I have been quiet on the blog; there are several reasons for this, so please excuse this overly wordy post!
Good news first! A new niece means I can sew the label to the appropriate quilt and gift it.
The kids have been overjoyed with the arrival and quickly headed for a cuddle. I have yet to meet the bundle of sweetness, as I have been caught up with work, illness and finding somewhere to live!!
Yes, that is right! Three weeks before I need to remove the machine from its present home … I need to find a new one for all of us! Maybe this is a blessing in disguise? However, after 14 years in the one house … I can say it is not a pleasant experience. As we are not fortunate enough to own our own piece of real estate, and probably never will … we shall have to rely on the kindness of some random real estate. Let’s hope our long history as a reliable tenant is looked upon favourably. I need a really big room, and this is more difficult than I expected. After all it is a 14 foot table!
All this upheaval has me unable to sew, quilt or even think about it. So sad, and I really can’t wait till all the anxiety settles and I feel like creating again. In the mean time, I am working on some blocks for an exchange. This exchange is inspired by THE controversial quilt shown recently at Quilt Con. I have been drawing out my design and getting the components ready. If you follow modern quilting at all, you will know the one. I am so excited by this project. It mirrors my sentiments ( …and potty mouth) regarding my current situation. I am seeing this as something to pull me out of my quilthole!
