A Quick Catch-Up

Thought I should pop in before another month has passed and give a quick update to my absences. Nothing more than just busy busy with everyday stuff ... working on the land and working off-farm doesn't leave a lot of time for crafting but I squeeze in what I can.

I have 3 main objectives for each month.  The first is a mystery quilt I have been working on with a new block each month.  The second is my 1 Xmas Item A Month ... 3 Santa's finished with 3 to go ... that will take me to the end of this year and next year I plan to work on my Cottage Christmas Garden.

The third is stitching 4 postcards each month for "Romancing the Roadtrip".  After this month I'll have 8 cards or 2 months left ... I'm very happy with how this one is turning out.

Back in early May I had the very unfortunate luck of losing control of my car in loose gravel ... the same road I drive at least 3 times a week and have done so for the last 13 years. Thankful I was being watched over as the car left the road, rolled and narrowly missed a large tree. Shaken and bruised, I was able to exit the car to then walk 3km (40 minutes) before I could get phone reception to call for help. Then began the running around trying to replace the vehicle as it was written off.

Visiting with family is always uplifting, even if it's farm work related.

Good news to share ... we're expecting 2 more grandchildren.  DD is due November and DIL is due January. So of course I have begun gathering fabrics for another "Little ???'s Farm" quilt and also a "Mother Goose Nursery" quilt.  We had a lovely visit with DD and family in late June and spent last Saturday with DS and family at a campdraft where both our son and grandson won prizes in their events.

Some sewing for DD and I have material for another that I need to get finished quick smart.

Time to go do some ironing of the mundane type ... uniforms for work.

I hope that however crazy hectic your days seem, you can find a moment to squeeze in some craft.

Here For August FNWF

Better late than never ... I haven't been anywhere ... just haven't been in blogland while the everyday stuff has taken over. 

SO ...

It's head down and ... sew!  You thought I was going to say something else. I have 3 small sewing related goals for each month and these jolly guys are on my list. One each month ... I made a start.

Thank you Cheryll for a lovely night ... it's nice to join in again.
