I'm not sure if I have been totally slack but some of those synonyms could apply to my blogging efforts over the last month or so.
I have been making stuff, but not so much of the quiltystuff. I made Seville Orange marmalade, the Mister and I have already gone through a
jar and a half, two jars, it is delicious spread thickly on toast (either hot, buttered or cold, buttered).
I've been making bread, which we have been toasting to eat with the marmalade, it is also rather nice when spread with crunchy peanut butter and sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.
In between baking, jam making and eating, I've done a little bit of quilting, this rather cute "Girl with Umbrella" was a free pattern on Craftsy, it was nice to make something small and quick.
I've also done another section on the My Small World quilt, which was fun although it does leave my work room in a mess, little bits of fabric scattered everywhere which sometimes makes me think I should just push on and finish it quickly, but I am really enjoying working out how to make the different parts and deciding on the fabrics I will use.
There has also been a lot of sitting around by the fire because the weather lately has been miserable, rainy and cold, and it is just so nice to sit near the fire and read a good book (there has been a bit of reading done as well)
and there has also been a bit of fabric fondling, I finished paying off my laybuy for this bundle of fabrics which are the fabrics that are in the kit for the Homespun magazine BOM, which I am not making, I just like the fabrics - Kaffe Fassett Collective.
