Today was the end of term party and dress day at Rhiannons Playschool.
She went as Tinkerbell. I made the dress a couple of weeks ago after she had watched one of the tinkerbell movies. There is no way I am paying 48 dollars for a costume so I bought a pattern that i can adapt for a few things and this is what came out
She likes it!!!
till next time G XX
I am hap hap happy to say that the quilt for Isabels wedding this weekend is completely finished. I spent this afternoon sewing on the labels while Rhiannon was at school. This has to be a first for me to have a quilt done with a few sleeps left!!! Normally I am doing it the night before.... what am I going to do on friday night?? I have lots to get done.
Robyn (Farmnan) has made me a custom card to go with the quilt. I'm sure my friend Isabel will be very happy with their present and card. And thanks Robyn for the beautiful card.
I have what feels like 1000 treads to pull through, tie off and sew-in then the binding can get sewn down and it will be done. I am feeling good that I have all the sewing done and only the finishing to do. Surely I can finish it!!!!!!!!
Last night with the stormy weather I got a little motivated.....
After the epic phone call (in which I finished the blanket stitch on the last heart block) from my BF in Cairns I got all the blocks sewm together, the boarders on the backing joined and it all pinned together.
Now that's motivation.....
The wedding is 3 weekends and i don't want to be sitting up late to finish the binding or sew on the label!!!
Today I hope to start quilting it. It will only be straight lines so hope to get it done and have the whole thing finished before next weekend........
I need to get a wriggle on!!!!
I have 3 weeks until my friends wedding and the quilt is no where near being done......
I have about 5 weeks to get my FRIENDS swap stuff together and posted........
and I have a split thumb which is making it hard to stitch.... I am allergic to cardboard boxes I think. Opening them all night at work really dries my hands out and they end up cracked and bleeding....it HURTS....
I am a Thrity something female married with the most beautiful girl Rhiannon or Renny as we call her.We have just expanded in the family sense with the birth of our handsome mini man Isaac who has completed our little family.I have the best husband who I would say is also my best friend. It's great to have a partner who realises that craft is more important!!!
