have you noticed ....

Have you noticed the dearth of sewing posts on my blog?  There's good reason for it .... I'm not doing any and yes I miss it, very much - I usually do most of my sewing in the winter.  In our tiny apt. there is no spot to set up the sewing machine and all the other paraphernalia required to cut and piece.  This also explains why I'm doing so much stitching and crocheting. 

Here's an appliqued wall hanging that I made many years ago - it resides at the cabin - it was my first attempt at hand applique and now I wish I had used thread that matched each object rather than one colour for all ..... hindsight and all that. 



♪♫♪ do you want to know a secret ♪♫♪ -  do you want to know one two  -  I've begun my sixth year of blogging - I celebrated my seventieth birthday last month - no one is more surprised than I.   
 

the biggest risk is the one not taken

I have seen some really nice fold up cabinets, maybe something like that in the future.
My room is such a mess, I just need to pack half of it up and clear off the tables so I can work on them.

Happy Birthday and Blogaversary!

Isn't it a shame that our hobby requires so much space?

Happy blogaversary too.

I hope you did something special for your birthday! Sounds like you are like me and don't quite understand where all the years have gone 😉. I do like your wall hanging too; just as it is!
I've read blogs where people live in caravans ( trailers?) and still manage to make large quilts...what is their secret? Lol
