August 25 2010 Quilting Newsletter
On our return, we packed up our things and moved to another house, only 4kms away (about 10 minutes driving time), and I’m happy to say we are now at our new home, all be it surrounded by boxes, boxes and more boxes. My darling just says, if you get bored, open a box. People ask if we’ve downsized, but I like to say resized! Both of us have hobby interests and we need a bit of extra space to pursue them. I think the next move will be the downsize, hopefully not for lots of years yet.
The best thing about the agony of moving, is that I now have my own sewing studio, and a separate study. How spoilt am I? I count my blessings every day for my wonderful lifestyle.
While I was away, I posted a couple of interesting articles on my quilting site. The first was a review for a great patchwork book making quilts using Jelly Rolls. Here’s the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art3153.asp
The other article was a collection of free and not so free patterns and blocks for the Traditional and not so traditional Log Cabin Block. Here’s the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art10165.asp
