One Week in Australia.

Well,  What a  week here in Australia.
Heatwave. Fires. Tropical Cyclone. Rain and Floods. Strong Winds.

All in the one week.

I Need Help !!
Help,  with some time schedule tips.
To desiginate more time to my sewing.

 I seem to be haveing a slow period and find everything else to do but sew and post on here. I need to get busy sewing,sewing ,sewing. What I love to do.
I must say that during school holidays I had some child minding and my cupboards had a good tidy. Also went away to the Country Music Festival for 10 days to Tamworth Australias Country Music Capitol takeing the caravan and parking it on a property out on their paddock .
The festival is full on and in Tamworth they have well in excess of 55,000 visitors for the festival. A huge array of events happening. 800 country music artists and 2,200 events. Starting January 18th for a incredible 10 days. We were gone from daylight and  into the dark of night enjoying concerts and live performances and buskers lineing the main street. We were exhausted when we came home. Great fun was had by all.

Here we are parked next to the tin shed out on the paddock. It was hot 43C degrees for the first  day there.After that well into the 30C's

I am pleased to say another UFO is finished. It is my Grandaughter Kristy's quilt, she cut out and sewed choosing her own fabrics and pattern .All through 2011 and 2012 visiting me during the school holidays. It is her 2nd quilt and biggest. Kristy was 13yrs when she started her project.Now she is 14yrs. I did help a little when reverse sewing was needed sewing some straight lines when she was quilting it. I helped with the binding as only sewing in the school holidays I didn't want it to go on forever for her but nothing else. I still wanted it to be all her own creation .
Kristy is progressing very well here with us and is becomeing a happy loveing  teenager.We have great hopes for her this year at Senior school.

Turning the binding I find it easier useing a hair clasp as I sew along.

Next week I start back to my weekly quilting class and I am sure that will keep me influenced to focus on my time management .I have a new project ready to start which is a wonderful feeling.
Believe all things are possible.  Stay happy and well.

Kristy's quilt is lovely and she must be very proud of it. I think we all lose our mojo after the silly season and the wild weather doesn't help. Take care.

Life can get in the way when all we want to do is quilt :):) I know...But, you just keep plugging along...remember every step you take ..will get you closer to a finish. Even if you can only sew for 20 min. that is 20 min further than you were before :):) Hugs-S

what a talented granddaughter you have Kirsty your quilt is a work of art.
The music festival sounds like great fun but it must have been very hot in the caravan with those temperatures. Trust you are back in your stitching mode again, I had a month when I struggled it was horrid but the mojo came back to me and all is well again.

That sure was a bad week, but a fun music festival. Wonderful quilt, great fabric. I do the same thing, one hair clasp ahead of me as I sew my binding.
