Change



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!

  4. Oh you are so lucky to have a whole room, I had the chance to buy a set up like this recently for a total bargain price but I don't even have anywhere to store it, let along set it up.
    I am happy to hear you have found a place too, eat chocolate and de-stress.
