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!

I'm back in bed with a fever again and soooo bored. Got the 8yo to give me a box of fabrics and I'm going to attempt to make a quilt all by hand… Let's see how far I get! Using a bundle of @michaelmillerfabrics Cotton Couture and some grey prints from @polkadotteafabrics #notasponsoredpost #ijustlovethepolkadotties #theyshouldsponsorme #procrasticraftneedsafabricsponsor #improv #quilting #patchwork #procrasticraft
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!
Reading :: The Artists Way for Parents. I’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!
