Clock ticking...


OMG... I awoke with that sinking feeling the other morning... Stonestead 2nd Quilt Festival is on the 7th Feb (yay it is such a magic day so put this into your diaries and come visit!)... quilt regristrations need to be in by 23rd Jan and then quilts no later than 30th Jan.... guess why I've got that sinking feeling... the three items I want to enter are all in a state of non-finish.

Autumn Leaves is 3/4 quilted, needs finishing, binding and thread tidying... then there's the Gail Pan Christmas stitcheries that I made into a top, that needs sandwiching, quilting, binding and thread tidying... and last is the Stonestead challenge table runner - this is sandwiched, needs to be quilted, binding and thread tidying... eek!

Yesterday was my last day at Workbridge, they gave me the most beautiful farewell gift - a Pandora bracelet and voucher to buy my first charm! Guess what my first charm purchased was..... a butterfly :) The second charm DD1 chose and its the 'chain of hearts'. I am going to get DD2 to choose a charm out of the catalogue and that will be my third charm! Was sad to leave the team at Workbridge - though am very much looking forward to my new permanent job which I start on the 26th Jan.

So guess what is high on the agenda for my week off.... LOTS and LOTS of QUILTING - not too unhappy about that as the weather forecast is not looking too pleasing, and I can still take Diesel for a run along the river and if weather good can even sneak in a bike ride or two....

So if I'm a little quiet on postings this week, my head will be down and the machine will be whirring - though promise to load photos of finished goodies :)

HUGS to you all and chat with you soon...
