Absent

Goodness, two weeks have flown by since I last posted. I hadn't intended to be so slack, but have been absorbed by other things. No sooner had I come home after the christmas festivities, than I was off again...back 'up country' (as we say down here in the far south west) for a party to celebrate my Uncle's 80th Birthday, which was great fun.

I did come home with a vast new fabric stash, courtesy of my sister (thanks a million, G) who had a bit of a clearout of her workroom. This is only a small selection.....


And a bit more detail here - I love these aqua seaside colours....


I have two large bin bags full, and most of the fabric is furnishing weight, so will be great for bags and cushions and more....I need some ideas! Aside from this, nothing much has been happening (except in my head!), which is partly why I haven't blogged. I am distracted by the need to do my accounts and file my tax return, the deadline is marching ever closer. And I am procrastinating, it's my middle name. Other things seem far more interesting...like clearing the clutter that has accumulated in piles around me. Making space, both physically and mentally, for new things, for more creativity. Still, I always respond to a deadline, So I know I'll get there!!

The days have also been gloomy, grey and wet. Very, very wet, so this little glimpse of sunshine on the sea was very welcome yesterday. It didn't last, but it was enough to lift the spirits.


I'm also distracted by all the blogging everyone else is doing, lots of exciting things here, there and everywhere!
