Is there anybody out there?  You may vaguely remember me, you know, the occasional author of this here blog and even more infrequent sewer of late?  No?  Oh well, thanks for visiting anyway ;o)

One of the spectators I was assisting at the Commonwealth Games last week gave me a really icky cold/cough/chest infection thing, meaning that I didn’t end up doing the additional shifts I’d offered to do yesterday and today.  I was really torn about it, and hummed and hawed about calling to cancel, but honestly, I’ve felt so bad I couldn’t infect anyone else, plus I’ve lost my voice, so it’s not like I’d have been much use at talking to and directing people!  Having spoken to another former Tollcross-er though, who had volunteered at this other location on Thursday, she assured me they had plenty of people anyway, so it made me feel rather less guilty.

What this did mean though, is that I’ve had a little bit of sewing time over the weekend.

This has turned into a project and gone in the post, and I’ll be able to show you more in, um, about 3 months time:

This bundle, now that the replacement for my cutting faux pas arrived, has become a complete quilt front and back.  I’m afraid my lack of energy means that I’m not setting up the photo studio for now, sorry, but I’ll try and show you soon:

And finally, I’ve started work with this little bundle of scraps from the lovely Karen, which I’ll be able to show you the results of in about 4 months time (sorry!)  Karen sells these scrap bags for ยฃ5 a go, so why don’t you splurge just a little and have a play whilst you wait to see what I’ve been up to.

Hope you’ve been getting in some quality sewing time of late, I’m ever so slowly catching up on my blog reading (down to 6 days ago, but when I hit each blog for the first time, I’m trying to get all the posts in since then, so it’s getting faster as I move up the list)
