I am thinking of NOT going to Patchwork Class today.

They are all still tracing out the pattern for their Dragonfly Projects that they started 3 weeks ago... meanwhile I have finished my first one (the Seahorse) and am half way through the second one...

If I go I will just sit there and yak... and I'm not in the mood for it.

So... what to do?

The kids have swimming again this afternoon... yaaa. I can hardly wait.

THAT'S IT.... unless something really interesting happens today... I'm not coming back ... until "nite nite".

SO.. I'm sitting here feeling grumpy and cry-babyish... and I've decided that the only way to snap outta this funk is to get outta the house. So... I'm going to the bloody class OK. I may be bored to tears.. or I may not! I'm hoping for the "NOT"... else I'm going to be really pissed.

I better pull finger and get moving too.... the class starts in like... 10 minutes!


I went, I laid my project out... and did nothing on it... I yakked. I had a huge Moccha and a toasted sandwich... and I feel a bit better now!
So it was worth dragging me sorry, grumpy butt out of the house.

Now I need to sort out the kids gear for swimming tonight, and dinner too... hmmmm I so havn't given that a thought till now! Yikes....

BLONDIE1: yes my Mum LOVED her Chooky Quilt... she has it on her bed.... and in the lounge on the back of the couch too ...so she can look at it!

KAREN: nice to know you are happy I am gone.... NICE. I will catch up with you eventually ! Then look out. lol

End of Day: Brylee is going up a class in swimming... she can almost swim! Well, as long as ya don't breathe *smiles*... and Griffin is doing well too... he just needs a HUGE weight around his bum cos when he tries to 'swim' his butt juts up and his legs go down... he looks hysterical! But they both love it so that's great. Much more positive this evening. nite nite.


  1. Wow, you are moving fast through your quilts! I like crocheting, and I'm thinking of teaching myself to knit, but I don't think I have the patience to quilt.

    ooooh you are a grumpy one today! I started out very bubbly but am now super grumpy too. I'm so grumpy that I think I'm going to fix food that my husband and son hate for dinner. Maybe throw my son's parrot into the oven.

    Well, I hope both our days get better.

  3. Good on you going to the class - company sounds just what you need!

  4. Well ... did it help to go out.

    The sun is shining but a cool wind here. Glorious day and I'm still procrastinating about my walk.

  5. I hope you have a good time at class, sometimes a good laugh with a few mates is all you need to make the day better. Even if the patchwork side of things is not what you expected - not your fault you are so damn quick :-).

  6. Chris I asked this several days ago on seeing your mums birthday picture WAS the chicken quilt you did for your mum? and did she like it? hope you didnt yak the other ladies ears off.YOU SHOULD consider starting a quilt class INCOME and your passion for sewing a tidy earner I should imagine, or just sewing in general.

  7. Oh dear Chris.. I'm glad you've gone.. I reckon you'll be running the classes one day. You are achieving so much more than other learners. I am going to start on a ONE BLOCK WONDER... soon..after I've finished my sister's book... Check out the books called that on Amazon. I'm off to Arthur Toye to get some more fabric!

  8. Do you mind if I ask why you have covered peoples eyes over? Just curious.

  9. Glad to know that you got back to positive thoughts before bed time. Maybe you can find a faster quilting group to go to so you aren't so bored at the classes. Glad to hear that the kiddos are learning to swim!
