I'm Back!

It is has been a while, a distressing while.

I Young in NSW. I have lived here before, some 11 years ago...didn't like it

I moved to help out my oldest daughter, Daisy Diddlemouse with her babies, Rory the little golden princess (4) and the twin zeitgeists, Fraser and Oscar(2).

I have, however, sewn up a storm since I have been here.

I am going to try and record what I have done since moving here in January 2012, create a photo journal of what I do have, describe the quilts I didn't photograph but gave away and start recording my new beginnings.

I have decided its time to stop the guilt trip my life has been...I am taking a new tack....

Stop the perfect!!!!

Now I don't mean that I am perfect....I am so not....but I wish I was and punish myself mercilessly for all the things I do, sew and say that are not all know what I mean...and of course with no one reading this I can be as honest as I want. being not perfect.

To finishing stuff rather than bemoaning not having the perfect stuff to finish it.

To trying new things...machine quilting without aforementioned guilt about not doing so as I lack perfection.
To sewing something every day.
To giving things away and knowing I made someone smile (perhaps with indulgence at my less than perfect gift and their needing to accept so as not to hurt my feelings).
To letting myself enjoy mistakes.
To getting a few little bits together ( I am thinking 200 items) ready to do a craft market somewhere (a necessity to relieve my burgeoning sewing room of perfect bits to be turned into imperfect joy).
To reevaluating my career and what I want to do for the last fifteen years of my working life.

To taking and posting pics of very thing I make and perhaps write a tutorial or two

To it!
