Bee blocks and ponderings…

Hi all,

I am still here, just doing a lot of thinking and not a lot of sewing! Thinking or pondering really is counterproductive!

I did get these bee blocks made though -

Bee block 1 for April

This is called Evening Star. A great paper pieced block!

Bee block 2 for April

This one is Lucky Pieces. Both are for Bronwyn who was queen bee for March in the Ausmod Bee.

And I have finished another block for the Afternoon Delight quilt. It only took a month, need to get back into these!

Afternoon Delight block 7

And what have I been thinking about? Well, I am wondering if I have time to make a clutch for the engagement party this weekend – but I fear I have wasted too much time thinking about it!

I have been thinking about how to rearrange my sewing space and fit it all in, I really need to pull everything out and sort it out. But that will be a huge task, so will have to wait until I have more time LOL

I am worrying about how to help my kids so they don’t fall behind at school. My grade two-er is struggling to keep up, he is supposed to be getting some extra support but until that happens I wonder what I can do to help.

Oh, the worries of being a creative mum!

On a side note – I feel awesome today! Smokin’ hot LOL I had my hair done this morning and it is the best haircut and colour I have had in years. And she straightened it for me, something I have never done before and I love, love, love it! Tomorrow I am going to buy one of those things!

Great blocks Jess! Hope you figure out your ponderings - and that your little man gets support sooner rather than later :o) I'd love to see a pic of the new 'do!

You should get your hubby to take you out tonight with your lovely new hair do ;)! Tell him I said so... ha ha ha!
Lovely blocks you've been making.
Also, don't worry too much about your second grader. Not all kids develop at the same time and he will catch up in his own time. I don't like the way most schools nowadays expect all the kids to be at the same level. I think we have a much better system in Switzerland, where kids learn at their own speed, at least in the early years.
I would just read with him every day, trying to make it fun for him. I remember both my kids where "behind" at some times and they did catch up in time and have both managed to get good university degrees without any problems. Hugs

Enjoy the new do. I'm in a bit of a straight hair mood at the moment. Making the most of it before it gets to dams and the curls wont do anything but curl! Dont stress too much about your son. He will take it all in his stride and once the extra help arrives for him he will be fine. Now stop pondering that clutch and go make it :o) hugs

Great blocks. I'm supposed to be making the Evening Star blocks for an exchange. I'd better start one of these days. The blocks aren't due till fall.

your blocks for Bron are both gorgeous, great block-choices and fabrics!

I spend a LOT of time agonising about school-and-friend related issues with my girls. Lots of second-guessing and worrying and hoping. I do hope you have a plan to help your little grade 2-er. Mum-instinct is usually right!

I get my hair blow-dried and GHD-straightened every time it's cut-and-coloured - I'm booked in next week - so that's 6 months since my last visit! My hair is long, thick and out of control - and I never wear it out unless I've gone through the drying-and-straightening rigmarole. Needless to say, it's pretty much always up in a bun!

Have a great weekend.
