I need a Distraction

 oohhhhhhh I am stretched about as far as I go....

An older cousin took his own life last weekend...
it is a sad event....
it is also long drawn out process...
Very little space for that emotion to sit ….
Tuesday he will go to rest . 
Perspective takes a while...
and 
it is sad.

*****
And
 I have this smell, sort of pervading stink in the corner of my new home in MY bedroom 
&
 I cannot locate it to eradicate it.
I have a high sense of smell... 
could have been a canary in a mine type of sense..

Lucky as I get to smell flowers & French perfume in a wonderful way.
It is inherited....my Dad would stand with fridge door open & say " Something is OFF in here" and Mum would despair because her sense of smell was nowhere like that. 
He would taste butter in the same way... this is off, it's tainted...
I do the same...

****
PLUS I haven't settle into my new spaces yet, takes time...
Now I want to have this massive cull....not sure where that fits....but driving back yesterday I thought I am going to get into those sample & supply boxes & clear it out......

I just moved & I do clean & cull a lot these days...so what will be done to warrant a cull I have no idea...but somehow I look forward to it..that process.
But one should not waste this turning point perhaps....
I have this urge to get out paper & pencil & streamline designing ….
Might not work of course....
but there is a shift in my thinking..
That I love & it's fun !
Maybe I will go to Christmas Shop & have a coffee 
****

The chest infection may well have finally gone....so some things are looking up.
****
I am not doing an event at end of November as previously planned.
****
So we have STUFF to play with.
Onto the website it is going.... slowish process.
Brooches are half done & these happy happy decorations will follow .

Isn't it so happy.!!!
I am thinking of a sale for this …
I'll wait until all is under control ( LOL) & send a newsletter & do a blog to tell you all.

Now to shower & sort out my day !!! LOL

Enjoy Each Day

©
 Decorating..
These star deer are super sizes ...I love them !

I love this design....
The robin in a pear tree....
Here I have used it as a tag on a small white box...
which could just hold homemade cookies ( but my box doesn't )

Well the week has been a different one with the sudden passing of  cousin and the flow on from such sad events.....
Today though I have decided to reflect on this in a different light....
&
 after a stupid night's sleep get back to making sense of my own world.
After the moving locations for me, which was just a month ago....and this, I think it is a sign ???
So ….. enjoy each day ….

Christmas pockets & other things

©
I have added more Christmas pockets that include a small layout for the pocket...stitchery... & button.
There are 2 pockets per set....$10 includes postage
Make them on fabric & stitch ...add ribbons/ tape /twine to hang...or perhaps peg them in a row on string ?
or
make them in felt....nice wool blend felt...( Marg Low Designs sells a decent stash of colours & quality)
stitch the designs ...same as other with fabric...

Christmas Decorations have been carded as 4 just because !!! well they do look pretty $20 includes postage

Cello bags of decorations.... they have been mailed to a shop....in Bathurst... Anni Downes…
Anni is off to Houston for the Spring Quilt Market....
&
so is Lisa from Max & Louise....
It is a busy busy time to get that all ready & actually get on plane & go.

****
That reminded me, thinking of a conversation the other day with using You Tube to learn … wow I thought long way ...we have come.
Then I had another think....
You know when a high profile designer arrives at your local quilt store, to do a class with ( usually her ) 
her designs & her unique way of pulling it all together....and you know you get instruction from the designer right in front of you....you can ask questions, make comments & generally enjoy the creative persons company.
Beats a you tube I would think...…
****
When I began we had so few designers...
one day designers ( Kindred Spirits ) arrived from USA & classes were offered & it was magic....just to be included in their world, surrounded by their delicious samples that we could actually touch...
Nothing has changed in respect to creative people who make the creative world sing in many ways...

Love the red Berries


I do love red berries to use as a real pop of colour when I decorate with the hand painted happy scalloped decorations I design.
