Yep, there's a mish-mash of stuff going on here!
My darling DDY is home for the school holidays... just can't get enough of being with her... & so good to have all 5 of us at the dinner table together! She was here with us last week... this week, she & the DDC have headed down south for a sisters holiday for a few days, which they both were looking forward to.
As for my gut, it seems that my gastritis is something I'm going to have to live with for a while yet... some people experience episodes of it from time to time, others have it for longer, & others have it for longer still... kind of like the question about string & its length really. Clearly my string is a good length now, being that this all started about 2 months ago.
I've been getting a good start on food knowledge from a local dietician & further understanding about my condition. The educational reading while informative, is not as enjoyable as my current leisure reading, that's for sure. At least I'm having more good days than bad ones now, & of course it's good to know more about the condition itself.
With all this other stuff going on, it's been quite hard to focus on any project in particular... however, I'm off to Retreat on the 20th of July, so I'm starting to think about what I want to work on for those days.
I've been sitting on this very pretty layer cake & fabrics for a while now, & decided that Retreat would be a good time to get started on using it... the blocks are big, & easy construction with HST & background fabric. I love me a pretty HST!
I've already cut the layer cake squares & organised them into what is needed for each block... the background white fabric will be cut before Retreat.
I've also (finally!) started trimming back my stitchery blocks for my Ruth's Quilt & plan to sew the top together while at Retreat... or make a decent start on it at least.
I really need to catch up on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks, I've not yet done the May & June colours, & the colour for July has been announced too.. eeekkk!
Not a single stitch has been added to any of my EPP projects in the last few weeks... sometimes it just happens that way. But I do hope that if you've been EPP-ing, you'll link up here.
