Resting



Hey peeps! So sorry Ive not been around much recently, I can't quite believe I haven't blogged in over a week... And I was doing so well ;-)

I don't normally bore you guys with the ins and outs of my personal life, I figure you came here for the craft, and you probably stayed for the craft, and if I start blabbing about all the usual things you might leave! Work, family, friends, dating...oh the stories I could tell... hahaha! However this isn't my usual forum to do so.  But, I've been uber busy for all the wrong reasons this week and I thought I better check in and let you know I'm still here.

My Granddad had a bad fall and broke his hip on Thursday; my weekend was full of hospital visits and to-ing and fro-ing and cooking and being with family, so not a lot of room for crafting… He's doing a lot better now and should be out of hospital this week, but it was pretty scary for a while there. 

I'm totally exhausted from not sleeping, and not even getting home until late each night, but I'm hoping to have a little bit of time one night this week to reacquaint myself with the sewing machine and get some stuff done. Although I've made a pretty good dent on the old winter sewing list,  I've got quite a few Christmas presents left to make. Most of which I can't even show you because the sneaky famalam read this here blog :-) 


Since I don't think I've ever written a post without a picture (I have actually, only one, its here if you want to read it), I'll leave you with this... 


What I hope/want/need to do when I get home tonight:

  16. I'm sorry to hear this but glad it ended on an up note and that he'll be out of hospital soon. Why not make him a coming home present - a nice lap quilt! See, pressies and sewing all rolled into one guilt-free package.
