March 2nd??? … where did February go?

Hey everyone!
Sorry it’s been static round here – I blinked and a whole month was gone …
What have you been up to? Please share!
What have I been up to?

First I settled my little people into school life again :
IMG_5912Here with Maisy the Prep guinea pig πŸ™‚ My littlest started prep this year! Where has the time gone???

I joined in a couple of QALs!
Here are my first two blocks from the Snapshots QAL :
Snapshots QAL Block 1
Snapshots QAL Block 2I will have to share pics from the others next time as I haven’t taken any yet lol

I painted our spare room.
This is the colour the whole interior is going to be painted – Taubman’s Straun Grey:
IMG_5859I will eventually replace the blinds and wardrobe doors, but it looks nice and fresh so far πŸ™‚

I put a new QS bed together {all by myself in under an hour lol} for our newly painted spare room :

I made a VERY exciting discovery!!
Leaders and enders!
My.Mind.Is.Blown!!
Cut all your scraps to 2.5″ squares and sew a couple together at the start and end of each chain during a project! I can’t tell you how much thread I am saving!!! And I am ending up with these :

I’ve been to the optometrist :
IMG_5900I also turned the big 4-OHHH in February!!! Or as I like to call it, Thirty-ten πŸ™‚
… which might explain my diminishing eyesight haha

I have also been sick and had a niggling cough for a few weeks which I am only just shaking.
And been working hard as usual. I love meeting so many of my customers – I get some fabulous tips and got one this weekend that I am keen to try out when the weather cools down and I can get back in the shed to work on it πŸ™‚

Anyhow … That’s how I’m doing. I’d love if you’d let me know how you are doing!
