Back On Track

Ever since the beginning of the year, I've been unable to get back into the rhythm with my sewing / quilting.

Maybe it was my two-week trip to Singapore, because anytime there's a break in my routine, everything goes out the window.

More likely than not, it was my grandma's passing. Unsurprisingly, it's affected me tremendously. I think more than even I thought it would. I don't say much about it because what can I say? That I miss her? That I wish I could've said goodbye? That I wish I could've told her one more time just how loved she was? She knows all this. I talk to her every day. She knows.

So my boss (me) finally cracked the whip and told me to shape up or ship out. She's such a slave driver :) I like it when I'm productive and have something to show for my day. Enough moping around. My grandma wouldn't want that.

I finished the Max & Whiskers quilt top yesterday but I need to get an appropriate backing before I can quilt it. I think it's super cute... what say you?

And I'm making progress with my Hope Valley quilt top... hopefully it'll be finished sometime tomorrow. Love :)

P/S: I bought more pins so my pincushion looks ridiculous. I go to grab one, and I get a fistful. Sometimes I'm too clever.

I can appreciate how crap it is with your grandmas passing. I lost my nan 3 years ago and my grandad in December and I was very close to both of them.
The Max and Whiskers is very cute though! And I look forward to seeing more of your hope valley quilt. I am still stashing my hope valley fabric :)

Damn you Che. You made me cry.
I feel a little lost without her too.
I always looked forward to lunches with her when I flew back to Singapore for holidays and I miss every little thing about her.
I was so motivated at work but even since I flew back to Perth I lost my drive.
I think I need to get myself out of my emo box and just get over it too. Sighhh....

Everyone's allowed time to get their sand back together when someone they love moves on. Because you are so awesome, you get extra.

I love what you did with Max and Whiskers. That fabric is so much fun.
