My name is Charlotte, sometimes known as Ms Lottie, occasionally as The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady. This is my blog, where you'll find me writing a lot about my quilting and textile arts and a little about my family's life in a small seaside town in New Zealand. Haere mai!

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!
