I *am* still sewing (a bit)

Readers who have followed me over from my old sewing blog are probably wondering where all the sewing has gone!

So, just to prove that I haven’t abandoned the needle altogether, here’s some evidence:

pink 9 patches

These are regular nine patches waiting to be sliced up and spun around and turned into disappearing nine patch blocks like these:

I know, it’s not a lot, but still!!

I think I only have so much creative energy, and just lately that energy has been directed towards food – like making homemade beefstock:

And learning about nutrition with the boys, who have done a couple more months on their produce calendars. Waif’s:

I am sure my sewing flame will be re-ignited soon and I will have some exciting projects to share 🙂

    Creativity comes in all different ways. Cooking is one of them and making your own homemade broth is great. Much better than the stuff in the stores that’s loaded with chemicals and who knows what.

    For someone who doesn’t quilt (me!), it looks like a lot of work accomplished! Someday I would love to learn to sew like you do. And it looks like your cooking is something for me to aspire to as well! 🙂

    Very pretty fabrics, this will look wonderful! I don’t know how you find ANY time to sew. I didn’t get much done while actively involved in the boys’ learning. A wee bit of time when they went to bed, that was it! And it was also long before blogging!

    Those 9 patches are gorgeous. Loving those fabrics.

    Can you send some of that beef stock this way please.


I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
