Not a huge amount has been getting achieved in the last couple of weeks (I am typing this as my little girl sits on my lap trying to 'help' me type, and clicking the mouse. Fun times.) My long suffering partner went back to work last week, after three weeks of holidays. It was awesome having him home (especially since he's been away so much in the last year). He has just gotten a new job and once he starts, he will pretty much be home every night which is fantastic - but the last four weeks before he starts the new job he is working interstate. Sigh.
Since it's still school holidays for another couple of weeks, it means sewing time is very limited - slightly frustrating with the amount I need to get done (quilting up quilt tops for the appeal mostly), but at the same time the kids and I have been having a great time pottering around doing holiday stuff. It's been fun - and I need to remind myself that pretty soon they won't want to hang out with the daggy old people who are their parents ;o) Carpe Diem and all that.
The response to the Bush Fire Appeal has been amazing - it's really exciting getting squishy packages arriving at my door. The flood of quilts have started rolling in - Susan's quilt top arrived at my door last week and I've been quilting it when I get a chance.
A few others have arrived too, and are being sent off to their new homes today. I'm planning on setting up a blog page with all the donated quilts and who they're from when I get my act together :o)
I forgot to draw winners for the Tea for Two patterns too! I really enjoyed reading what fabrics you thought would work :o)
