We are now in April...the leaves are falling from my trees and the year is whizzing by. This week has seen the submission of a major assignment (phew) and part of my working week covering my manager who was having some well deserved leave whilst addressing some very challenging client behaviours. Glad it is all over.
Last weekend at Nundle seems a loooong time ago! Seems like the builder will start levelling floors in the new home after the Easter break...it will be nice to see it start.
Part of the GDITC was a pincushion swap from one of Sue Daley's patterns. Mine was a six pointed star...I was happy with it...but I will never know what the recipient thought...not a word or acknowledgment so I will never know where it ended up or if they liked it. Awful really as you go to all that trouble and you never see or know if it was appreciated or not. Oh well....you don't participate in swaps for accolades, but it is nice to be acknowledged. Didn't our Mums teach us to say thankyou?
I received this lovely apple core pincushion from Maree! I have met Maree before and have long been blogging buddies...so it was great to receive this pincushion and some lovely pins from her. Thankyou, it is perfect and will be a reminder of Maree & GDITC 2012 whenever I use it!
Little else of note has happened this week, some pruning in readiness for the house to be listed for sale, and that ongoing declutter.
But yesterday I decided to play with the soul searching quilt...I had red strips ready( I love red), but could not get "into" it...so I swapped for pink instead...loving this! I did not realise how much I really do love pink...maybe that is part of the soul searching journey????
Last night was Lea's daughters 21st birthday party...themed with songs from our childhood. I hate fancy dress so was in a quandary...here I am with a Blues Brother, Mouseketeer and me...as Sadie the Cleaning Lady (complete with original '45 from 1968...am I old or what!). Funny.
Missing all the fun of the Nundle crowd...glad they are home safely!
