Oh it’s such joy to have the brain functioning again!

I really hadn’t realised just how down and out I was. The website needs some major updates, and now I’m finally on the mend it will be done. Not enough hours in the day to get it all finished straight away, but at least I’ve begun. If you check out the Rainbows page, you’ll see a massive improvement – I am SO sorry it looked the way it did for so long. It’s only because my wonderful friend Kendra went looking for something on my site that she accidentally drew my attention to that….so now, it’s fixed.

There are so many more products I need to upload, and so many improvements I want to make. The Frustration of not being able to just sit and get stuck into it when I have to stop and make dinner is unbelievable lol!

Oooh and I want to work on the Perfectly Pieced and Patchwork Pumpkin blogs again for my great friends Bronwyn and Therese! That’s for my little web design business – MTA Designs. Now that the cogs are turning again I’m hoping to grow that side of things. I never stop learning, need to feel more confident and need more hours in the day to get to that point.

In the meantime, I’ve started a double wedding ring quilt with some Jinny Beyer fabric (my favourite fabric designer of all time!). I’m hand piecing & yes I’m slow but the first ring is done and I’m thrilled to bits with how it looks.

So, soon enough I should be full speed ahead! Only another 10 days on these blasted antibiotics, back to the cardiologist and hopefully finished with them at last. It’s been 7 weeks on them so far & I’m over it. But with the improvement I’m already experiencing I’m really looking forward to removing them from the equation as well. Should even manage to get the Juki set up again next week at last – can’t wait!


Well, March is here already. 2019 has been a very tough year so far. I’ve been off the grid for a while, for various reasons. The big one is that I have heart failure – a total shock to the system to hear those words, let me tell you!

It was only found because I have THE most amazing GP ever that I’m still around. This is the 2nd time he’s saved my life -literally. This time I’m not going to take it for granted, though. Lucky for me, I’m able to have a CRT pacemaker installed & that will make my life much better – a workaround, kind of. It’s not my arteries (whew), apparently I had either a virus or infection that affected my heart & have left bundle branch blockage, making my heart very weak and out of sync. Plus it beats really fast – which is quite unsettling, let me tell you.

Anyway, don’t want to bore everybody to bits with my health issues, just trying to explain why I’ve been out of touch. I’m tired (very tired) a lot of the time, and haven’t had the energy to keep up with everything. But I still love keeping in touch with my customers ! To that end, I’ve just updated the site with some specials, so I hope you enjoy them…. make sure you pop on to the main page & take advantage of them.
