WIP Wednesday Week 39 - More wonky log cabins

Have been in bit of a blogger slump lately. Friday night we listed some more material in the shop here, which went off, so I was busy sending emails, tallying, trying not to mix up people's orders! It was a long weekend here in Perth, so three days of family stuff, had a nice picnic on the Monday at a local park by the river we have just discovered. I have seen articles about it in the local paper, but only just got around to checking it out! Sunday we hung in the garden, pulling endless weeds and Daz has finally removed the last of the ugly cocos palms from the front of our lawn. And I have finally signed up to here. Have held off for as long as I could, but after 4 invites from friends in the last month..... I thought why not. So what time I have had on the net lately I have been hanging in there. A dangerously time wasting site! And amungst all that I decided to join up with the girls from Essential Baby in a Body Blitz 90 day challenge! I'd like to loose those few extra pesky kilos from having the girls. So, I have been exercising! Shock horror! I am so not an exercise person. But have brushed the spider webs from the stepper out the back and been doing 30 minutes a day, in time that I would otherwise be on the net or sewing.

So Facebook, long weekends, selling fabric, gardening and exercising means just a little bit of sewing. Just a little.....


I'm doing another quilt for the dolls swap. Why? Why not??! Well cause I like the first one, but I think I can now make this one a different shape. Above is just a sneek peak. Another wonky log cabin. They look easy but this one has been a challenge as I have wanted it to be a certain size, so I'd sew on a round, then measure, ponder and sew on another. I have actually missed sewing the last week. I am all set for tonight, have got my 30 minutes of excerise out the road, most of my household chores are done, the new series of House starts, time to sew baby, sew!

oh NOOOOOOOOO Helen! Not facebook! I have lost numerous friends to facebook in the last few months. You will get addicted, talk of nothing else, waste more time on the computer and generally become a facebook zombie.
I hope moving over to the darkside doesn't mean you will be blogging or sewing less.

The EB Body Blitz challenge sounds good though. I might have to check it out even if I am allergic to exercise.

That block is lovely -- and isn't it amazing how other things can keep us away from our machines? But -- not for long :0).

Lovely colours in your quilt block!
As for computers....I'm trying to wean myself off them,but sites like flickr and face book are a bit addictive!

Gorgeous colours Helen, I'm actually starting to like pink after seeing all your quilts - could be good if Austy gets his wish of a baby sister in a year or two (he's still hung up on the idea of a sister after seeing Emma's little Eleanor!)

Hi Helen!
Love your quilting... I am going to have a go at a disappearing 9 patch soon with emergency services fabric for my son.
Glad to see you are having fun with the sewing!
