A new hobby

I haven't been scrap booking for so long.

I have now started to quilt. A hobby I never thought that I would ever do.

How it started. I met up with some lovely ladies who I had know for quite awhile for lunch with kids and grandkids. They met up each week for a sewing day. I thought I would come along even though I din't sew.

At the timed they were discussing a christmas quilt. I decided I would try a different one. From this web site. I had been a big reader of her blog for quite awhile. The quilt seemed a lot more basic because all of the squares were the same shape.

So since then I have finished another quilt and in the middle of another.

Hopefully soon I will publish the progress of my quilts so I won't forget what I have done.

What am I doing?

What am I doing?

I want so much to get back to the place where I can create.

I have all my scrap booking stuff in boxes. My artist trading cards that I h ave received and made in a basket.

I want to be able to get myself out of this rut that I am in.

How long has it been

It has been so long. I can't promise I will write more. Have had so much going on. But I suppose not the sort of thing I would write in a public blog.

My son has started high school. I think I have founded the adjusting almost harder than he has. He is growing up. I am so proud though.

I haven't scrapbooked much at all. I look at my supplies and I miss working on it. There is nothing really stopping me from starting it up again.

I am still a creative team member for Aussie Dares. There was a month or two that I didn't do anything. I do feel bad. This month the theme was white. I was inspired. So I thought I would start small. An atc. One thing about mixed media is that if you make a mistake you can make it work for you.

Here it is
I was going to put natural twigs. I didn't like it so I ripped it off and put a white tree stamped on a tranparency.

Finally a layout :)

Not scrapping too much lately. I enjoy it so much once I start. Just the motivation to start is difficult.

All the products are available from Scraptastic South West.

Being quiet

I have sort of been very quiet on here. Had nothing much to say. I think I just wanted to hide after my surgery. Even though all results were positive.

I want to get to a place where I can be gratefull for every moment in life and not let small things overwhelm me. When this occurs I am very quiet and I don't talk to many people and retreat into my shell. So my blog has suffered.

So to make a start I thought that I just need to type something. Even though its nothing very exciting.I thought I would share a photo of my son and I. I had to buy scarves so I'm glad they are in fashion to cover up my scar. I think we look alike :)

Hopefully post again soon and include some layouts.

Long time no post.

Well my operation did get postponed again. I was so upset. Almost right at the last minute. When I was contacted with the next date I was prepared not to go in. But I did.

I did come home from my operation yesterday. So I am quite sore and stiff with bruises all over my arms and hands because I don't have good veins. I'm so glad it is over and done with. But I still have to wait for the test results to see if there is anything nasty. If there is the other thyroid will have to be taken out. So I still have a wait.

I have an excuse to shop when I am better to get some nice scarves as my neck looks awful. I'm glad I saw some in Sussans on line catologue.

I did finish my How Dare you challenge before I went in hospital.

Have a look at the challenge blog. The inspiration is amazing.

I finally have my operation date. Next Tuesday. The same week my son goes on a camp. I'm glad he is leaving on monday. It would be awful not seeing him off.

I am trying to organise my home hopefully before the operation. Mainly by reducing the amount of clutter that I have. I want to change how I live my paperwork is awful and I can never find anything. Also I have thought a lot recently on why I consume. I have always felt better when I had purchased something. Now I feel proud that I haven't. I will see how I go.

There is a use your stash challenge in the scrapbook section of Essential Baby so I hope to use up some of it. :)

I have a goal not to purchase anything until I have used a lot of my stash or give it a way.
