I have finished the first of the five S.I.T. swap items, I hope the girls like them ! I had so much fun making them. This is the only thing I have made lately. I have been applying for a job and going on school camps so I have had no free days off. I have been madly making these in between the rest of my committments. I love owls and made this one a bit quirkier than in the pattern. His chest feathers are going sideways, the eyes are a bit more "dizzy". Robyn

I have been quiet on my blog lately because I have been organising my mothers 80th birthday. It was a lot of hard work and preparation but I have to say it was worth all the effort. The day for my mum's birthday, and party, was yesterday (12th February). It was one of the most uplifting and enjoyable days I have had in a very long time. Many of mum's friends have known her longer than we have been alive and it was a pleasure to speak to every one of them. From all different walks of life and all with so much experience in life it was wonderful to sit and listen to their memories of their lives. I also had the chance to catch up with cousins and second cousins that I haven't seen for a while. It was like we had only spoken yesterday, the years we had not seen each other just dropped away and laughed and joked together for what seemed like hours. Anyway, now I get to concentrate on making a name tag and some sample swaps for S.I.T. in March - I just have to get my sewing room back together!!! Robyn

I work as a special education teacher and today I loved watching the complete joy of some of my students as they painted with some beautiful bright colours using a stencil they had made. The teacher was so good with them and rejoiced wuth them in their complete excitement as they painted. Sometimes I am so apathetic about the beautiful choices we have in fabric these days. Today changed my perspective towards the choices of colours available out there.
