Hello long weekend...


Ahh the rain has arrived, the fire is smouldering and the kids have contact till late afternoon. Hubby is meeting his daughter somewhere along the Bylong Way to pick up his grandsons tablets, so he will be gone for a while too, he took Mr 12 (grandson) with him for the early morning drove. Ive just dropped Miss 15 at the Painted Horse Cafe in Sofala where she now works. Am I alone? Afraid not, I have Miss 12 who arrived yesterday morning staying with us for the long weekend.
She is happy to watch movies whilst I catch up with blogs and on my third cuppa this morning.


I finally caved and bought the latest and last two issues of Laine Magazine. I have been following the magazine on Instagram and really enjoy their posst and stories. Therefore I'm planning on sitting and having a good read before lunch and maybe after too. The issues have soo many lovely projects, and the photography is amazing. 


Life has been busy of late with fostering and doesn't leave much time for crafting. I have only managed to knit a few rows each night of my new knitting project (insert sad face). I bought the wool a while ago and its a chunky soft knit, cant wait to wear it, oops I mean finish it.

I spend a lot of time working on Lost in Play now, painting, designing graphics, visiting preschools etc... and that equates to no sewing....and don't get me started on my sewing mojo...she has left the building!!!!
 When I went to our sewing group the other week, it took me ages before I pulled out something to sew and then I had a sore thumb, poor thing not used to epp'n anymore... So....I need to allocate at least 20 mins a day to sew, its my first love and I've been missing her greatly..........will take me 20 mins to sort out work to work on ...soo many WIPs hahahaha...

  3. Be greedy and try for half an hour - once you have stuff sorted you will make progress.

  4. lots going on.... yes I think the trick is often just allocating a bit of time to sew... even 10 minutes just to zone out...
