Well, look who just popped in to say hi!

I know I am MIA, but how many times can I tell you about going to work Monday and Tuesday, home Wednesday and Thursday quilting like mad, and Friday having my sewing machine course, and using Friday as my shopping day?

Exactly – so although I am busy, busy, it is pretty humdrum.

I have a small pile of quilts growing – that is pretty satisfying – and I am waiting with baited breath for my imported stock and material to arrive. Heaven knows how anyone can manage to wait so long, I am informed that the parcels get to Johannesburg airport, and stay there for ages! That does not surprise me at all.

I am going on a course a little later today to create a quilted bag, it is already costing me R240 – so it is not a cheap nor quick and easy thing to do. Pictures will follow!!

Sean has sold his accident-damaged car – for more than we expected. That is good!!

Courtney has her baby on the 10th December – by caeser. So we can all be looking forward to that. I must phone her later today.

I miss all the internet interaction, but with me popping in to my email everyday, in and out, I am not very actively answering mails.

Please spare a though for my Aunt, she has had a bad accident whilst she was on holiday and has been in hospital for about 2 weeks in France, with bleeds in the brain, and now a blood clot near her heart. She is very dear to me and is my godmother too, so she is very special.

Keep well, everyone.

Gosh..I'd love to take a sewing course. I have a fairly new machine...not as fancy as the one that you have but still a very nice machine with all kinds of attachments and gadgets that I really have no idea what to do with. Maybe I can find a class around here somewhere.

I have been thinking good positive healing thoughts for your Auntie's recovery. I am so sorry she got hurt and hope she has a speedy recovery and is all mended soon.

Not long now until you and your family have a new baby to fall in love with and dote on. Oh and it is such fun. I want to see this purse/bag you are quilting. Pictures soon, I hope?

later my friend, Jolie
