Blue....

Wow, where has this week gone?
Everything's blue around here lately- partly hanging on since Xmas, topped with reduced work available for a casual worker, therefore less money. Stress gets you so down you can hardly talk. Well, for me anyway. 
I had a break from Twitter, so I didn't drag everyone else down in my blue. No one noticed I was gone, which was both good and bad I guess! It did make me feel better, forgot about my own predicament for a while I guess!

Anyway, have been busy sewing to keep me busy, calm me down and not stress about things.

Some cutting....


piecing and sewing....


I helped a pal de-stash got a lovely little extra....if you haven't seen Leslie's amazing fabric, go now!!


The Little Miss got lucky too- Jodie had spoilt her, and given us her next sewing project! (And both parcels arrived on the same day, lucky coincidence!) (PS Jodie- she loved the Monty and Pearl card the most I think, I have one on the fridge and she was soooo happy to have her own. Simple pleasures, huh?)


I 'Libertied' my letters Santa bought me....


and have finalised my 'oilcloth swimming tote' pattern. 
These will be for sale soon!


 so, yep, lots of blue, but still some good things to carry me through. Always a work in progress.....

Glad to see you are managing to stand on top of the blue. Loving all you works. Our house is very nearly back to normal which means I might get to do more than handcrafts. Freedom for Sewing Machines!!!

I noticed you were missing from Twitter, but everyone deserves a break now and then. Me included.

Your blues for the made in cherry quilt are gorgeous!

Hope the work situation picks up soon. xx

Sorry life has been stressful for you - try to hang in there, the tide will turn, it always does. xxx

Hey I noticed you were gone straight away. Just thought it was for another reason!

I refuse to believe no-one noticed you were gone from Twitter. Except for me, but that's because I haven't been on there either. I hope work picks up for you soon.

You are dead right bec, keeping above the blue is a work in progress, every single day.
You go about it in such a great way !

The swimming bag looks fantastic! I too keep the cards that Jodie has sent to me with her little packages too as they are so cute. Hope the blues fade away and you enjoy the rest of summer being happy!
