I have had another week where I was out of action. Well mostly out of action. I still had to supervise home schooling 3 days each week. I have to say it is a bit of a struggle when you... Continue reading

BEFORE I took on the role of home teacher I had taken on the role of the Secretary of the Coochiemudlo Artisan's Collective. By the time all the home schooling stuff had started it was too late to back out... Continue reading

The past month has been difficult but I hope I am coming out the other side. Home Schooling starts this week and I must say I am worried about it. It is the 'thinking about everything that could go wrong'... Continue reading

The last embroidery for the quilt is ready to go. The combi block is going into a mug bag, and the Medici embroidery is driving me mad. So much so that I have decided to stitch the one I found... Continue reading
