I'm so glad you've waited till today to pop in.....as you probably know, I've been travelling and you would have missed me if you'd come a day or two earlier!
Let me put the kettle on while you make yourself comfortable...it's a bit blowy outdoors even though the sun's shining, so I think the Naya's the best place to sit. I have some fruit loaf that I've taken out of the freezer...I do hope it's ok...it certainly was before it went IN.
I have just about got over my jet lag, which is pretty good for me...it usually lasts much longer travelling east....and yes, I had a great time thank you. It was so good meeting up with RINDA, DEB, CARRIE and DEBBIE...it's a great feeling talking to people who actually 'get' what blogging is all about and what I DO with all that paper! It's something I miss here...do you have the same problem where you live?
In the course of all that talking, I made the decision (finally!) to start Project Life...it's something I have been thinking about since it's launch. I've always talked myself out of it; not at all convinced that it was 'proper' scrapbooking, but after watching from the sidelines I think it may suit my lifestyle at the moment. I often find it difficult to find time to scrapbook, but I really want to keep those memories...so have decided to use PL as my main way of keeping them as they happen.....and when I have the time, I'll make scrapbook pages using all the older photographs still waiting to see the light of day!
So I bought an album....
.....and some (!) supplies and have made a start.....
I must confess to getting the photographs I wanted to use in the right orientations and sizes making my head hurt, but once that was done I enjoyed the process. Are you taking part in PL, or do you just watch from the sidelines, as I did?
Oh...I must tell you...I have received my first quilt block (as part of FIONA's FRIENDSHIP QUILT initiative) from lovely DEB (have you noticed there seem to be a lot of Deb's who blog?!)
Of course, she had also included a pretty tag and bookmark, which was very kind of her. I'm looking forward to receiving the others...but am wondering just how I'll ever manage to make a quilt with them!...do YOU sew, or are you a complete novice like me?
You might remember that I was a bit worried about going so far away when my dad hasn't been so well...the good news is that mum feels he has had a better week, so I'm pleased about that....I do hope your own family are well.
Well, I know you have a few more stops to make to catch up with people, so I'll let you go...do come back next time though; it's been a lovely catch up!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
