Been a while

I have been AWOL. What have i been doing you ask? Well there has been alot of visits to here.
My Mum had a brain haemorrhage 5 weeks ago. She was transferred to Auckland Hospital to have surgery and ended up having 5 surgeries over 4 weeks. My brother and Sister and I have been doing shifts travelling up to Auckland to be with her. She is now back in Dunedin she has had another surgery since and is now up in a rehabilitation ward to get her back to eating and walking and all those normal things. She will be there for at least 3 months.
It's going to be a long hard road for her and us and we would appreciate any thoughts or prayers.

On a crafting note, I have a new toy.

It is awesome and I LOVE IT!!! It was an early birthday pressie. A friend was travelling to America for work and he brought it back for me.
I have been doing lots of cool things on it. Will try and update with projects at some stage.
In the meantime here are some dresses i have been making for orders and markets that are coming up. The owl ones are a owl quilting cotton. The Aqua coloured ones are made from a gorgeous Linen with vintage doilies appliqued onto them.
