I had many plans for this year. When Henry was born, I made a list. Without the pressure of having to work (for a little while, anyway) and when he slept/Audrey was at kinder I would learn to drive, exercise to lose all that baby weight (ahem, from both babies), sort though the 9000+ photos in our iphoto and get some prints done... that kind of thing.
Instead, what am I doing during the hour or so I get to myself each day? Making quilts. The patchwork bug has bitten me hard. There is so much I have to learn about quilt construction and mixing colours and patterns. It's addictive. So, while waiting for the backing fabric for Audrey's quilt to arrive, I've started cutting out the next one. This time using the Flock of Triangles pattern from Denyse Schmidt Quilts. This one's for Henry, based around the sweet Japanese train print I bought with him in mind (from Superbuzzy) when we found out we were having a boy. So that's what's on my desk today - a new quilt. It's making its way slowly onto the floor as I slice up triangles and move them about. So much fun, that other stuff might have to wait just a little bit longer.
