been doing some creating

a friends daughter is having her year 12 formal so I was lucky enough to make her corsage this is not a very good pic but you get the idea and she loves it so that is all that matters I also did the button hole flower for her partner  ,I have been doing a little hand quilting and a bit of planning for a new quilt I would like to make . hope you are all getting to play with something fun hugs Beth

I think it's time I got back into the swing of things . I have been quiet for to long so I am going to try and post more and also see and quilt more . I saw an idea I think it was on YouTube about using a oven liner/BBQ mat on your sewing machine bed to make the quilt glide easer so a lovely friend got me one and I have stuck it in place with painters tape . The practice piece looks good so I am going to try and get Sebastian's quilt quilted this week  wish me luck

lost mojo

I am finding this year very stressful as things beyond my control  have been having a rather nasty affect on my general health .I have developed high blood pressure and the migraines I had as a child have made a come back ,I find myself wishing I had the energy to sew I have so many projects I could work on but just feel blocked .I hope  this will be a passing thing and as I resolve the stress in my life that the mojo comes back .I will leave you with a pic I took a few months ago in my friend Becs beautiful garden.
