Hi there peeps.... I am so relaxed. We have just had a long weekend and it was great to do nothing. Really, all we did was watch movies and eat yummy snacks. The week before was a shocker. All the boys were sick, the weather was horrid and my throat felt like it had razor blades in it....I had decided early in the week that we all ( especially me) need a break from everything.
As usual though, I can't just sit there and do absolutely nothing. I have to have something in my hands so I started an embroidery that I designed. It's so pretty. Just what I need in a house full of boys.
Now that I'm nicely rested I am ready to get back into it. Yesterday I was at the shop with all the lovely Tuesday Ladies. There is always lots of laughs and a bit if sewing done.
Today I machine quilted this little quilt for Kerrie. It turned out fantastic.
I have cut out some pants for Archer. I have a few shelves of fabric for clothing. I thought I should use it up so I have room for more patchwork fabric...lol, Oh and my little guy needs some warm winter pants. Out came the trusty Janome overlocker. I have flogged this little machine for 12 yrs and it still keeps chugging along.
I also got a half an hour on this very bright quilt. It is cut from templates made by superquilter Kim Bradley. The fabrics are all Kaffe & Brandon.
This week is the Sydney Craft & Quilt Show. I had decided that I wasn't going but I am so torn. How can I not go. I haven't missed one in so long. Every other minute I change my mind and think I should go. I might miss something that everyone is talking about. All the quilts. This year there is 400 quilts on show. All the new gadgets. All the shop owners that I only see once a year. Not to mention the bloggers meet up that is on on Friday. Oh No, I think I have just changed my mind. Better sleep on it and see what tomorrow brings...Are you going???
