Back up and running - well kind of!

Well I took a hiatus from social media for a while..... lost interest, wanted some time back because IG, blogs etc. are fantastic but I can lose a good few hours, plus I haven't been doing any sewing or quilting for absolutely ages!!
Then I felt the need to get back into it all until...... I got back on Instagram and my account had been hacked! Not going to go into it in too much detail in this post but lets just say we put our hearts and trust in a little app which has the worst customer support ever!! In fact I don't think there is even any support just little automated bots!
Then there is Flickr..... a platform I loved! It kind of started my creative journey, put me in touch with lots of creative like minded people in real life and the swaps and bees - they were great!!! BUT another company was taking it over and I decided to close my account down, hence the strange looking images on this blog right now! So I have a bit of tidying up to do, need to think about blogging, whe…

2018

Happy New Year!
I managed to capture this stunning sunset on the last day of 2017, which was, lets just say a challenging year. Plenty of highs, good memories and laughs but also lots of tough times.
I am praying that 2018 will be a year of good health, happiness and fun times for all my family and friends! Who knows I might even get the sewing machine out :)


Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all that celebrate and yay for a long weekend!

2017 and a bit of a brain dump!

Hello! Well you might be shocked or a little surprised by this post since the last post was, well like, ages ago!
And sorry no sewing/quilting make photos as I haven't touched my sewing machine since last June! I have palpitations just thinking about that! 
Reason for absence - selling my home, looking for a house, buying a house, renovating and redecorating said house to make it into my new home! 
There has been stress, tears, laughter and now lots of dust and I mean dust when walls get taken down but slowly it is all coming together. 
Yesterday, however, I seemed to have some kind of epiphany about my creative, sewing, quilting journey and having not sewn since last year what I was missing. 
I love being creative and sitting behind my desk with the sewing machine or just playing around with fabric! Most of what I used to sew was not for me. Sewing was for gifts, quilting Bees or swaps. I used to love getting to know new people from all over the world through bees and swaps, and …

11 months later

Yes, it's only been 11 months since my last post!!! How did that happen? Well this year has flown by and most of it has been taken up with selling my very much loved home and buying a new house which will soon be my very much loved home! I knew it might take a while but not most of 2016. Packing, moving and unpacking (well sort of!) has happened and now its time for decorating, literally from top to bottom. Good news is I get to plan a nice new and slightly bigger office / sewing room - yay! I hope to be back up and sewing sometime before Christmas, if I can find all my sewing bits and pieces, so look out for a new bag or pouch plus a load of quilt blocks that need making into a quilt! See you all soon!

Hello!

Well hello there!!
Long time no see and if there is anyone still out there reading my blog, I'd be a little bit surprised as it has been ages, so if you are hello and thanks for stopping by!

A few pictures to kick off my blogging for 2016:

London Modern Quilt Guild - a lovely way to spend a Sunday!

So yesterday, after a couple of months of annoying trains and engineering works typically on a Sunday, I managed to get into London and spend a lovely afternoon with my quilty friends at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting. It was so nice to catch up with everyone and meet new visitors, and yes they travel far - a lady all the way from Australia!!
I always feel so inspired and ready to rush home and sew after the meetings and remembered to take some photos too! If you want to find out more about the guild check here!

Here are some of the highlights!







and yes we do meet in a pub!! It's very lovely!
