Sunday Stash – The Magazine Edition

A few years back, a friend’s Mum de-stashed a huge amount of sewing goods.  Part of that stash was a big old pile of quilting magazines.  At the time, I was not a quilter, so had absolutely no use whatsoever for them!  A lady from an online sewing group came past and picked them all up happily.  Then, once she found out I was quilting, she dropped a bunch back in to me….. Where they have happily sat atop my shelves in my … Continue Reading »

TGIFF #4 A FMQ Debut!

Just over a week ago, I had this quilt top finished, but wasn’t really a “fan” of it!  I kept looking at it and thinking it had no personality.  Then my random visit to Spotlight lead me to finding and purchasing the gorgeous bright, lime green leaf fabric for the binding, and I was egged on to get it finished.  It also helped that a lovely lady was holding a Very Hungry Caterpillar inspired market night on her FB page Lil’ Miss! Once … Continue Reading »

W.I.P. Wednesday – Another Debut!

Now that I’m a Quilter, I have been learning about all of these wonderful linked up bloggy posts!  And today’s is brought to you by Freshly Pieced! This past week has been fabulous sewing wise.  I finished up all of my custom orders for Ms Midge, so was able to find a couple of things to sew for Christmas, which I will share here on Friday – cos they’re finished!  But what surprised me most was my strange gravitation towards a project I started … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash Debut

Today I’m doing something NEW and joining in on Sunday Stash at Finding Fifth – which is actually being hosted by my friend Gemma at Pretty Bobbins this week!  Often I forget what I have sitting on my fabric shelves, even though I look at them each and every day – so it was good this afternoon to REALLY look at it and find some goodies, and think about what on earth I am going to do with them. I bought these Verona prints … Continue Reading »

Sweating my way to Health

Yesterday, I finally took the plunge and committed to doing a Bikram Yoga class.  I took the commitment one step further, and posted on Facebook my intention, so that I could not back out of it, and would have to answer to lots of people if I did!  Including the instructor, whom I happen to be friends with.  For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here’s the explanation….. This would also be classed as the  BIGGEST … Continue Reading »

To Medicate or Not to Medicate – THAT is the Question.

I have thought about writing this post for a few weeks now.  Sort of mentioned it here, but something always stops me.  I’m going to try. When I started blogging, way back here, my little “tag line” was – “From One Un-medicated Mummy to Another.”  Back then I WAS un-medicated, and still am.  But it hasn’t always been that way…. I was told by my GP back in 1999 that I was depressed.  I was 24 years old and had a little baby … Continue Reading »

My debut

I have finally bitten the proverbial bullet and am officially diving in to the world of the ”blog”. This is unheralded territory for me – but something I have been urged to do by many who seem to ”enjoy” my daily rantings on my facebook page… So where do I begin? I am thinking you (now i say ”you” in the wonderful anticipation that there may be many you’s in the near future) may want to know more about me? Well, I try … Continue Reading »
