ALEC'S WALL HANGING

Well... I think I got a lot done on baby Alec's wall hanging last night.  I got all the pieces cut out and ironed down, now I have the massive task of doing all the stitiching/quilting/backing/binding etc.

Not a two minute job.  

But first, I have to go to Spotlight and buy some black thread.  This project will take a lot of it, and I've actually got NONE!

I don't know how I ran out of one of the most basic colours!  


Now.   I shall show you how far it's come, since it was just an idea yesterday afternoon:


ABOVE:  bear in mind there is still heaps to do... but you can get the drift.  The butterfly needs bright dots on it's wings I think.  
I personally wouldn't have put a butterfly on this wall hanging, but Bernadette wanted one.  Butterflies have a special significance to her and her family.

For the rest of the day, if we don't go out and about, I shall be sewing I expect.
So... until later...

ONWARD...

We just did the grocery shopping.  It was OK, fairly busy in the supermarket but I didn't get all grumpy.

Lunch just done, now going to chill out for  a little while before going down to the sewing room.    I did get some more thread, inside Spotlight was bedlam! There is a big sale on right now, but I really don't need anything.

Huge queues at the fabric counter, luckily I only needed thread.  

Well... it's been a very quiet, uneventful day here.  I cooked beef nachos for dinner, it went down well with the family, expect for Dante, who found them a bit too hot.
So he had baked beans.

End of Day:  I am finding the days are getting slightly cooler... which is wonderful!
I still get hot as hell, but not as often.
