My new flexible spine

I have started a yoga class, which i thought would be a good way to stretch and relax. I was half right, we stretched alright, my legs and arms didnt know what had hit them! I thought about the animated movie  (what was that called?) with the stretchy mum, that would have been a handy asset! Anyway it was a good start, i learnt that your eyelids close from the top down, yes really. Ah i know i am a cynic, but i will go with it. Breath in, breath out, got it. Actually i think i had that one down since birth, but never mind. Standing tall then try to touch your toes, actually i havent done that in a long time! It turns out i havent really done any effective stretching for some time ! Despite the lack of flexibilty i did enjoy the class, and hopefully it will help my very stiff spine. This will be my inspiration, go girl!

Thanks to Heidi again for hosting FNSI, which is a great place to check fabulous creations from around the world, go take a look!
I have been working on these little blocks and have another six cut out ready to be put together, 

The sashing will probably change a little, i hope to add some bits of the fabric here and there to make it more interesting, will post that later! Hope you all had a great evening!

I think i need help

Ok I've had enough of the junk hanging around, can somebody please come and take it away!  My other half isnt as tidy as he could be, so i need to get rid of half the stuff in our garage so that we can make sense out of what we need, when we can find it that is! I advertised some stuff online, some genuine enquiries have come through, but also getting texts from some damn scammers, they read a bit like this, " hey man u stil got stuff for sale, we make deel",  yeah right, im sure you are making deel! !@#@ scammers!
In other news, one quilt is in the process of being pinned to within an inch of its life, im trying not to repeatedly stab myself with the pins, unsuccessfully.  Picture one deranged looking woman hopping about with enough bad language to make a warfie blush, ok well maybe your grandma!
I tried to make a concerted effort to increase my fitness level by walking up our driveway- it is steep and long! Even that had me gasping by the time i got to the top! I had a clever idea to start hiking mountains, i guess that will be a work in progress now, but i did some laps loll about in the pool this afternoon, so that would count as a move in the right direction surely.
I think i ate something dodgy, my guts is churning and feels weird, all i can think of is the hospital sandwiches i ate yesterday, or the frozen pizza we had for dinner, I know, the hospital could be a bit more health conscious.
ok im gonna go, the lawn needs mowing and the dog is useless at it, no matter how much she tries, she cant reach the pedal, damn it!
