There are times when life work gets in the way of any crafting- it's been a busy time at work and so when I get home I've found it a bit hard to focus on stitching.  I have been popping in to some of the blogs to see what everyone is up to- but when you don't have anything finished to show, you may (as I have) let the time slip away without blogging.  But I'm looking ahead to getting back into it and onto some projects that are languishing in my craft bag!
My copy of the New Zealand Quilter magazine arrived in the mail the other day and there was Deb's blog The Angel and The Pukeko mentioned on the page where they profile different web addresses.  What a thrill that will be for her.  I have found another quilt pattern to add to my dream list- papercut blocks in batik to applique onto a black background- it looks stunning and the first block was in this issue.  Since the magazine comes out quarterly it gives me time to plan...
I also managed to get along to the monthly get together of the local bobbin lace group ( I have been missing many meetings of late) so will look towards getting a new project started there too.

  1. Oh good, my magazine will be arriving soon, they have some lovely quilts in it. Sometimes I feel that it's better to take a step back from blogs and blogging, that way you can concentrate on stitching or making something.
