I'm back!

Last night I arrived back in Melbourne from back to back workshops and I am exhausted! Too much creativity for one week... if that were possible.  I was also offline for almost a week, so if you have emailed me - I'll be catching up in the next few days and you will hear from me.

I did think I would miss being online and catching up on WOW as I did last week, but I was so busy that I didn't really think about it. It's only catching up to me now as I have just realized that it's almost WOW again. What a week!

I haven't washed Lily Rose again yet. I am hovering over it thinking about the best way forward. It will have to be washed and I will blog it when I do. Today I started preparing my kits for AQC. Now that March is here, April doesn't feel so far away anymore and AQC will be here in a flash. I can't wait - but I do have to finish Lily Rose first so that I can display it at the show!

As you can see, I'm taking bouts in cooling off my fingers. I have a bad habit of touching the base of my iron to see if its hot. It's such a silly habit and it's something I know I shouldn't do... and do it anyway. Well, on my last day of teaching I touched a far too hot iron - one of those old seriously hot bases and scorched three fingers all at once. It's been ice water since. The worst thing is, I'm always telling people not to do it. Just like my Lily Rose Colour Run Disaster, I need to start taking my own advice!


  1. sounds like you need a little rest - take care of those fingers and I sure hope Lily Rose turns out ok for you after the wash - sending best thoughts your way!

  2. Poor you! Hope those fingers heal soon! Hugs, Anne Marieke

  3. Welcome back I missed you and I'm sure many other quilters did to. There are some lovely new photo's for you, so sorry to read about your poor fingers hope they come right soon. Cheers Glenda

    1. Goodness so much progress being made in just one week, will have a proper look with my morning coffee, so much for my eyes to feat on!

  4. Ouch you need to be careful, those are very valuable to you. They execute your wonderful creativity.
    Hugs Bunny

  5. Dear Esther

    When ever I get a nasty burn on my fingers/hand, I put my hand in a bag of cake flour. It stops the burn immediately and takes the burn away. I think it is because the oxygen to the skin is temporarily stopped, from the air surrounding our skin, thus suffocating the burn. It may be a strange fix, but it works. Thank you for the beautiful agapanthus in your next blog. It put a smile on face just seeing it. We are still battling snow storms here in Canada and grey skies.
