OK I might be getting a little ahead of myself by putting the unfinished quilt on No. 2's bed. But I tend to get a bit excited at this stage of things. Please forgive me!
I still have to sew the borders around the whole quilt. Come to think of it, I haven't actually cut them either. But there will be three strips of the different fabrics making up the border.
I'm not sure if I got the whole cool/warm colour thing quite right at times, but I think it will be just fine. I had to make a quick trip back to the fabric shop this morning to buy more of the spotted fabric for two more squares!!! OK, I actually need 51 more squares, but to finish this part of the quilt I only need two more squares. How annoying is that???
Well I could hardly go all that way and not buy anything else now could I? Only thing is I forgot to photograph it for you to see. Will have to correct that next posting won't I? It will be worth the wait though, I promise.
We were celebrating Gran's 80 something birthday on Sunday. Lots of yummy party food was had. I made her a pink hottie cover but forgot to take a photo of it, silly me. She really wanted one after seeing the one I made for my mother's birthday. It was the first thing I made on the new machine.
And boy does that machine sew like a dream! It's so smooth and lovely to use. Just glides over the thicknesses. No clunking and grinding either.
With the warmer weather we tend to notice outdoor situations a little more. The vegetable garden was rather overrun with weeds. But now I have two lovely beds waiting for me to visit the garden centre. Two other beds are still waiting for their makeover. I hope the weather continues to put out lovely sunny days.
Now I must go and sort out two hungry children so we are ready for kindy. Hope all this makes sense as it was done at great speed. Not so much time for blogging these days sadly.
Hope you are having a good week. Catch up with you all later on. Would love to hear from some of my frequent visitors. I am very curious to know who you all are? Go on, leave me a message - please!!!
