I've got mail!

A while ago I was the lucky winner of a give away at Barnyard Chatter, fiber artist Grace Howes's blog. This week I received a parcel from America - unwrapping it was so much fun!

It is a gorgeous mini notebook, in my favourite colour. Thanks again Grace, I really appreciate it!

It came at a good moment, as I was a bit down on Wednesday. I had just had a hearing test which showed that I have a mild high frequency hearing loss. I wasn't surprised, for I have had trouble understanding speech when people speak very softly or when there is some background noise for quite some time now. But it is a major blow that at 39 I am becoming hard of hearing... (yes, it does run in the family)

I have an appointment with an ENT surgeon in 3 weeks and will discuss the matter with him. I would be happy to try anything that will help me to hear better. The fact that English is not my first language makes it all just a little bit harder.

To end this posting on a more positive note: the selvedge quilt is almost finished! I am halfway through hand sewing on the binding and hope to finish it tonight, and show you the quilt tomorrow. In the meantime my sewing machine is away to be serviced. I can pick it up tomorrow and start on my next project!

PS Check out the latest issue of Down Under Quilts online - it has my Jacaranda quilt on p. 18 and the Optical Illusion Quilt on p.56 and 57!!! It will be in the stores next week.
