My sewing room has begun to be a bit of a cat magnet in the late afternoon these days as the summer sun turns into autumn sunshine with not much heat in her rays. The cats want to soak up as much as they can because like us they know it's on it's way out for the season. The nights have begun to be a bit chilly and on these days I am grateful that we decided to install reverse cycle air conditioning a few months back because now with just the flick of a switch we have warmth. No more lighting fires, no more dust and no more spiders !
When the weather begins to turn it makes me feel like baking. Not sure why, maybe it's the need for comfort food. I decided it had been ages since I had made a Raspberry Shortcake Slice. So I grabbed my homemade raspberry jam and set to work.
It was divine. I had forgotten how lovely it is.
Have you begun to think about Easter? I found these adorable jars in our local Woolworths store - Aren't they lovely? They would lovely holding just about anything. I have a yellow one which holds buttons in my sewing room.
Yesterday I released a BRAND NEW pattern Lucious Lucey" named after a lovely friend "Narelle".
It is a 54 1/2" square quilt and is super easy to put together.
How about we have a give away for a pattern of "Lucious Lucey"? Simply comment on this post and I'll draw a winner out this time tomorrow.
Life is so unpredictable isn't it, I am such a planner so it's hard for me not to plan ...... Both my hubby and I have very close friends that have faced major health issues in the past year or so, my hubby's dear friend has a very big battle on his hands currently.
This makes you think about your own mortality ....... Over dinner on date night - Friday night - I asked hubby what he would do with his life if he had no financial concerns, no concerns about the kids who have their own lives, no worries about pleasing or doing what others want you to do ...... We both thought about it a lot and both came up with a clear answer. It makes you dig down deep into your heart and think about what you truly want - It might surprise you try it ....... You might be shocked about what you find out about yourself.
