Well, where did August go….I think I blinked and it was over….but isn’t it wonderful to see spring here….It has been amazing watching these sweet peas blooming and growing. What a feeling it is to grow something from seed.

Thinking back, what have we done this month? I took myself on a Quilting Retreat to Nowra, and had a blast with a girlfriend. We spoilt ourselves to an extra day in Berry and shopped and shopped and enjoyed lots of precious ‘ME’ time. It got me motivated to get back into my sewing, but am determined that I can do both my passions, scrapping and stitching equally now…well that is my goal.

With Christmas around the corner too it has been planning and sorting and getting some gifts sorted.

Retreat is here….well almost. I am anxiously organising it all.

Please welcome Teina Cumming as this month’s featured Scrapper in the spotlight. Teina has been with us for over 12 months, and her work is always stunning. We hope she inspires you with her Feature story and layouts this month.
