This blog is a bit of a ramble through my life. There's a lot about quilting and textile arts, a sprinkle of my family life and some of my thoughts and ponderings. We currently live aboard an old wooden 1945 Navy boat, called MV Cerego, so you'll find me writing about that too. Welcome aboard!

Home.

I just tried to glue-baste an applique heart with sewing machine oil.  Yesterday I left the bath running and Hubby found it about five centimetres from overflowing.  The day before that I went out for four hours and left a pot of soup simmering on the stove (it was getting dry but thankfully not smoking!)

I blaming it on jet lag.

But I only went to Brisbane in Australia, or 'hopped across the ditch' as we Kiwi's call it.

So, when I have my head a little more around being home, I'll give you all a bit more of an update.  But right now I have to go wash some sewing machine oil out of my fabric!

  4. Ummmm.....have to admit to having done some of that - like the day I left the eggs to hard boil for lunch. I didn't know they would explode like tiny bombs all over the kitchen!

  8. I'm hoping that these following words will ring true-- "things can only get better"! Hoping you're back to 'normal' soon and someone else got to clean out the soup pot!
