Where does the time go?


I can’t believe it has been so long since I last posted. Time just seems to run away sometimes.

Only the usual stuff happening here. Finished one uni subject and have started another. Doing Christmas shopping and all the normal preparations for the end of the year. And…trying to stay out of the heat. Summer seems to have come early this year andĀ is making its presence felt.

Despite having gone away on one quilting retreat and havingĀ one extra long, long weekend, I don’t seem to be getting a lot done. Not the big stuff anyway. I am experimenting with bags, with varying degrees of success.

This one didn’t turn out too badly, but I am a little concerned that my self-invented construction methodology is not going to stand up very well to the actual rigours of bag use. So…I have bought a book on bag making and the next step is to work through it and try out some of the techniques, to see if I can make a better bag. I will endeavour to keep you informed.
