I've had trouble finding words to write lately. I think it's just a general tiredness that has infected my life lately and permeated into my blogging life too. I dare say the Christchurch earthquake has something to do with it. So to try and find my blogging mojo again I've decided to go back to how I originally envisioned this blog. Just a little story about my little life. Written for me, my family and my kids and anyone who's interested.
When I started a web log I saw this as a good way to keep a diary, a diary with pictures! My kids can look back at it one day and see what their life was like, what my life was like. My family overseas can read it and keep current with what I'm up to. And of course, anyone else who is interested can read along too.
So in that spirit, I'm not going to worry about writing something fun or informative, or taking pictures of something beautiful, I'm just going to write about what I'm doing, right now, today.
Which is quilting. I'm making bias strips for my applique panel in the centre of my big blue and white quilt. It's the first time I've used bias press bars (borrowed from a friend - thanks!) and I like them. Even my falling-apart iron can't stuff them up. I bought a trestle table a little while ago and having that extra surface has allowed me to get rid of my clunky, annoying ironing board and just press my small bits on a old, folded towel.
Meanwhile, outside Hubby is building a deck. What with having the shed extension and veranda finished he's got all enthusiastic - but who am I to complain? It will get us up and out of the mud this winter. Fantastic!
And what are the kids up to? Nothing much. Just playing in the mud, like all good kids should do. They need to get in as much outdoor play as they can because the weather in changing, Autumn is on it's way.
