You’ve got to love a Monday that starts off with the family all laughing together until tears roll down their cheeks. I’ve been on a bit of a go-slow lately. It’s a combination of not really feeling it and wanting to spend more time with the boys and just chilling out. It’s been awesome and on the weekend I started to feel my sewjo creep back. I actually got out of bed on Saturday at 5:30am and headed straight to my sewing machine to sew blocks. It was a great feeling and one I haven’t had in a while. It did mean however that I was out cold asleep by 7:45pm on Saturday night, but it was the exhausted sleep of a happy person.
On Sunday I had the immense pleasure of heading the Canberra Quilters Biggest Morning Tea. It was such a great time and I’m a little bummed that I hadn’t been before. I’ll definitely be heading back next year and convincing more of my sewing peeps to attend. The event is held annually to help raise money for the Cancer Council. I ate so much good food that it’s inspired me to get back into the kitchen today and so I’m going to spend some time with the Little Man baking. I got up early this morning and headed to the grocery store to make sure we had supplies, so there should be no excuse for not getting into the kitchen to rattle those pots and pans.
This week I’m going to be putting the finishing touches on organising the last three (or will it be… I think there might be a fourth event on the cards!) events for 2017 (click here the events on the calendar so far). I’ve got to do some more sewing for secret squirrel projects and then organise the launch of my book. Such a busy week ahead but I have a spring in my step so it shouldn’t be too much of a chore. My fabric splurge from a couple of weeks ago arrived last week and so I’ve been dying to make time to fondle some fabric. I’ll be squeezing that in this week too!
