indeedy... back to the real world.....
must I? really??? I have been a little slow, I have to admit, in rejoining the human race. I have taken it nice and slow, but it is now time to hit the ground with my feet running. I have a crazy week ahead, with a couple of deadlines, 3 classes to teach (two at night time), a friend from Canberra coming up to stay Friday night, then head off on a retreat Saturday lunch time. And all this, of course, is in amongst working, mothering and house keeping! Phew!!... I'm exhausted already..
I have a million photos to bore you with from our 'fantabulous' holiday in Thailand (actually there is only 1300, but I will try and limit it for you...), but I thought I would just start off with one today that tells you where my head was at while away.
I had prepared my little 'indulgence' project to take away with me (indulgence meaning "I really should be working on something else" but is something different, that I haven't designed... therefore don't have to think about, just for me), and thought that I should at least get a couple of stitches sewn to make it worth my while taking away. So, Darryn has taken the girls down to the pool, I sit on the balcony, and 'voila!' (french for 'oh crap look what I've done'), the first piece I sew is upside down and back to front!! So I laugh, put it down, and go to the pool!
have a great week,
p.s. my project is an English piecing BOM, which I am making in civil war fabrics. Yes, very different to a lot of things I do, but I am loving it, probably because I it is so different. I have a very diverse taste when it comes to quilting.
