So a few things have happened since my last blog back in Oct of last year.......My goodness I have neglected my blog, haven't I.

I will admit that life has got very busy and the sewing machine has been put away since January and I don't know when it will be brought out again.  Hopefully soon but I am not putting any pressure on  myself to get anything done.

You see this little bundle of joy came into our lives arrived in February ( just a little early) and with Cora, life has got very busy.

As you can see he is not wasting away....

There has been a few makes before Padraig arrived  ( that knitted blanket in the background is one) but they can be for another day.  
So what I am doing when I get an hour in the evenings (not every evening) is a bit of hexagon making.  I thought this time around that I would be a little prepared for a good few months of not sewing on the machine, so this was organised and put in a bag with all the bits needed to hand sew.
Some of you have seen one or two photos on Instagram @erinbillybuttondesign

I have so much fabric that I could easily not buy anything for two years and still have enough wadding, batting and thread.
So my plan for the rest of the year is just to get a quilt or two finished, get a set of blocks done, but no pressure to finish anything.
