I am now feeling much fitter and am working hard with a physio to get the fingers moving again.
I have been inspired by a number of things to get my sewing machine up and running again. Firstly I had a lovely wee trip to Dublin for a week with the family and called in at the Kildare village shopping outlet...all you girls who like to shop should give that a wee go!! I got lovely Cath Kidston fabric at 7 euro a meter, am actually kicking myself that I did not buy more of it..calls for another wee trip down!!
I also got the chance, with map in hand and hubby and two teenage sons dragging behind!! to visit The Cloth House...lovely fabric shop..not cheap, but bought small amounts that will go far when mixed in with some other pieces.
My best friend then came back from America with a lovely stash for me..I have a great plan for this, which I will reveal when finished !
Lastly, I have been invited to join my first ever swap..The Modern Quilt Guild of Ireland have asked me to join a pincushion swap...am so excited and feel very inspired to take part.

I AM BACK !!!

I had a rather eventful start to my summer, in my quest to get fit and drop some weight, I decided I would ditch the car in favour of cycling to work...it resulted in this...one nasty tumble over the handlebars of my bike left me bruised and battered, and in plaster with two broken fingers!!!
I have been unable to work and carry on with the two loves of my life...sewing and golf! I had my finger set for three weeks at a 90% angle and was not even able to drive. Got lots of reading done and I suppose at least it was summer and we had a good one ! I have always been a glass half full sort of gal !
