My plan today is to get a whole heap of sewing done... I want to get all the applique' done on the baby quilt at least by end of day.

I will do that once I've got the house ship shape... which won't take long.

It's the last week of school for the kids this week... then they have two weeks off.
I can't believe how fast this year has gone!
Hopefully they will both end the year in their current school, and start the new year in Hamilton... all going well.

Stew got up in the middle of the night to watch rugby... It's the World Cup in case you didn't know and the All Blacks had their first game at 3 am (ish), vs Argentina.  I don't know the result yet... I'll ask Stew later, or check the news.

I'm not that fussed on the World Cup really, but it would be nice if our guys won the cup back to back.  

Right, I better get a move on... it's going to be a nice day, I love my sewing.


4.27 pm:   and clearly I've been busy today!
I have done all the applique' on the quilt AND quilted it!
Now 'all' I have to do is make some binding and sew it on, then hand stitch it down.  
I'm really happy with how it's coming along:

ABOVE:  While it's a very simple quilt, it is pretty don't ya think?  I have to make eyes for the bugs too... better not forget them!  And WHOOPS, I now see I haven't stitched the inside of the 'A' either.... 

End of Day:  it's gone to bloody shit.  Our current contract has FALLEN DOWN.  AGAIN.
I am totally over it.  Feel sick.
nite nite


  1. I am not fussed about the rugby either but it's hard to escape it!

  2. Only thing I interested in the World Cup will be when it's over. It annoys me you watch the news and its all about rugby then all again on sport. Rugby is not news it's sport

  3. It's VERY nice. And not too busy! :)

  4. quilt looks so cute

  5. Nice quilt - simple is good. I like the bright colours :)

  11. That really sucks Don't blame you for being over it. Quilt looks really cute.

  12. Your baby quilt is very sweet. Sorry about your house sale falling through. Selling a house is such a stressful exercise. I'm hoping to get our house at Matarangi listed before the end of the month. Apparently there are barely a handful here in our price range so hopeful for a pre-Christmas sale.
