Has it really been a month....

...since I last blogged? How did September go so fast?
Well the new job is still great, but very time consuming. I'm in school more hours than I had anticipated and when I'm at home I'm making resources and writing up notes, but the main thing is I am enjoying it.

The down side is that everything else has taken a back seat. However I have still manged to fit in a little bit of crafting.

On my needles I have a pair of socks for one of my girls. One down one to go. I've even sat in the staff room at lunch time knitting which got a few strange looks but do I care? NO

I joined Buttonberry BOM, Janelle Winds Bluebirds, and the first block arrived last month. Some how I have found time to do it! Then I reread the instructions and realised I had completed the centre of the flowers in the wrong colours. Well, I was a little cross with myself, but there is no way I am unpicking it, so they are staying as they are. It is going to be a really pretty quilt, with all my favourite colours.

I have also managed to finish the second month from The Fat Quarters Christmas club. The Fat Quarters Bag is lovely and there is no way I am giving it away as a pressie. But I may make more later on.
So somehow I am getting the balance of work/home/craft sorted out without even realising it. Well I guess my need to craft is inbuilt and cannot be ignored.

Should have some more knitted things to show next time as I have started a jumper and cardie for my youngest two. Might have to take them into work too.
