Welcome to my rollercoaster entering the wonder city

This will be my first blog from my new apple computer. A gift from BroertjeB who is in charge of all things with a plug in our house. After he worked on my laptop (his old one) for some reason he felt the need to get me a new one, mainly because he almost fell asleep waiting for it to boot. And as a surprise it was all installed on my desk one day! I am a lucky girl.

An adventure in working on myself I took, taking up jogging pretty seriously at the start of this year, ended up in the orthopedic surgeon's office, listening to him telling me my knee is much too worn for my age and I will need a new one eventually. My challenge is to keep living with this one as long as possible. So, my life has to be adapted to what my knee can do. No jogging for instance, or skiing for that matter... This was a blow in the face for me. So after letting my head hang for a few days I decided to lift my chin and start exercising again, but to do something my knee could take. I'm taking my second spinning class tonight. The first one left me sweating and without breath so much I went straight to the shower and my bed, but it was truly sattisfying.

All this left me little time to sew. But I did finish the second part of the My small world quilt. I started working on the third part two. I love the proces if making a small part from scraps and seeing how a city is evolving onder my hands. The wonder city I call it.

Storm Signal

The last part of every school year always seems to be a very hectic time for us. Lot's of special programs like museum visits, after school parties, gifts to arrange etc. But also at work you need to finish things before the start of the vacation period. Everything just seems to come to a boil all at once.

So while sewing together some Farmers Wife blocks I realized we are in it again. So for those of you who haven't noticed. This is the Storm Signal. After the storm of course lies a lovely leisurely period to enjoy, so let's keep our chin up and face the storm. And don't forget to enjoy it....

Back to my poor neglected Farmers Wife Blocks. I've made another few. Since I am so close to the finish after literally years of sewing them together I lost my mojo a bit, but it is back!

Feeding the fabric hunger

I received my mothers day gift! I am so spoiled by my boys. I got to pick out fabrics!

Lots of texty ones of course, but also on the top right an aqua solid for putting my Farmers wife quilt together (hopefully in this decennium). I love picking fabric, so that was part of my gift, spending evenings on my iPad filling my basket and throwing things out again!

Now it's time to sew something with it!

See you soon!Pin It
