2ND HEART QUILT ON THE GO!....

ABOVE:  I got a good deal done last night!  I am using up some long strips of fabric that was left over from the quilt I made Brylee 2 years ago, that's why I have the colourful horizontal sashings different from the blue sashings.... I'm hoping it ends up looking OK. 

I am amazed that the blocks are lining up so well... usually I stuff that up!  I can't see a wonky line yet... but give me time... there's 4 more rows to add on yet!  lol

Now, as for today:  well, we need to go to Sylvia Park for more of me pills.... but that's about all.  I will work on the quilt no doubt... and his nibs can potter around the house and yard and entertain the kids....

ONWARD...

ABOVE:   phew!  Almost finised the top, it just needs to be made a tad wider .... 
Stew's had a shit morning.  The cross trainer broke down so Stew has spent  ages trying to fix it.  I think he has... time will tell.

Off out and about soon, need to stretch the legs after sitting all morning sewing...

Been out, got a few bits 'n' bobs... nothing else happening really.
Having spare ribs done on the BBQ tonight, my mouth is drooling just thinking about them ribs!  They have been marinating in a Chinese Honey marinade.... oOOOOOOOoooooo, yum!

End of Day:  a peaceful evening, dinner was lovely.*  nite nite

  4. I love the colours in this quilt. How on earth did you get this made so quickly? You'd give Speedy Gonzales a run for his money.

  11. Very pretty quilt! It looks like there's quite a bit of detail in the hearts. Are they made from many different pieces of material? Just lovely!
