Has it really been that long since I have posted? Eek! I actually have a post written that just needs the photos taken and everything typed up. I wrote it on paper one day – can’t remember what I should have been doing instead, probably listening to a seminar
I haven’t actually done any stitching for months. I’ve been so busy doing other things instead. I remembered in December that I had the first 3 books from Janny Wurt’s Alliance of Light series that I hadn’t read yet. Of course since it’s been a few years since I had read the trilogy that came before, I had to reread those too. So I worked my way through 6 books, bought the 7th in Jan and gobbled that one up too. And I picked up the last one on Sat on my way to the plane. Weekends seem to disappear on me when I have a good book, let alone a good series standing by.
I’ve also been doing some quilting. The fast way though – on a sewing machine. The reason for this is that I am planning on making 2 – 3 quilts over the next few months and raffling them off to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. I’ve signed up for one of their world experience fundraisers and I have a minimum of 2,200 pounds to raise for it. Some of that goes towards the trip costs so I’m putting in my own money and time to make quilts to help raise some money. I’ve already done one quilt top and started the second. I’ll post photos at the weekend.
Oh and I’ve started trying to organise a rubber duck race for the same cause. I’ll tell you more about that another time.
But what I mainly stopped in here for today is that I’m having a break at a conference (free wireless – yay!) and was checking up peoples blogs. Of course because I’ve been hibernating so long, I had to go and find out what a chart looked like – uh oh. Now I remember why it has been so easy not to buy any new charts for such a long time… I haven’t been looking at them Just a quick look at the new charts of HAED and I’m sunk. And I haven’t even looked up the ones I went there for yet. So far I’m sunk on: rainbow dragons (of course), as well as Felis and Tigris (surprise, surprise), and then I stopped myself from looking because, hey, I could get myself in serious trouble.
I have started another blog that is on my life in the UK. I still have a few blogs that are typed in a word document and just waiting for me to paste into wordpress and add the photos. I hope to finish those off this weekend when I get home. But if anyone wants to go and see it in its ‘work in progress’ state, with just some posts there, you can find it here. Part of the reason behind the name is I was planning on picking up a cute little red dragon ty-beanie baby and taking it everywhere as a travel toy. Still haven’t got one though (well, bought several, just sent them all off to other people), but I will definitely have one ready for my next trip.
Ok, so I’ve gone from no posting to one massive one with no photos so I’ll end this here. Fingers crossed I’ll blog again this weekend (after I’ve had lots of sleep).
