I am pretty sure that I have certainly past that mystical point in time. I wake up, do stuff, then it's bed time again. Where did that day go????? Then it happens over and over and the week is gone!!!!
I love my life and I want to savour it!
I am enjoying my sewing, just chugging along on a few projects, with an eye to finishing a few for our local guild's show in October.
I am quilting Harperville, a flannel quilt pattern by Kathy Doughty.
I loved the new venue and the quilt display was great. The day didn't end so well for me, with a phone call mid afternoon from my brother to say my 89 yr old Mum had been taken to hospital in an ambulance after a nasty fall.
So, from a before dawn start, to a day at the quilt show, then a 2.5 hour drive home, to a hospital emergency room till after midnight, it was a pretty big day.
A broken nose, a broken wrist and stitches in the head has meant that my dear old Mum has required some fairly intense TLC for the past few weeks. Thankfully she is now close to mended and getting back to being fairly independent.
Last week as a reward for being the dutiful daughter, Top Gear and I snuck away for a few days to visit Mudgee and surrounds. We visited a few wineries, went for a few long walks, checked out the local museums and ate far too much good food.
Another little project is fast coming to fruition. About six weeks ago I did the deal with our local sewing machine store and a Sweet Sixteen quilting machine came home to live with me. (Haven"t actually had much time to practise on it yet ..... read first part of post.) Hmmmmm, exciting yes but where was I going to put it? I moved it into the 2nd spare bedroom (my sewing room is in the 1st spare bedroom) but I wasn"t really happy with that set up.......brainwave hit.....knock the wall out and make two rooms into one. Surprisingly, Top Gear agreed it was a good idea so this happened.....
Add into all this chaos, regular activities like exercise classes, sewn groups, book club, running a household (or two), and keeping up socially with friends......well.....
TIME WHIZZES BY!
