I needed to take a break.

Too much to juggle. Family, work, health, home. The usual things. Oh, and the house needed re-wiring.

A recent trip to the Blue Mountains with a stop at Post Office Patchwork at Glenbrook has reignited my sewing spark.

Fell heavily for some Tilda fabric (Lizzie the quilter knew it would happen) - Cabbage Rose and Memory Lane.

Thought it would make this pretty clamshell cushion designed by Red Brolly.

There's even a free pattern. It's rather a clever way to make the clamshells too.

Just across the road is a funky cafe - The Church at Glenbrook. Great coffee and treats.

I'm looking forward to sorting out the mess in the sewing room and stitching again.
