Life has been hectic for awhile .. so the blog has been on the back burner for a bit.
Lots of things going on with the house reorganisation and update .. bathroom is now complete and looking good, should have done this ages ago but you know how it is one puts it off or on the to do list.
I have now decided the house is far to large for me and the cat so have decided to rent a part of the house as a studio with an on suite bathroom it will be self contained and fully furnished ... if any one has any tips to pass on on this subject I would be pleased to hear from you.
Sewing, I have been doing lots of small items for swaps and gifts here is a sample of useless items that I did this last week....
My quilting MoJo is still missing, but have embroidery to fall back on .... will show what I have been doing another day
I have also been doing a fair bit of cooking for the freezer ready for the winter some casseroles, soups and curries I am getting so organised it is beginning to worry me ... shame I still can not get the ironing organised ...yeah ... all my good intentions of keeping up with it have flown out of the window again.
The mornings are getting cool here and the tracksuit bottoms have been on a few days already until the sun comes up, the long sleeved tops have been found from the back of the wardrobe and laundered ready, or into the Op shop bag ... why do we store away clothes and stuff we know we will not use again and will give away as soon as the season comes around again, must be the squirrel in us or the hoarding instinct.
So I will go and sort some more stuff, and catch up again soon.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
