Well. I, like most of you, am patiently waiting for more photos of someone's trip...hmm. Patience is not my strong suit. It's all good I am sure and in time all will be revealed. In the meanwhile, check this out. Bundle, one of our "shop girls" (the one that always helps me with a smile to move furniture, clean up and organize files) made this very successful quilt.
She was looking for something to do with the feature fabric one day and we decided on the Spikey and Peak set by Marti Michell. This is the same ruler set I used last week with the quilt from Quilts in the Sun but look at the difference in the effect!!! Wowser.
We discussed quilting options that would make different aspects of this quilt stand out so there will be more to be revealed later.
And Di from Florence's Monday beginner class has finished her Annie's Garden quilt! She blanket stitched everything by hand and quilted it herself in a relatively short amount of time. I think we can all tell that she is into flowers as she has done a lovely job with this project that is to be a gift for a special little girl.
Speaking of special little people, we had a birthday in our house last night...
Oscar, the one in the middle, turned 17 yesterday. He had a couple of friends over for a very casual dinner after training for a swim, some backyard cricket and a huge bbq. These boys are all working on bulking up for a rugby tour to New Zealand next year. I think, from the amount of food consumed last night they are well on their way. We had a mini fashion show afterwards that was to the Zoolander theme...we were going for Blue Steel but only got Major Footy Nerd in his Skins, socks and Rooster slippers...single minded focus is good.
I am off to make lunches and go to work. Ah, the joys of a busy home life. all the best, Kathy
