Oops ... I did it again! Absent blogger :(

I feel like I'm in a time warp lately. I wake up and the whole day stretches before me. I go to bed and a week has gone! How does that happen? And last week was a year - 12 whole months - since I broke my shoulder ... now that time has passed by very very quickly.

In that year, a lot has happened - DH retired, we left London and bought our forever home in Wales. I now commute to London - stay in a hotel for 3 nights - work in the week, come home at weekends. Family time has become very precious; we are having so many fun times. And this weekend was no exception. On Friday, we went to see Aunty G and took her to lunch for her birthday. I made her a Dresden Plate cushion:

On Saturday, we had a houseful and I made pudding:

DH created a wonderful meal of roast pork with all the trimmings - here we all are tucking in:

And yesterday and today, I have been quilting! DH and I basted our first quilt in a year and I set about free motion quilting it. I'm certainly not as fast as I was and I can tell you my little shoulder is throbbing today. But, oh what fun :) It's good to be back:

Hope you all had a happy weekend. Back to work tomorrow. I tidied up my sewing room so that I can get straight to it on Friday when I get home:


  1. I love your quilting!
    It looks so perfect!
    There fabrics you use is cute and if I'm lucky I will find it in my sewingroom too!
    Take care and be home safe on friday!

  2. Darling cushion! And I'm so happy to see you working on a quilt. I always think, " Perfect isn't flawless. Perfect is finished." Looks like you will have another perfect quilt!

  3. We had a lovely week end thank you. Doesn't time just fly! Spring has sprung here finally.
    Enjoy your week. Lovely Dresden pillow : )

  4. No! A whole year?!? Take care of that shoulder.

  5. Beautiful pillow. And that bread pudding looks so tasty!!

  6. So glad to see you were able to get back to quilting after a year away from it because of your shoulder injury. Looks fabulous and nice to see you putting on that red polka dot binding to finish it up! The pillow is super sweet as well. You may not have time to blog as much, but still so nice to see what you are up to when you get a chance, my friend. Nice to see you happily spending time with your family for that scrumptious meal!!!
