Mother and Child

Ha, got myself all prepared for an afternoon of participating in activities with Miniatures Enthusiasts Tasmania (Kingston group), only to discover that it was our Annual General Meeting that was taking place LOL.  Anyway, nothing lost - paid my membership for this year and heard what everybody did in the past year that I had missed from not being present.  Just had too many personal issues that needed sorting out before I could immerse myself into this hobby again.  Now the time is ripe again.

We have the Miniatures' Extravaganza taking place in July this year in Hobart and I think it is going to be another great effort by everybody working on the project.  Although I would love to participate in building my own box, I do not have enough confidence in my abilities yet at this stage as I see myself as a newbie in miniatures with very little experience.

I also got my study assignment in today on its due date and started on the next one - pity my 'lesser' half decided that he will listen to music in the car downstairs in the garage so as not to bother me with music out the back.  Only problem - it is so loud, he may have been playing it on his computer next to me in the study! 

Now I do not have to feel guilt when I work on my quilt tomorrow!  Woo hoo.  I am really looking forward to this.  There are just SO many things I want to get started on but do not want to create too many objects that end up as UFO's.  I know, the outcome will be the same anyway - everybody has UFOs!!  I need to learn to let go and enjoy the moment - get structured in something else, not planning my projects like military exercises.

Off to pull out the fabric and get the cutting board ready ........

Warm regards
