It has taken longer than I expected to try and slot back into everyday life and I still feel a little like a fish out of water. The flight home was long and arduous and even before the midway point I was promising myself that I would never leave Australia again ... although I am sure that these emotions will pass with time! Besides ... once we win the lottery we will be able to fly first class ... and it will be me that the flight attendant is talking to when they announce that "those in Premiere Class may choose their own seat back position, however, they will need to store their ottoman for decent" (what an inconvenience!!!!)
It has also taken me longer to post as I have not had anything show until now. I have been flat out working on a project that I insanely agreed to while we were away which needs to be finished by the end of the month ...
How many days are there again until December?
This is my little quilt for the DQS. This also needs to be finished by the end of the month ... as you can see it will be a little late I hope that the recipient will forgive me.
My swap partner noted a dislike of a specific colour in her profile. I never realised how much I use this colour ... it has been difficult.
I never got to do very much sewing on our trip. I had imagined that I would have gotten a lot of hand piecing done while we were driving ... however, I never realised that my role during the driving phases would involve quite so many panic attacks! It is quite hard to hold a needle and sew a straight line when you are breathing into a paper bag ;).
I did however manage to draw up plans for 6 new quilts and many more ideas for others ... so it would seem that 2009 is going to be a busy year!!!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
PS. When I collected the mail yesterday I was very pleased to see my new copy of Quilters Companion waiting for me ... and look what I found on the last page ....
Thats me listed beside my very cool and tallented friend Tracey!!!!! I was so excited I almost wet myself! ... as you can see there is not a lot of excitement in my life! :)
