Although in some ways I'm thrilled that the year seems to have disappeared in the blink of an eye. My husband is still working over in Europe (he left in August). He is home in 16 days and 21 hours...not that I'm counting.

Creative time has been at a premium and although I've been spending significantly less time online than I have in several years (probably a good thing) I'm finding other ways to engage the creative part of my brain. Listening to podcasts during my work lunch break, joining swaps, running my own swap again. Small projects are good right now but I'm ready to sink my teeth into a big quilt or other equally time consuming project.
Otherwise I've been reading a lot, watching old episodes of Ink Master and No Reservations, playing Candy Crush (oh dear god when will that addiction end?) and generally working hard to keep my house tidy, my kids in clean clothes and getting meals on the table. I figure most of the time two out of three ain't bad. When I hit three out of three I know its a really good day!
I just spent an awesome weekend in Tasmania with my friend Amy. Food, shopping, relaxing, food, talking about sewing, day tripping, food. I barely took a photo. Some things are too good to look at behind a lens.

Spending time away from the computer means I've had a lot of time to reflect on blogging. Do I still like it? Do I miss it? Should I keep going? Remain the same or have a change? I'm undecided.
