Time...off and on....
I have been away, for what seems like a million blog days! Truth is, I just got caught up in the Great Everything. That stuff that happens, the stuff that gets you moving, first thing in the morning. Like lunches that need fixing, clothes that need getting on children who need to get and move about and go to school.
We had an amazing cold, turned ear infection, turned fella coming home because I could barely function as a human. And it all kind of caught us from there. Feels like not a day goes by when I don't get three loads of washing to do!
But I am still thankful. I am thankful that I have time to do all these things, and the resources to complete them. We had a tough financial month, and are about to have another one as well, but due to good management and fantastic planning skills, I took the time to stock cupboards, pay school fees ahead of time and get stuff paid in time. So it's not that we're in a pickle, it's that we're planned up!
I took some time this evening to grab hold of some inspiration that I got this afternoon. I visited a friend who made a skirt for a birthday present in 90 minutes! NINETY!!! It was sooo lovely to watch, that when we got home I threw myself in to the sewing room and got a quick quilt done. It's not a quilt by any quilters' standard, let me say. But it is two pieces of fabric, with lines sewn on and batting in between. And I'm sure my little girl will love it!
