Half is X2

I have been so crazy with the move, and the Craft & Quilt Fair recently that I have hardly had time to think about the blog - well that's not true, I did think about it, and was troubled that i had left it stagnant for so long. But despite my best intentions, a lack of Internet connection sealed the fate of no posts.

We now have connection, albeit v e r y slow! Of course there are lots of things that have been happening that I'd love to share. Tonight's not the night though, it is 6.50pm, and hungry kids that need food baths and bed need my attention. But, one thing I will share, as it is one of the happiest things that have happened to me since moving ....

I am very fortunate that I have a half sister that I simply adore, she is 14 years my junior and from my Mothers second marriage. And, now I have two! Almost serendipitously, (we had made contact via email about 6 months ago, but had no idea at all that living here would put me in her 'sphere') I have been reunited with my other half sister, Leah who is 12 years my junior from my Dads second marriage. She and her partner own a catering business on the Central Coast, and a cafe at Erina Heights - which IS MY local cafe! What a surprise and a JOY!

This is she and I! What a gift! This move has given me more than I ever hoped for.

Sea, Tree and Books from France

We are in the middle of moving house and office. We are having a tree and sea change, moving to Matcham which is 14 minutes west of Terrgial Beach on the Central Coast of NSW.

We have been anticipating this move for a month or so now, and only just got confirmation last Friday. One thing about my procrastinating husband, when he DOES make his mind up things move very fast.

One nice little respite in all the craziness going on around me was opening a box form my dear friends at Quiltmania. Carol had written to tell me that she was sending me some treats ... and what a treat they are!

These books have been published by Quiltmania for the European market and the content is in French and English.

Thank you Carol for your niceness, it is appreciated!!
