Uni starts next week, all being well.
Reuben is at school and Annie is going to kindy three mornings a week.
I've been busy training a sweet boy called Robbie to take over my day-job.
In the meantime my head has been full of plans.
One of them is to make a quilt for Cam.
I can't stop thinking about her and praying for her.
She's just had a big surgery. The biggest really.
If you would like to send me a 5" square with your name stitched or written down the centre
I've used 5000 metres of cotton. Wow.
Cheaper than therapy that's all I can say.
I've been working on a prototype of a drawstring bag
with a construction I think is genius.
I've almost perfected it and then I'll share it with you.
I used every last 2 1/2" square leftover from the Scrappy Trip Along quilt,
I made an auxilary quilt, two giant cushions and two drawstring bags.
It was such a great feeling to actually use them up.
I've been on a pillow making run lately.
The kids love them. Look at Reuben's bed doesn't it look amazing?
He styles it himself. (I didn't make the union jack, that was given to me
and liberated by Reuben for his bed)
It's six years today since Sally died.
I still miss her like it was just last week.
Good friend's are irreplaceable.
Relationships are important.
I wish I could bake cookies for her and have her rubbish my coffee again.
I wish she could tell me to get my eyebrows waxed and berate me about my clothes.
Just once. Just for a moment.
Yesterday I went on a thrifting adventure with James
and we found some great treasures.
The bestest brightest happiest yellow blanket was one of them.
Isn't it great?
I do feel like I'm still waiting for the year to begin
but I'm getting a lot of projects sorted in the meantime.
