We’ve been back from our holiday in Australia a week, and not a stitch of sewing has been done. That’s not to say I haven’t been busy, though. The suitcases have finally been emptied and carried back upstairs to our little loft. It may be Spring here but the weather has been wet and cold, so that means winter cooking, as far as I’m concerned. So I’ve cooked up a big pot of pumpkin soup one day, flavoured with bacon and a touch of curry powder. Then I had a beef casserole simmering away in the crock pot, I do love winter comfort food. And most importantly, we had a big day out with friends to celebrate Robin (almost) turning 70. His actual birthday is on Tuesday, so maybe we will squeeze another celebration or two into the week.
Happy 70th Birthday to Robin
The only thing remotely like sewing I’ve done is to pin some sashing strips onto my Australian blocks. I know, some of you don’t bother to pin, but I really feel the need to. When I finally get to sit at the sewing machine I can get started on these blocks, or maybe even use them as leaders and enders.

Sadly, sitting at my sewing machine will have to wait as we are going away on a caravan trip for the next two weeks. I’ll have to sort out some hand stitching to take with me.
