Howdy there

Kaleidostars_almost there

So, apart from my little QuiltCon announcement, it’s been more than three months since I’ve been in this little space of mine. Not that I’ve not been crafting mind! Probably because I’ve been doing lots of crafting, not photographing it or writing about it.

I have:

** Made quilts. Four in the past three months just by me (which seems like a whole lot but is not as many as I’d like to have achieved).

** Quilted three quilts for a client:

** Taught a friend to let go of the rules and make a quilt that she will love. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It does have to be. And, then quilted that quilt for said friend as a farewell gift (she and her family are moving to France on a posting!):

** Enjoyed spending time helping another friend towards a finish.

** Taken on the role of co-ordinating book reviews for this ace website while my friend and her family travel around Australia for a whole year (no, not jealous, not. at. all!!).

** Learnt to crochet and made countless washcloths as Christmas gifts for family and friends.

** Watched my (not so much anymore) baby girl learn to walk and climb:

** Celebrated Birthdays, Christmas and the New Year with family and friends.

Birthday Picnic

** Welcomed some new family members:

New Girls

** Enjoyed the company of my children and their friends during these summer holidays. I’ve also enjoyed how slow we can be without having to rush out the door to school each weekday:

How have the past few months been for you? More on those quilts I’ve made soon, but for now, back to the summer holidays.
