PATCHWORK TODAY, AND MORE PROGRESS

Last week went incredibly quick.
This week, not so much.
I'm hanging out for the weekend, cos I will get a sleep in at some point.
It's Labour Weekend here, so Monday is a public holiday, Stew will be home.  Nice.

Today I'm off to Patchwork class.  I've got to stop in at Spotlight and get batting and backing fabric for Judith's Wall Hanging too.
It's time to get it put together with the batting and backing fabric, then quilt it!
That's the fun bit, sorta.

Here's the top finished:


ABOVE: It's turned out a bit bigger than I anticipated.  I hope you like it Judith.

So, that's me for now.  Have a nice morning girls/boys, catch ya later.

ONWARD...

Wow haven't I been quiet today?
I've been sewing.  All day.  I'm quilting the wall hanging... it's a long job and I don't expect to be finished for a few days at least.  Then I can bind it and send it off to it's owner.

That's all I have for now!  The kids are home, and once the men are home it's the start of the long weekend.

Dinner tonight is sausages with something easy, not sure what yet.

Oh well... what can I say?  Still sewing!!!  All day, all night too.


ABOVE:  Lucky I've got a biggish dining table.  All pinned out this morning, and as of now ( 11.45 pm) all sewn up.
I never expected to get so much done today, but I was on a roll.
Tomorrow all I have to do is hand stitch the binding down, add a strip of wood and string to the top and it's done!

End of day:  a long, productive day!  Very happy with my endeavours.  Oh and we had an unexpected visitor turn up for dinner.
nite nite

  5. Stunning wall hanging, looks fabulous. Could almost double as a quilt. After a beautiful sunny day it has turned cold and windy. Hope you have a nice long weekend.
