We often take our family for granted until they are no longer there.  I would love to be able to pick up the phone and talk to my mum again.  Just to say hello and talk about the weather and what everyone is doing.  Nothing world shattering - just the trivial things from everyday life.  I miss her.

The world seems to be in such a state of turmoil and change and doom and gloom. 

Sewing helps me cope with whatever life throws at me.  As long as I can find some time each day to do some stitching, I feel more positive about the future.  I look at the handmade quilt I have pulled over my knees to warm my toes and adjust the cushion behind my back that was a gift from a friend.  I pick up the needlecase I made and get out my favourite scissors with the silk ribbon scissorkeep I stitched, hanging from them.  I look to see if there are some pins in the pin cushion of my couch clutter controller that sits on the arm of my chair and I am ready to sew for a while.

What gets you into the sewing groove?

Till next time

Declutter or Sew?

I have been in the mood to declutter and decided the 'whatnot' in the office was my next victim!  (Before photo not included as it was too embarrassing)



Can we spell procrastination?  Hopefully, I can now concentrate on the pile of UFO's that I want to finish by the end of the year.

Till next time, Tasha

Blah, blah, blah

Do you ever have one of those days where you feel like you are chasing your tail? 

Therese and I have been working on a joint project and I have to say it is looking fabulous!

I am in awe of my mother.  She is working on several projects at the moment and still doubts her creative talent.  I would be happy if I had a quarter of her abilities. 

This sneak preview is for a new BOM design - don't the colours look gorgeous?

Our First Post

Woo hoo!  We have joined the blogging revolution.  I am dragging my mother, Therese, kicking and screaming into the 21st century. 

We will endeavour to post a couple of times a week with sneak previews of new designs, both successful and unsuccessful ones!  Nothing like a bit of reverse sewing - we are both experts at it.

Till next time, Tasha
