My Photo
Location: Culburra Beach , NSW, Australia

I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

living ~ July 14

didn't do a whole lot today - took two big bags of 'stuff' to the op shop * called in for a cup of tea with a friend and this afternoon I took a book into bed and read for a little while. My soul seems to be weary right now and just to have a nap does me good.
I am battling to get on with the wedding quilt * It needs to be finished by end of September so that I can have it quilted and then have enough time to put the binding on. It is gorgeous & well worth all the work that has gone into it !

Taking it nice and slowly and having little nanna naps during slow times ~ is great and I often go through such times...
Do you think you could post a pic of the quilt - if not now, when it's finished? I am going through a quilting craze at the moment and would love to take a peek at any of your work! :)

Oh you're into quilting? I love quilting, tell me something do you hand sew or machine sew and do you cut the fabric with scissors or use a rotary blade with a board? I'm just curious, btw I love op-shopping too, it's my favourite past-time. You can pick up so many vintage & retro bargains.

Amy ~ I do both kinds of sewing. I love to applique. When I do piece work, I use my sewing machine. When I cut strips or squares, I always use a rotary cutter & board. Of course applique is cut by hand. I usually quilt by hand but the wedding quilt is going to be machine quilted.
