There's a desire and a will, but lack of time. It's not that my creativity has dried up. Just the opposite! I have ideas oozing from me pores, but no time. Moving just now, going to Oregon in a couple of weeks, and of course the evil called work that owns my soul and demands too much of me.
Looking forward to Oregon and buying fabric and ribbon with Aspen for her book. Maybe I will have it finished for her 18th birthday? That gives me 8 years!
I am not sure how to link to my other blog, but I have just posted a couple of pictures on it from my drive through Bronte country today. I will post some other pictures, but the connection is so slow tonight. Will try tomorrow.
Seems silly I think having two blogs. It wasn't what I intended, but I try to keep this one crafty while the other is about living in Scotland.
The blog name is The Markle Diaries, but the address is The Oak Tree Diaries. Long story!
I've come home after a hard day at work with all good intentions of working on Aspen's book, but here I sit. I think the sign hanging in my work space says it all. There's always Hope. If you don't have hope then what do you have? Here's hoping that tomorrow is a better day.
This quilt was made by my Grandmother on my dad's side. It is actually a doll's blanket. I even remember when I got it! When I was young, my parents would allow me to open one present the night before Christmas Day. I have a vivid memory of my mother getting this from on top of a closet. It was a few years later that Grandma died so it became even more special. The quilt has been with me since. And through many moves, including to Scotland!
This is a quilt made by my Great Grandmother who lived in Arkansas. It has a much used look to it which makes it even more special.
Spent the weekend (three days!) creating and cleaning. Have made a good go at making my grand daughter's fabric picture book. Finished the beaded angel, cut all material for crazy quilt squares, and started the bead emboidery of the butterflies. All and all...productive!
