Just stuff

I won this little lady some weeks ago from Tara at Waffling Along. She is going to be watching over my sewing room and keeping an eye on the stash when I'm not home.

I finally caught up with the lovely Michelle. We've been working together for a year and a half and have been talking about a stitching session but it just hadn't happened. Mish sent the text, did some baking and cracked the champas. We had a great evening and both managed to get some sewing done in between gossip and choccy. The butterfly quilt Mish is working on is absolutely lovely.

The last two days were supposed to be high productivity and a heap of sewing with my friend Jo. A visit to the Makers Market was about as close as we got to being crafty. Jo bought a great Ipod case from Cam and then we had a lovely, unhealthy lunch by the Lake in Daylesford.

I can't help but think of the horrific fires in Victoria on this day last year. I was glued to the tv and listening to the radio for hours, I live in a very treed area and felt nervous to say the least. I can't imagine how people have managed to pick up the pieces. My heart goes out to everyone affected.

  1. Sounds like you've had a good few days, even if you weren't as productive as you planned to be.

    Little Lady looks grat, but I'm really puzzled by what she is standing next to?

  2. Cute little girl ! Thanks for the sneaky you sent , it's going to be amazing !

  3. Dear Abbe, thank you so much for the lovely welcome to blogland!
    I love your blog and will need a little more time for a proper visit...
    :) I am LOVING what I see!
    I love the quilt you are making for your friend, and making an extra one for charity is a wonderful idea!
    Greetings from a fellow fabricoholic from Cyprus,

  5. I'm Back! as soon as figured out the Follower-thingy I came rushing back, :)!
