And in a blink it’s December. Don’t know how you feel, but to me we have jumped from April to December with not much in between. Gosh, we’ll have stories to tell about 2020 as we get older. COVID has been the biggest thing my generation has had to deal with. But you know what, we’ve done it! One of the girls today said that she misses the quiet life of Lockdown. And I agree with her. I haven’t had as much time at home in years. Often heading off to work at a show or stitching day, that involves packing, driving, working and unpacking. It can get pretty hectic. Managed to do a lot of sewing, finished 3 hand pieced quilts, even quilted one. Also started writing on FB and Insta every night. And a lot of readers jumped on board, they would read and the comment, so feel like l made a lot of new friends. And of course l launched my new website, l guess it’s no longer a new website, it’s 6 months old already. Restrictions have been eased and we can look forward to a normal Christmas.
I have some spare seats on a Thursday if you’d like to join us. We start at 9.00ish and go through to 11.30 If you’d like to join us shoot me off a message. It’s $5 a session, tea and coffee and great company included.

MMQS might be closed for the summer break, but the website is always open. If you need anything over the break you are more than welcome to ring or email me and we can organise a time that suits both of us for you to visit and pick what you need. It’s not a drama, it’s one of the great things about having a homebased business.
This week I start decorating. It takes me a day and l end up with mess everywhere, but by then end of the day everything’s tidy and the house is looking festive. I don’t do much outside, just a few bits here and there.
Last year l ditched the paper wrapping and instead made a bunch of fabric bags in a variety of sizes. These can be reused each year, doesn’t have to be Christmas fabric, Christmas colours are fine of go through your stash and find fabrics you no longer love, they’ll make great gift bags. Every present must be in its own bag and the bags need to be returned after Christmas so that they can be re used each year. Did this for the first time last year, couldn’t believe how quickly l got the gifts wrapped.
I may be closed over the Christmas break but will still be adding bits and pieces to the website, l will still be doing FB posts and l will still be stitching.
Have a wonderful Christmas break with family and friends. Rest up because l do believe that 2021 is going to be a ripper of a year.
