A PLACEMAT? NAH....




Well... I had planned on using that new material to make placemats... but once I got cutting out I realised I had enough for another quilt.... so there ya go... I'm making a Star Quilt for the spare bedbroom now...the first block is above. *sigh* I did want to make one for our bed next.... but as I only want to be doing ONE at a time... mine will have to wait.

Today:

Kids to school, catch up on blogs... leave lots of lovely comments... then do some more sewing. I am going to PACE myself.... no more sewing for hours on end and getting a friggin backache!

And I INTEND to get on my treadmill and exercycle too.... make some small steps to getting my fitness back... Gym will be happening this week too... but that will be tomorrow I reckon. Too much to do today!

LATER.... and I've been busy! Spent an hour re-arranging things in the garage to make my sewing area more user friendly.. then before I could start sewing my Aunt rang... 45 minutes later.. still on the phone... a knock at the front door... it's my neighbour over for a yak.... 30 minutes later... bye bye neighbour... and the phone rings AGAIN... it's one of my nieces ringing for a yak... so I havn't had much time to do anything!

I am now going to try and do some sewing before I have to pick up the kids! I just DON'T know where the day has gone already!

WHOOP! I have found a quilter to quilt Brylee's quilt for me... I am taking it to her on friday... and it will be about a month till she can get it done. That's fine.. I'm not an IMPATIENT person... no, really, I'm not! lol

ABOVE: I've made quite a few of those star blocks this afternoon... happy about that. Not sure how I will join them all together yet... thinking....

Sewing is GREAT for the diet I might add... you can't stuff your face AND sew eh?

End of Day: and we are going to bed early! it's only 10.15! And no... not going to bed early for any 'reason'... just tired. nite nite.

  5. The new star blocks look great Chris! I can't get over how quickly you are producing them. It would most likely take me weeks just to make one.

    Oh ... and Christchurch isn't really that bad!! Lol.
