Phoenix rising

I bet that Doreen never expected to see this happen………her CQ block finally completed!

I’ve been feeling rather bad about the situation,I must admit that Doreen’s block has been in my possession for over twelve months….
and apart from a yet unfinished Candlewicked piece…….this is the longest I’ve ever taken.
My sincere apologies,Doreen

Life has been a bit weird this year—–
I embarked on a TAFE course for Tutoring in Literacy & Numeracy—–and didnt realise just how time consuming that would become,between lectures,assignments,practical classes etc.

Then,my hip decided it “was time” for a total replacement!
The day before surgery four weeks ago,I handed in my final assignment for assessment and accreditation……….
and yes,I arrived home from hospital to find I had received my accreditation.

(I felt very pleased about that)

So Doreen,I then applied myself to your block…………I hope the long wait was worthwhile.

My ‘ creative juices’ are starting to kick in again…..after a very long time when nothing seemed to work.
maybe just feeling well has made the difference

I have scanned some Japanese maple leaves (from last year’s trip) painted some fabric;
then printed the leaves to the fabric;
and now am ready to try and make some “LEAVES” postcards for a Postmark’dart swap.

Oh! the hip! Just call me Lurch (smile)
Everything is healing well;pain is minimal;
all I need is for the surgeon to give me the all clear so I can go back to driving,walking and swimming.
