Today the kids are back in daycare/preschool. For the first time in many months I am in an empty and quiet house. I am still finding my routine!
There are so many things I need to catch up on. How did I spend the first hours? I cooked myself bacon and egg for breakfast. Then I picked up a fun fur scarf I started last winter and finally finished it off. Heheh. After that I made a pair of ear rings. I have so many new beads that I don't know where to begin!
What about my sewing? I bought a few pieces of material last fall and I am actually eager to start sewing. I received praise for the dresses I made last year and while I was in Miri actually made two identical dresses - one for myself and another for my friend, Esther. Actually my good friend Kheng Hua, who is an accomplished seamstress, helped me with the two dresses.
And then there's the quilting. One of my regular clients dropped off three quilts a few days ago. I have to get back to quilting but my studio is too cold right now. There are also a few other things I need to get for my quilting machine before I can actually start. The canvases on the three rollers need replacing, and I have actually bought one of them. I still need to order two more pieces of canvas, though.
For now, I will savor the quietness and read blogs on the internet, and read a book. :-)
