For the first time ever, we went into Sydney to see the fireworks on New Years Eve. We had a good vantage point - close enough to get a view of the fireworks, without being in the thick of the crowds.
On the first day of 2017 I felt that self imposed pressure to get straight back to blogging, but a post didn't eventuate. One day flowed into another, and it felt good to be doing other things.
Between Christmas and New Year, I did lots of sewing, with the express purpose of only attacking projects I'd already cut out or started. Believe me, it took much will power to stick to my goal, but I did.
I achieved so much!!!
In amongst the finishes was a quilt top. Almost three years ago, I sewed 36 mini log cabins, which became 9 quilt blocks. I'm excited about this one and will show you photos soon.
There's also lots of Christmas sewing to show you. Every member of my immediate family received something hand sewn last year. Feels odd to say last year, when it wasn't that long ago. Don't know if I'll ever manage that again!
I even took pics as I was sewing a couple, so expect some tutorials in the very near future.
Speaking of tutorials, I have several more in the works, all started long before Christmas.
Time, time, time - where can I buy some? I'm a lady of leisure - no longer in the workforce, my kids have left home, but I still don't have enough time for all I want to do. Ha, ha... better than being bored.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017, filled with lots of fun and laughter. See you later in the week.
