Following on from yesterday's catch up, I've got nothing new to show, the kids don't have school on Wednesday's so it's generally a day of shouting, feeding, getting kids to football and tonight an unexpected trip to the garage.
But.... here is my starter block for the Quilt U Be Mine round robin
and lots of webbing and ribbons to make some key fobs for Christmas and quick gifts
My new ironing board cover, isn't it yummy, I'm almost frightened to iron on it incase I spoil a funky flower
oh and look what arrived, I bought a scrap box from Lynne@lilysquilts and it was sent to my aunt, my uncle arrived this morning with this box of delights, I've just spent an hour sorting through it all and there are lots of lovely fabrics, so I've got squares to cut, some strips, hexis... wonder if my girl will help during the holidays
And finally, the pot holder that was started on Retreat, actually got pieced on retreat has finally been quilted and bound. I started a crafsty course on Machine quilting and since I was waiting for the Janome's new bobbin case to arrive, I got the Brother PQ1500 off the frame and had a practice stitching freehand circles with the walking foot, I've never really bothered before but I quite like the effect, each are approx 1/4" apart. I have decided that I love the Janome for it's adjustable needle which the brother doesn't have.... so it's gone back on it's frame and the Janome is back in it's true home (along with a new bobbin case and it now seems to be sewing straight again)
Tomorrow it's Medley quilt cos I've called off my french lesson, I seem to have caught the feeling unwell, achey, tired, flu type bug and have a raging sore throat so best to stay at home and sew eh :)
