading to the Craft & Quilt Fair in Darling Harbour in Sydney in June for a day and meeting up with some bloggers there. I am staying in town that night and hopefully we will all be able to enjoy dinner together after the show. I am then going to enjoy the rest of the weekend in the city with Craig.


Till next time!
Anita
