Fun in my fabric world....

November almost gone!

When did that happen?
Post wedding life has flown by, back to work, back to "normality"....whatever that may be?
The newlyweds are back and now just happy being married....nice, huh?
My work remains something that consumes far too much of my sewing time, not really how I want it, but I enjoy my current role and know that it will not be forever. After two years in contract roles I have secured a permanent position which will give my mind a rest in the current fiscal environment. Whilst I am never without work, security of a position just gives a sense of surety. I am very sad to be leaving my current role, but am returning to my previous contract position which I enjoyed after Christmas. Ho Ho Ho...and off I go!
I had a fabulous weekend away with friends at Middlebrook Station near Scone. 
It was great fun!
Or as I named it...Stitch, Bitch and Bubbles...my work colleagues just don't really get it!
But stitching was achieved, I worked on this slowly growing favourite...
which the locals even admired!
Some more clams were created for the newlyweds.
It was just lovely to get away with these dearest of friends and admire the countryside.
Now I am working toward Christmas...fun!
Hope you are well wherever you are!

It was a great weekend, seems like ages ago already. I hope you get some more time for relaxation and stitching with your work changes. Absolutely love the clamshells.

I like the idea that we’re both starting new jobs together.

Your sewing prowess always thrills me- both the clams and your other( very colourful ) project look fantastic.

I hate this time of year for how fast we seem to hurtle towards the end. Never enough time to get everything done that I want to do!
