The quiet season

For all that I have been busy, I haven’t done much crafting. I thought that there would be a load of stuff to put onto the blog, but had to search to find anything at all. Definitely a lull in productivity. This is partly because I have been concentrating on the back room, but partly because I have not been well. I have fibromyalgia which has been bad the last few weeks and slows me down completely. It would seem that the mojo has disappeared and all I can do is hope that he will come back! meanwhile, here are some piccies of recent work…not many though!





Time flies…

I can’t believe it has been so long since I’ve been on here. Time goes so quickly! I have been busy clearing out the back room where I keep all my craft stuff so that I have space for my sewing machine and putting anything I can, linenwise into vacuum sealed bags to save as much space as possble. It’s great to watch a quilt shrivel up before your eyes and become about a third of it’s original size. Quite a space saver, which is good as space is something we don’t have much of.

Meanwhile it is nearly time for my third quilting class, which I am really looking forward to. Quilting is fun to do and very satisfying. Our teacher is very easy to understand and incredibly patient. I like being with a group of people, working and chatting.  Great fun! So, here are my first two blocks. In a few days I should have a new one to add to the collection. I’m only doing a lap quilt so it will be nine blocks in all.

Unfortunately this photo is a little over exposed, but the pale colour is actually that colour, a pale cream.
