Hello to everyone out there. I hope the Christmas and New year periods were good to everyone.
December was quite frantic in my house with school events and kids going off in all directions so life got just a bit busy and I found it hard to manage for a while. But it is the New year now and everything has settled down and life has gone back to normal, as normal as it gets anyway! I am waiting for the school year to start and all the running aorund to begin again.
As for crafting, I have been very busy making things for others and things for me. I have spent more time knitting than anything else really but I am still sewing. As everyone who knows me knows, I got a new sewing machine just before Christmas, which the family would NOT let me use before Christmas Day (it really sucks being the only girl in a house of boys!!). I wanted one with a wider throat/neck so i could quilt things a bit easier. And it is amazing what a difference an extra three inches makes.
I have almost finished my first quilt on it, but with the heat we have been having, it has come to a standstill. progress so far...
What else? i have been knitting, this set is for a mother to be, I can't wait to give it to her. She is a young mum and I think she is going to love this set.
Work is still going well, I am still having fun, still enjoying the customers and still collecting way too much fabric and wool! And with my new machine, the sky is the limit. I have been having fun with the embroidery stitches; it sews rows of turtles, cars, houses, trees, as well as all sort of other stitches. 200 of them to play with.
So that is the basics of life in the madhouse.
