I plan on finishing the 2nd Dresden Plate project today....

ABOVE: Amanda wanted to put her name on it... but she was too slow!  It's going to a friend on the North Shore (Auckland) who saw it in it's unfinished state and loved it.  So, hopefully I will get it made into a quilted tablecloth for her today.

Then I plan on starting my own DRESDEN PLATE Quilt.... in my beautiful blue fabrics!  I can hardly wait.

ABOVE: in case you haven't seen me blue fabrics... there they are.  They make me drool.... lol!

Apart from doing some sewing, I expect it to be a boring day... just around home... housework, yard work.... bla bla bla.
I hope you out 'there' have a fun day...


OK... am I the ONLY one blogging today??? 

It's almost 3pm and I still have not started any sewing! Been doing housework, went out to look for a table thingee to use in the lounge to put my laptop luck there.

Home now and it's stinking hot again today, which is making me shitty as hell.  I am so over being hot all the time.  It's doing my head in and I'm starting to get crabby at Stew and the kids.... I just want this heat to STOP.

ABOVE:  Steve sent me these photos of Emily... awwwwww.

Yes, Emily does have dimples!  She also still has blue eyes...hopefully she will keep them. Amanda has hazel eyes and Andrew's?  I'm not sure  but they ain't blue.
We think she's very advanced for her age, smiling and coo'ing like she does!  lol, but we are kinda biased eh?

End of Day:  and I finally got sewing after dinner... and now it's 11pm and I just finished the 'tablecloth' for my friend ... maybe we will pop over and give it to her tomorrow.
DIET: so-so
nite nite.
