Back Online

 I have a new computer. The old one crashed. It was old and not worth repairing.
December and January visited my children and now that my husband has retired there is no need to rush back home and we always take Suzi with. Its just a short two hour flight.
Summer is always extremely hot so I have mostly spent more time reading.
We had a  severe hail storm a few weeks back causing a lot of damage. Heavy rain, strong winds and hail like I have never seen before - it was very scary, and... we had an earth tremor 3.1 the same day as the earthquake in Taiwan...hmm strange. My son is home for three weeks holiday. I cant believe Easter has come and gone. This year is going by too fast for my liking.

Some small items that I have made.

                                     lunch bag. Tutorial from Ayumills blog

                               microwave bowl holders - these are so handy

         Cell phone armband case with window and a pocket for earphones or house key, for when I walk the dog. And four snack bags.

secret luggage tag and handle wrap

                                               cable holders

             Tablet holder for my sister

Guild members were asked to make a paper pieced Protea block - here is my block.
