Monday Catch ups

Good news…my younger sister recently visited haha, that’s not news. The news is that she was nice enough to bring some clothes she made for me (Yes my sister also sews!..she’s yet to catch the quilting fever though). While she was around, I had to suspend sewing because she monopolized my sewing space. No complaints there, she was only making me some more clothes…Happy days! Continue reading “Monday Catch ups”

For your information only.

Hello friends.

I thought I should let you know why I have been putting off posting anything on the blog. Since my last post, I’ve been experiencing some challenges on the blog (I suspect the update I did recently). For instance, I was unable to reply your comments individually because I didn’t get email notifications for any comment.I’m not even 100% sure my email subscribers got any notification for that post. I’ve tried every suggestions on the support forum to no avail. Have you experienced this, how did your sort it out? (I’ll very much appreciate any help you can share on this in your comments). I’ve reached out to WordPress support and my hosting providers for their help. Hopefully that gets resolved this week. In the meantime, I have been sewing and can’t wait to share what I’ve been up to with you. Continue reading “For your information only.”

Older and Wiser…Free to be me!!!

It's my Birthday

Happy New Month Friends! You already know from my last post that it is my birthday today and thanks for all the advanced birthday wishes in your comments.

Remember how I was talking about my anticipation of this day in my last post? I was excitedly looking forward to it for the most part but there was also a looming sense of anxiety. You see, I turned 30 today and there is a lot to be grateful and excited about. When I was younger, seeing people celebrate their 30th birthday seems like such a huge deal! Like a big milestone that is supposed to be marked with a long list of achievements; a sort of benchmark if you like. As if an impressive list of achievements is the whole reason for celebrating. It’s not surprising then that as this day approached, I started making a mental list of my “achievements”. I was a bit disappointed and sad when I recounted the dreams that are currently unfulfilled or has been abandoned for some reasons.

Mondays are for catching up…

Hiya!

As always after a brief break, it seems I haven’t been here forever! What have you been up to?

2 more sleeps till the month of February 2017 is gone forever but I don’t mind, I am actually excited. Why? well when I wake up after the 2nd sleep I’ll be a year older! 1st of March is my birthday and I am happily looking forward to it. It isn’t like I have any plans besides anticipating another year of my life that is. I had planned to have a giveaway but I haven’t gotten round to making any of the things. However, I’ll probably just keep it open for the entire month and that should give me plenty of time to make some things.

Quick Catch up 

EPP

Hi guys!

My machine works now yippee! Remember that work training I mentioned in my previous post? Well it required me travelling back to my former city, I called up my regular service guy and he was happy to look at my machine if I was willing to travel down with it. Duh…of course I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity even if it meant travelling heavier than I should. Long story short my machine is up and my table should be coming in this weekend hopefully…happy days. Continue reading “Quick Catch up “

This is really annoying!

Why oh why did it have to be today of all days! It was shaping out to be a great day you know. I got the day off work and after doing some cleaning chores, I figured I could try unpacking some of my sewing stuffs. I was planning to get started on a new project, anything at all to ease the restlessness caused by lack of activity! I emptied one bag of scraps into this laundry basket with the plan to sort them and probably work on a scrappy project.

Welcome to 2017…let’s get it started!

Hi Guys, can you believe it is two entire weeks of the New Year already gone? I can’t either!! That just shows how time flies. Anyhow, let me officially wish you a happy new year and welcome you to 2017. In my last post I briefly reviewed everything that went down last year especially in my Quilting and I did refer you back to my first post from 2016 where I made a list of commitments as against resolutions. I mean there is nothing wrong with making resolutions but I found out over the years that most times the excitement ends at making the list and most often than not it remains a list with no action or result to show.  Hence, decided instead on a list of short and achievable commitments. Subsequently, in addition to the commitments I made last year which are still very valid, I am adding a commitment to be more proactive and deliberate in the actions I take towards achieving my set goals for this year. Truthfully I can’t even say I have it all planned and figured out yet but I am consciously noting what would be nice to and what must be achieved in my quilting and general life.
