Help, I’m melting……God Bless the person who invented the air conditioner. We have been sweltering through 43 degree C heat today and tomorrow they are predicting 45, that’s 113 F. There’s no relief in sight as it’s 40’s through to the weekend. So we’re all camped in the Family Room keeping cool, don’t like my chances of a good night’s sleep though!
Onto other more important matters! I’ve fulfilled one of my new years resolutions, cleared out the fabric cupboard and tidied up the sewing room and Oopps…….started a new project. Just couldn't resist the beautiful rainbow of colours on Twiddletails blog of her new BOM, Rainbow Jane. Check out Anina’s new store.
I have admired the Dear Jane quilt for some time but the original colours and fabrics never inspired me to have a go.
When I saw those brights my heart started to beat faster and I knew this was the one for me. So my first month arrived and I have completed 5 out of the ten blocks.
It’s been a challenging and very rewarding process so far.
I have restricted the number of projects currently on the sewing table to just 4 so that I can have a break when I get itchy fingers.
Katherine and I are off to Sewjourn on Saturday. I was the lucky winner of a day out at Sewjourn last year and we’re off, sewing machines in hand for a day in the beautiful town of Lancefield about an hour north of Melbourne. You really must check out the homestead and studio on Jan’s blog, we can’t wait it’s going to be a great day of sewing, chatting and cups of tea.
We’re just about to wrap up 6 weeks of summer school holidays and the kids go back to school on Monday. The wee Princess starts school for the first time and is very excited about being a big school girl, Big Brother is going into grade 4 and isn’t impressed that he’ll have a little sister bothering him! I also start a new venture this Monday, I’m going back to work 3 days a week, aaarrgh! It’s been a while since I’ve actually had to do “real” work, I’m looking forward to the challenge of being Office Manager of our Church and it will keep me out of trouble now that I don’t have any kiddies at home and it will help pay for my addiction…….fabric.
I have made a few quilted notebook covers to take to work.
and eaten far too much of this over the holidays, time to get back on the wagon.
Pop on over to Kim’s Blog Bitty Bits and Pieces and enter her 100th post giveaway, it’s gorgeous!
Till next time, stitching love
