I had a play with the new Crazymom quilts, quilt-a-long block, but used a "sweet roll' so it was all teeny tiny, but very cute.
Sewing up some wraps for our teacher friend who is about to have her first baby, and the left over bits being made into "chuck" rags. Couldn't help myself after sewing with white white white - just had to add some colour onto one of them . . .
I was out in the garden just now, grabbing the last snippet of "the holidays". I put new straw in for the chooks, and weeded the little garden outside their quarters. Just as the darkness was coming in, as I was pruning a little overgrown plant, I came upon my (tiny) thyme plant. I smiled to myself, and declared out loud, "I've found some more time!"
I know everyone laments that they "don't have enough time" and "I wish I had more time" and "how do you get so much time" - but I am fully aware that we are all granted the same amount of time, and it's all about choices and what we choose to do with ours.
I have chosen this holidays, to spend a lot of time sewing, and as a result, I have yet another finish!. I am fairly pleased with my time this holidays, and I am just a little bit sad that I have to farwell the lazy days with no bell. . . but the good news is, in about 10 weeks, I will have another holiday, and I will be able to do it all over again.
My Nellie will miss me - although she will probably just go back to extended cat naps during the day. More to the point, I will miss her.
