Wow it has been a while, hasn't it? I'm so sorry I had to stop doing the block swaps.

I kind of took a break trying to figure out what was causing some mysterious and at times scary symptoms.

We are partially there.  A little over a year ago I was diagnosed with about 5 sleep disorders.  Some aspects are being treated and others are on the to-do list so I'm still feeling pretty tired.

In addition there are some arrythmias that have shown up and no cause yet but no-one is prepared to to tell me they are the non-dangerous kind. 

Anyway the past 18 months have been turbulent to say the least.

Max's school closed down and we frantically had to find him a new one which ticked all the boxes.  Many parents were applying to every school they could think of but we found only ONE which we were happy with and fortunately we were high enough on the waiting list to have got a place.

It's absolutely fantastic and beats the other one hands down.

Max has a slight issue with his eyes and is doing vision therapy to correct it so hopefully he'll be seeing better and doing better at school once he is done with that but there is more testing for him also.

Lastly, one of our darling cats passed away a week ago.

I really haven't been sewing much besides hemming etc.

I can't remember whether I owe anybody a block? If so please let me know.

I've been dabbling a little in papercrafts again.  I'd like to have a stash of cards on hand.  Usually I just make them as I need them and sometimes it can be stressful if I haven't got much time.

Given all that has happened over the past year, I feel that I would really like to revisit scrapooking to document this time and the past few years also.

Right now, paper crafting is less demanding and tiring than quilting or sewing.but I would love to get those UFOs out and finished.

I think I'll blog about some of my scrapping and cardmaking here but will see how it goes.

Anyway I'll sign off for now and hope to be back more often.

  1. Hi Alex, lovely to see you posting again ;-)
    Papercrafts are very theraputic! Glad to hear there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel with your health issues too!
