Spinning?  Well... Dante was:

ABOVE:  I had a brain wave, and decided to put Dante on the Lazy Susan... and while he looks like he's unsure about it, just know he did NOT want to get off it!
He loved it.

I made a Bacon & Egg pie the other night, it was DELICIOUS... I'd not made one in years!

ABOVE:  I was really happy with the pie, and everyone loved it.  I used 1.5 kilos of bacon, 5 big onions and about 20 eggs!  It fed us all, and we had left overs for lunches the next day too.

I have only ONE thing on my mind today, and that is to finally finish my Dresden Plate Quilt.
I did a hell of a lot yesterday, preparing the border, and today I will be sewing it on.

I'm so excited!  It's going to be finished!!!

So... I'm gunna go and do it ... right now.
I'll be back later on to show you the finished result.


MARKD60: "How do you do that.  Post photos of the finished product when you're deciding which to make?"    Simple Mark!   I pin everything together, it's not stitched on.  That way I can chop and change and decide which is best!  Then I unpin it and sew the option I like the best!

BLONDIE:  Yes, I am aware of the new 787-9 Dreamliner arriving here tomorrow afternoon.  I'm going to find out when it's due and hopefully we can go and see it land.

Off to carry on with the quilt now...

The quilt... is 90% finished, and I've run  out of fabric to make the pillowcases, so I'm ducking out to Spotlight right now to get some.
I am bloody determined to FINISH this project today.

Griffin spent a lot of time overnight on the loo.  But ... he's feeling better now.  Phew, thank goodness for that.

DONE       DONE       DONE

I still have to pull out the gathering thread!  Whoops.  Tonight I am going to make a second pair of pillowcases.  The pair I just made are quilted even!

End of Day:  An awesome day!  I am just so thrilled to bits with my quilt!
AND... I started playing a game on my phone called 2048+... and it is now 1.38 am and I've still not 'died'... so it will have to be continued tomorrow.
It's addictive.... what can I say?
nite nite.
