'Piece Yourself Together'... Australia Day Edition

Well, it's only the Australia Day edition by co-incidence...

 

I had not planned to be absent from my blog or from blog-reading for so long (two weeks seems a long time in blogland!). Just a combination of things has made it hard, but I guess I can only just keep trying.
I think part of my 'low' has been that I'm really missing my sewing... & missing the routine that my life usually has... my days have been very full, but I don't feel like I actually achieve much.
I'm happy about the Great Backyard Project, & enjoying some focus on cross stitch & EPP, but there's just something missing.
Last week I caved in... bought fabrics, cut them & they're ready to sew... just the act of the buying, pressing & cutting gave me a lift! I have MissPfaff set up in a temporary spot & the fabrics nearby, so I can just pop there when I have a bit of time & do a little sewing... yay! Pics soon.

Anyway, back to 'Piece Yourself Together'... yes I have added to my collection for my Scrappy Super Long Term Quilt... purples & some greens this time... these ones are already in the tub (& counted on the spreadsheet!) and there is also some more of them ready to baste. They've been good therapy.
 
If you would like to be part of PYT, just do a post on your own blog, showing your EPP project... then come back here & link up in the right-hand sidebar - EASY!

The linky will be available from 6am Tuesday & close midnight Thursday, Australian WST.
I hope you'll join me!

Happy Australia Day ... love those colours :)
I found making hexies to be great therapy and must get back to them soon ... I like 'controlled scrappy' too.

Other things in life do get in the way of our craft sometimes but that is okay. You are so right about buying fabric and starting a new project to get us inspired again. I love the greens and purples together. They remind me of my fav flower...iris.

Happy Australia Day! I hear you with the absence of sewing, I need to get some sewing time back into the timetable too - makes the rest of the life stuff that much easier to put up with!
