Has it really been that long

I realised it had been a while but really has it been THAT long since I wrote a post. Time ,  he really is a thief.
I guess a lot has happened since my last post and really I'm not sure where I should begin so probably I just draw a line in the sand  and start afresh from here.
I haven't entirely been away from social media , I have joined the Instagram community and have found that to be a little more user friendly from my point of view. As the name infers Insta meaning instantaneous , it is very quick to upload a photo, simply add some dialogue and post , it is very quick and easy . Writing a blog takes more time in the sense that photos generally need to be resized, prettied up , I like to add a watermark and some borders , then write some sort of explanation , anyway enough of that, I have realised I have missed writing my blog and hearing from my followers, if there are any left after this very long interlude.
If any of you are Instagram users and are interested in following me my user name is @misslinen.

Spring has well and truly sprung here in Australia , in fact summer is only a couple of weeks away. My favourite flower, the Hydrangea is beginning to bloom , this is the first from the garden this season.
I am still madly sewing, with many quilts on the go . Expert tuition and guidance is given by the amazing Margaret Sampson-George. I'm sure you are all aware of her quirky style.

This is my adaptation of Marg's 'Going Green Gradually' as you can see mine is Going Grey Gradually.
I'm auditioning borders for my quilt, I think this is the winner

Cross Stitch is also another lovely pastime of mine. Recently I have been hosting a Pincushion Stitch Along , it has been really wonderful seeing all of the creations by the other participants. Many of the girls haven't cross stitched for a long time or had never cross stitched, cross stitch is making a resurgence for some and becoming a new hobby for others. I love it because it is so portable , I have been known to cross stitch at traffic lights , never any down time here
This was my entry for the SAL


There you go , my first post in such a long time, thank you for the many emails I have received asking me to continue posting , I must admit I do feel a little like a fish out of water !!!

See you soon

Happy sewing

Lovely to see your post!

Margaret said...

I'm glad to see a blog post from you! I agree -- instagram is so so much easier! And it's fun too! I'm often tempted to forego the blog route, but I like it as a record of what I do, so I keep doing it. But instagram is so much fun! I'm glad you do it! I'm in love with your quilt. Sigh. I so wish I could take a class from Marg Sampson George. Or Brigitte Giblin. Or any of you talented Aussie ladies.

interesting thread, talking about instagram... i write my blog as a journal for my descendants... they can see what I made and when, why I made it, and I have a record of the items I have made and given away.
