September! (I'm slow, but I get there in the end)

I can't believe it's a month since I last posted here. I have been busy and preoccupied I think. I am still working on this quilt. I'm liking it more and more!

I am getting closer to having it finished! I made two trips to Adelaide in August which tends to keep me busy! It's a more than 1,500km round trip which takes forever if you drive it! One of the trips was to see child number four graduate from Uni. Again. This makes it three times now. She has a bachelors degree, an honours degree, and now a masters degree. Five and a half years of study and now she is a fully fledged teacher. She hasn't scored a job yet, but is working as a relief teacher which is keeping her pretty busy. And paid. After being a student for so long she loves the paid bit of working.

I'm not too keen on this photo as it has me looking like the side of a house, despite the fact that I have lost 25kg this year. I guess it's good to have a reality check now and again though and I definitely need to lose a lot more! I'm not "dieting" at the moment. I just needed a little break. I'll get back to it any minute now.

And speaking of "breaks" look what I did to my stockpot lid a couple of weeks ago! We were all quite sad about it when it happened. Even my 19 year old son. He spoke fondly about his memories of this pot as did his siblings! That's the moment I decided that we all need to get out more! Owning a saucepan for 16 years doesn't make it part of the family! So I am going through all of our stuff at the moment. we have waaaay too many things! Today is going to be a sewing day though. I'm off to sew some more!
