I'm in between.
School holidays are over {{breathe out}}
Kindy and School has begun {{breathe out}}

January was full of the unexpected.
There was sunshine and sewing {{breathe out}}
there was teenage boy dramas {{breathe in}}
there was lots of swimming and lots of flowers in the garden {{breathe out}}
We gained a teenager to the family
Jobs were won and lost {{breathe in}}
But we had a lot of fun meal times round the dinner table {{breathe out}}

Last night I started two new knitting projects,
I have eight quilts I want to start
and I think I want to turn this cute fabric into dresdens like this genius quilter.
It's the season for starting things. The start of the year all shiny and new.

Soon I will start studying.
It's a big new step for me. I'm waiting for the student loan to come through.
Waiting for all the ducks to be in a row.
It's kinda a no-man's zone of time between the full on mothering of the school holidays
and beginning almost full time study.

I kept our Christmas wreath hanging because I love it so much.
I'm sure we are going to need a bit of happy this year.

Things might not turn out like we've planned, like this granny square
which I pulled down to knit Annie a jumper.
It's different but it is ok.

Let's just keep breathing in and out and the year will pass by.
It's all ok really.

    Those deconstructed dresdens are giving me ideas.....I can see them on a plain background and looking like petals dropping from flowers......what do you think?

I just keep hearing that refrain from fun.'s song, "Carry On", and just try to keep on carrying on. ;) Congrats on heading back to school. I'd love to do that, don't know if I'm brave enough!

  10. It’s not really in close proximity to being strongly related the details, nevertheless my wife just
    passed plus found the word writer on the watch's screen. In the sight, your woman definitely witnessed booger, and also asked the reason why I'm reading in relation to boogers.
    I haven’t laughed so faithfully using
    some 2 or 3 weeks.
