I am alive! I have not posted anything on my blog since April, so you might have been wondering.
The first half of this year has been hectic (I returned to full-time study and changed careers), and my hobbies and blog have been neglected. I blame a mid-life crisis for this abrupt change of direction. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, so it was clearly time for a change.
The downside of the change is that since Easter I have been working two jobs (one full-time and one part-time) and studying, but from this week I will only be working one full-time job and taking a few classes in the evenings, so I am hopeful that my sewing time will increase. A good sign is that last Sunday afternoon I had enough time to watch an episode of Poldark and to start cutting out a new baby quilt, and this afternoon I went to a friend’s sewing bee. Free time! Hurrah!
Before busyness took over my life, I booked myself in to do a box-making class with Ann‑Marie Anderson‑Mayes through the Embroiderers’ Guild of Western Australia. When the class reminder popped up in my diary earlier this month, I made the time to go, and now I have a new skill. Hurrah!
My dearly beloved husband is threatening to store his golf balls and greasy bicycle parts in it.
Yeah … right.
