A stitch in my side

Momentum

on October 17, 2014

Ok – so it’s been a while. May in fact, ridiculous, the year is almost done!!

So where have I been… well nowhere really and everywhere. Mainly up and down. My dear father passed away in June after a long illness. While you can prepare for the inevitable you can never prepare for how you will feel as the days progress.

We found this lovely photo of him which none of us had ever seen before until we started looking through his secret stash of boxes and envelopes. It is a whole other lifetime away, well before marriage and children and responsibilities.

As a consequence I hadn’t much felt like sewing, until a couple of weeks ago when the desire to sit with Jacqui the Janome became too overwhelming.  Since then, I have completed some new bags for cousins, my mum and myself, finished hand piecing the top for the hexie quilt, chased up some sashiko and worked towards completing the binding on another quilt for a friend and looked at another old standing project that I had with fresh eyes.

I’ve also slowly been catching up with all my favourite blogs and getting back in touch with what everyone else is up to.  It’s been interesting to see everyone transitioning through the seasons as we head in to warmer days here down under while everyone in the north is grabbing the knitting needles and crochet hooks and looking for toasty projects to work on.

I promise to make more regular contributions to the old blog – I do miss it when I don’t do it.  Unfortunately, my only writing of late has been for job applications!  Certainly not the most creative of outlets although with long term unemployment I have developed a brilliant and quick system for knocking them out.  Anyone looking for a Library Technician of a certain age… call me…

Well, I hope you are all well and I’m looking forward to hearing and seeing and sharing with you all.

Until next time,

Sonya May

  1. Welcome back Sonya. It is a great photo of your father in his younger years. Sorry to hear of his passing. Sounds like you have found your creative side again with all the projects. Good to have you back 🙂
