It's been a while!!

Time, that is "days and months" have disappeared rather rapidly. Even my daughter is worried at the pace of time.

Family changes have been happening this year - Our son has moved out into his own unit. This was a big thing and hard for me as his time with us seemed so short, considering his first 6 years were in an orphanage. During the past school holidays hubby and son were driving together, to go walking on Bluff Knoll in the Stirling Ranges, and had a car accident on the way. The car was a write-off, but they walked away no injuries, but a big lesson for our son, yes, he was driving, still on his "L's".

For us the ornamtental cherry blossom is once again covering the trees; the ewes are having lambs; and we're bottle feeding one lamb, rejected by it's mother; we're starting to get warmer days, which I love as you feel the warmth right into your bones.

My crafting days have been limited with my part-time chaplaincy work. So I've not been as productive as I once was. However, I participated in a CQ Asian Challenge on the yahoo gruop CQ4Newbies. I was excited to tie for first place with this block.

Gerry on "Block Talk" has done a very helpful critique on my block, and so I will be working on it to make some changes.

I can't guarantee when I'll post again. But I can tell you we will be away on holidays at the end of the year, visiting Bali, Paris, America, London, Malta, Cyprus, Egpyt, Israel and the Philippines. This trip is to take our daughter back to her birth country for a visit.


  1. Love your block. Gerry always has great insight. Good travels!

  2. Hello Susan! I was so pleased to see your comment on my blog and thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I do appreciate each day I can use my needle and that is what I focus on. I also am grateful I learned to crochet as that is easier on my eyes. There is a reason for everything in life and I will get through this!

    I love your CQ block and congratulations on winning.

    Your travels are going to take you around the world and back by the sounds of it. Will you be gone a very long time? I am sure it will be priceless for you to be able to visit your daughter's birth country.

    Hugs from Holland ~
