The Wanderer Returns ...

I can't remember the last time I blogged ... but it has been too long!!!
 Despite not blogging I still read all your amazing blogs and gaze in awe at all the fabulous creations  I see everywhere.
I'm not even sure if anyone will read my latest Blog post ... I'm sorry for such a long absence.

There has been good reason to prioritise my life after the loss of my marriage, quilting, creating and blogging came low down on the list for a while, but I actually did not stop creating - I can't - It's been a therapy really. I just didn't have the time to blog about them. 

Still my life is all good now, I have lots of reasons to smile and maybe this is the start of a way back into the blogging community and keeping myself motivated and inspired to create more.

 Recently I've enjoyed making some Baby Gifts for a work colleague who went on maternity  leave last week. Small projects are great for keeping me motivated on a day-to-day basis, I can pretty much knock out a couple of these on a work night!! 

Soft flannel, taggy cloths backed in fleece.
 Burp cloths, I love making these!!
An owl quilt made from pattern found here
 All set out in a pretty basket ...
 along with some patchwork bibs ... I loved making these and can't seem to stop!!
 A great way to use up scraps left over from a quilt!!

And there we have it ... my first blog post in far too long.
It's good to be back feeling positive, energised and with a lot more to show over the coming months.

Lots and lots of reasons to smile :-) xx

Wow! You are so creative, Caroline, it would be a loss to the world if you stopped quilting! I love the quilt with the owl on it!
