It's been over a month since I last blogged - Please forgive me. I have plenty of excuses though.
I finally have a health diagnosis ! After a lifetime of issues and false diagnosis I finally have a reason for all of my issues including the recent discovery of multiple joints having worn out - I have EDS - Type III Hypermobility Syndrome which has developed to a point of not being able to avoid or fix a lot of my issues but at least now we can work towards getting some management in place. We are working on some of the major issues first so my visits to doctors and surgeons etc will not cease but somehow I feel slightly better having my issues labelled !!
I've been pretty busy in the sewing room. A few new designs have been finished including some wool embroidery. This one is for an upcoming Australian magazine. I've also been working on some ongoing projects as well as some new ones
Including a sampler quilt designed by Helen Stubbings which will be released as a STITCH ALONG in cyber land really soon. It will give sewers the opportunity to use her iron on english paper piecing shapes. I have to admit to being very sceptical about them but after using them in the past week or so I am almost sold !
It is so much easier leaving the papers in as they are made from a water soluble paper.
I've almost finished one corner of the quilt so as soon as I have it together I'll show you.
And I've popped into the odd op shop for a spot of treasure hunting. These are from my visit to one last week. I love the sandwich plate and the forks are just gorgeous with a gold and silver tone.
And I made a trip to the newly refurbished local K Mart - Who knew about all of the lovely cheap home wares they now sell ???? OMG so many lovely things. This stand I think was $12 and these large plastic tubs with lids are perfect for storing large ongoing projects inside for just $8 each. I will be re-visiting again really soon.
And I've also issued a challenge over on my Facebook Tilda Lovers site to win 24 Fat Quarters from the 2 new soon to be released ranges. Pop over to the group to join up and find out how to win them.
Hopefully it won't take me as long to blog again.
