#thisweekiam :: 23/52/15

Enjoying :: the wood fire on these cold mornings, minus 7 today! Also, I’m loving the look of the frost on the ground when I wake and the wonder the children have as they examine the formation of ice on the ground, stones, trees, all around.

Making :: lots of logs. Log cabin quilts are captivating all my thoughts at the moment and I’m doing my best to convert the ideas to fabric!

 
 

Working :: on releasing my very first pattern out into the world – the testers are on it and I’m frothing at the bit to see what they come up with!

Eating :: the fruits of my labours – since my babies could sit, they’ve helped in the kitchen with family meal preparation and baking. I remember the shock and surprise of people’s faces when they saw my first bubba, then a not-quite-three-year-old, slicing capsicum with a sharp knife. I’ve never shied away from letting my kids have a go (always with appropriate supervision and instruction) and yesterday, that bubba (now a not-quite-nine-year-old) came home from school and baked me a cake. She tolerated the help of the seven year old and together, they made the most delicious greek yoghurt cake!

Thanks to Miss 8 and Miss 7, we have dessert! #thisiswhyitaughtthemtobake

Reading :: The Artists Way for ParentsI’ve always considered myself to be very supportive of my children’s creativity so it’s great to have a resource for further exploration and hints and tips of ideas I’d not considered. After reading this, next on the list is a book for me and my creativity.

Waiting :: for airfares to go on sale! I want to book my QuiltCon flights and get that locked away before registration opens later this month!

    Such a beautiful cold morning wasn’t it! Very excited for you for your pattern. I’m sure it will be really well received! Have a great rest of the week.

    PS Jenny A said you’d been really ill – hope you are feeling much better by now!

      Thanks Michelle, yes, I’ve had pneumonia and have been really struck down, on the mend now but not there yet. Loving these cold mornings but that the days still hold such glorious sunshine!
