Archive for February, 2011

My posts will be intermittent for the next few months as I have decided to embark on a full time educational course for the next 4/5 months and I am finding it hard going. If it gets too much I’ve decided I will pull the plug, although that’s not really me as I’m more of a work yourself to death kinda gal.

I’m hoping to enhance my computer skills and to take my quilting design to another level. I’m short of time and patience for the moment and I have a very sore neck (tension from stress I’m guessing). There’s a lot of homework and a lot of classwork to be perfectly honest, especially as I’ve forgotten so much and I’m trying to get myself up to speed and do the current work as well! I’m still working part time too. The floors are dirty, the dishwasher to empty and there’s ironing to do but I deserve some downtime before the evening onslaught. Catch me if you can and wish me luck!

I named it after my Aunt. Not too many Donalda’s around any more.

Or perhaps you prefer the tulip wreaths instead?
