Poor Cherry Red

Yep, Poor Cherry Red is missing out at the moment.  I am so busy with Aussie Heroes at the moment that she is coming a pretty poor second.  The only problem is that my heart truly lies with Aussie Heroes and personally I don't feel like I am missing out.  

You must have noticed that I am not posting as often as I once did on Cherry Red and I am sure you have worked out why.  Just at the moment things are rather busy.   We just had the weekend in Melbourne and I have two weekends home and then head down to Canberra for four days- egads!  I am so looking forward to this trip but there is so much I want to achieve before I head down there.

Additionally I am not getting time to read blog posts much either although now that the boys are back at school (thankfully - three weeks is a looooong holiday) I will spend a bit more time sitting in the car waiting for them so will catch up a bit then.

If I haven't commented on your blog for a while that is because I have unwillingly turned into a lurker at times.   I do most of my blog reading on my ipad and sometimes it freezes in the middle of a comment and I can't finish the comment.   No idea why - probably operator error!!!  

So, I am still around, and I am still reading and loving all your blogs but I can't always comment.  

And I am still sewing - lots - but also doing paperwork and chasing media and spreading the Aussie Hero word. 

Now, to end on a happier note - check out this quilt.  I just love it.  It is called the "Carefree Quilt" but I would like to call it something like "Simple Joy"  or "Free and Happy".  

Jennifer over at Ellison Lane Quilts wanted to know more about the quilt so she did an interview with its clever creator, Rosie Stirling, and posted it on her blog.  You might like to read it too.
Hope you enjoy it!

Till next time..............happy stitching!


  1. Wow Jan-Maree, I don't think apologies are necessary. You are doing such wonderful things with Aussie Heroes. We all have other things going on in our lives that take time away from quilting and blogging. I like the idea of Blogging without Obligation.

  2. dont worry.. any one who sews will understand... and we are a patient lot xx

  3. I am a lurker too...like to read but don't always comment. You've really taken Aussie Heroes to a huge level. That's your calling right now!

  4. It is not quantity that counts! You are doing such great work, and it is good to hear from you when you can. I hear you about the iPad typing...I have the same issues! Technology!!!

  5. oh I actually thought that was a person in the shadow at first!! this is great!!

  6. Your heart is where it belongs, the Aussie Heroes are so greatful....I read blogs and say I'll go back to leave a comment later and most often 'later' never happens...I guess I'm a lurker too!! Have a wonderful week Jan-Maree...(o:

  7. i have that prob lum when i enter giveaways my computer freezes

  8. You must do what makes you happy and where your heart goes. Your Aussie Hero project is such a wonderful cause, no apologies needed.

  9. Don't worry we know where to find you!

  10. It's impossible to keep up with all the blogs we want to read and respond to. You just have to do what you can when you can. I think charity and giving should always take priority over commenting on a blog, so keep up the good work!

  11. Awww Jan-Maree we know your heart is in the right place showing a lot of love. You are putting a lot of joy in others lives.
