Shhhh cross your fingers

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Hello ladies,

I’m still alive, thank you for asking. Despite all good intentions things have been a little lax over here this year. Being at home and still unemployed, the days seem to run away with themselves. I’m always busy (just don’t ask me what I’ve been doing!). Enjoying life I guess.

I’ve been spending masses of time knocking the heck out of my garden – it’s been fabulous and we’ve had some gorgeously unseasonable weather. I would show you a picture, but unfortunately it is now covered by snow again. There is something immeasurably soothing and calming about pottering in the garden. I had almost forgotten. It has been a few years since I’ve had either the time or the energy. I hope that my new balanced life will be maintained once I hit the workforce again. Simple pleasures really are the best.

I have had a couple of interviews and there is hope of a rather interesting job on the horizon. I will say no more, I don’t want to jinx anything, but it would be nice…..(sshhh cross your fingers for me!)

Here is one of the recent fruits of my labours….

This is my Sarah Fielke Through the Rabbit Hole BOM at the end of Month 3. This is soooo different from anything I’ve done before – and hugely exciting – even if the fifteen billion little leaves did nearly do my ‘ed in. Next month we are doing a border of paper pieced little houses – utterly charming. I can’t wait!

Have a good weekend my friends

Helen

    Ooooh, your Down the Rabbit Hole center is beautiful! I love the colors you’ve chosen! It sounds like you’re enjoying your time off. I would love to have a few months off — just to get caught up on housecleaning, if nothing else! Crossing fingers for your job interview!

    As usual, anytime you post a photo of something you’ve created, I nearly gasp at how pretty it is. The colors and details in this one are gorgeous. I’m glad you’ve been enjoying some time at home, working in your garden and being creative. I look forward to reading what’s next, dear Helen. xoxo
