Just when I thought I was on a roll last week, actually getting into the sewing room and making 2 small quilts and starting a 3rd larger one, quilting has been sidelined again. I had to write a newsletter for the Keas, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers, start off a fundraiser selling spring bulbs (seems weird to sell spring bulbs when its still the tail end of summer), go into my work and pick up paperwork to teach a new course on safety in the workplace and I need to write my regular article for New Zealand Quilter. All these little bits mean I haven't made it into the sewing room/studio at all. Why is it that I don't seem to be able to work on my stuff until I have completed everything for everyone else? Does everyone else have this problem or do they just get on with it? Did I mention the 10 kilos of cherry tomatoes that are sitting waiting to be dried and the pear and ginger jam?
Blocked by the details


  1. are you going to dry the cherry tomatoes- and then what will you do with them? And pear amd ginger jam sounds yum- recipe?

  2. I have a dehydrator so its easy, then I just put them in a jar and cover them with olive oil. The Pear and ginger jam is more like apple sauce. I wouldn't bother with that recipe again. You can try some when you are over here. What do you think of my messy 'studio'?
