Catchup on WIPs


Finally I've got the "Swirling Leaves/Autumn Quilt" off the chair and re-united with the sewing machine... have finally started quilting... I've traced the leaf design onto the golden paper - which is so good to stitch over, then rips away (though remember to rip gently!)...

And then at Quilt club meeting today, I finished another of the Gail Pan BOM blocks, am really enjoying stitching these, and everyone comments on how good they look (the design that is!).

One of our club members who is an OT gave a great talk on exercises to relief the aches and pains from long periods of sewing at the machine, hand quilting etc, along with showing correct height for your ironing board, sitting at your sewing machine etc. Was a great talk. Got home from Club just after 4pm and quickly chucked on the bike gear, and headed out for a quick 20km ride (took just over an hour) to make the most of finally a fine day!
Hmm, Miss Bella is not looking too impressed with all the cuddles she's been getting lately !

Tomorrow Mum, Dad and Sis in law are coming over for the day, after they've had a reviving cuppa, Mum and Sis in Law, along with DD1 and myself are hitting the recycle clothing shops, we haven't done the rummage through the racks for a few months so we're looking forward to finding some bargains. I got a head start on them and went to one on Friday in Cuba Mall and picked up a MAX long sleeved blouse, perfect condition for $10 !
