Strangely I am struggling with technology.  I would have to say that in the last 8 years I have totally lost interest in the finer points of technology and if I can't switch it on and get it to work then that is just not good enough.

Why the ramble? Well, I had a post planned but the photo is on my phone and I can't get the text into the blog post using my phone, blah, blah, blah.

Jump forward a few hours and  I came across this blog and after looking at the beautiful photos, I did wonder does Famapa point and click - like me or set up a tripod, focus and pose the shot, taking lots of time - like our friend M who stayed with us last week

So again a post without photos apologies.

I started a new job in January and also training for a 10k run.  I'm not a natural distance runner so it's proving to be a big challenge, especially as I have lost lots of time now I have the new job!

Beach Bag

I'm managing to get a bit of sewing in and completed another bag which was a commission, my first one...

I've sent the girl's quilt to the quilt shop to be quilted.  I have decided that there is nothing wrong with deciding to give the bigger, more difficult things to someone else as I don't have the time to put in the practice any more.

But I am quilting and hopefully finishing within the week, a baby quilt for our neighbours new baby girl...

It's a bit of a time saver as the fabric has the patchwork printed on and I'm just following the lines but it's the thought that counts!!
