Well my last weekend plans sort of disintegrated into lounging on the couch – inbetween the rain and working from home I didn’t get much else done all week. I have been addicted to watching reruns of ‘Grand designs’ a fabulous UK show where you get to see a house go from planning to completion – and all sorts of designs from totally handmade eco homes to hi-tech modern architect design homes. Anyway watching reruns has strengthened my resolve to one day buy a big area of land by the sea and build something interesting and eco. One day. In the meantime I have been living vicariously by popping in on Amanda Soule and her handmade life.

If you have sent me an email lately, you might be thinking me quite rude in not having replied. The truth is you are no alone – my inbox is filling up and I can’t yet quite face them. Instead I did my tax – yes that is how bad the email situation has become. I need a PA! If you too are looking for a perfect procrastination project then may I suggest one of these Pojagi style quilts – excellent tutorial for making these the modern way at the Silly Boo Dilly.
