Exuses, excuses...

In the last post I moaned, whined, explained that I missed having more time to make things and post about what I've been doing.

There have been two birthdays in the house - Minky turned 14 *gasp* and the Boy about the House just turned 19 *eek*. There must be some mistake  - they were giggling, grinning and cooing in baby photos just the other day. I really want those children back, these ones aren't the ones I ordered from the catalogue! Apparently there is no warranty either - who'd a thunk?

I worked 4 days this week as well, which really eats into 'free time' - usually by the time I get home and do the family stuff that is needed to keep a household from falling into rack and ruin, I'm too tired to think, let alone lift a needle.
Last weekend I did manage to finish  this block, 

to send off for Quilts for Queensland, and I have pinned the drunkards path (that I mentioned here) so that  actually looks like it's meant to...now to find the energy to lift that needle...and send them off quick smart!

Even more sad, I have missed seeing my friends new baby...her Brother Innovis QC 1000...shocking! Hope to visit the proud Mumma soon...

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

  1. Oh I'm right there with you - I was officially back to work (after mat leave) at the beginning of the school year - I haven't stitched nor knit a stitch, nor written a post, since then :(. Just Too Exhausted. Hopefully we'll get used to it?

    mum & i were just chatting earlier & saying that each age has it problems & I definitely wouldn't mind keeping my two this little for as long as possible!
