My poor neglected blog followers. I am sorry for lack of posts! No plausable excuse for my lack of posts and lack of comments on other blogs.
Warning long catch up post!
Today I am popping in to share a jumper I finished a few weeks ago and has taken me months to complete! If the weather stays how it has been the last few days I might get to wear it before next winter 🙂
Excuse the silly pose I was acting up for Ms 13.
I have created a few cards including sympathy cards that unfortunately went out the door faster than I could take a pic of them. The kiddos have mostly been using my stash cards and I have added a sentiment or die cut number appropriate for the recipient. Mr M has requested “21” on all sorts of cards including a baby card! I recently sent some of last years Christmas card makes to Aussie Farmers I saw a collection for on Facebook.
I have also been busy sewing. Continuing on with my contributions to Days for Girls and also a few presents. These were a recent 1st Birthday gift.
In early November I decided to start a new quilt for an upcoming December Birthday. None of the quilts in my stash were suitable! I’ll share pics of that when it is completed – it is a secret project.
I am not going to make promises about regular posts from now til post Christmas there is loads on the calender. Between now and mid January my 4 kiddos have a birthday + 2 of their partners – 6 birthdays in about 6 weeks including two 21st’s. We had one last week too. We will also be hosting Christmas lunch. Ms 18 is squeezing in a 2 week trip to USA. I wish I could get her to do some crafty shopping for me 🙂 She is in the first group of Victoria University students ever to go to NASA. And to top it off my boss would like me to work full time so I have declined the offer and am busy job hunting again. Just quietly I would be happy staying in my craft room.
Many of my regular readers may be familiar with my December/Christmas calender – we will survive the silly season. I hope you don’t feel to exhausted reading some of the things on my calender for the next few weeks. It will be OK. I have learnt over the years it is OK to say no.
Until next time
