So this one is B4 - Chris' Soccer Field:
This one is B5 - Hot Cross Buns (and still needs the diamonds hand appliqued):
And this one is B6 - Wild Goose Chase:
Today is also AGM time for Quilt Club, which means our current President will be farewelled (she has done a magic job of rejuvenating the spirit of the club) and welcoming in a new President and committee.
Today is a rather grim chilly day, too hazardous for skinny road bike tyres, am a little more cautious of wet roads now after my fall. So will plug in the earphones and sit on the bike attached to the indoor trainer for an hour (very boring, though helps keep the bike fitness). Tomorrow could be a mountain bike day am thinking either the river trail or Rimutaka Incline.
Have a great day.

This is a baby quilt made from the scrap box. I've made for my hairdresser who is expecting her first baby. My hair cut and colour is with her is next week (her final week before she takes leave), so I am looking forward to giving to her (along with the wee rabbit I made). Fingers are crossed she will like the quilt and use it :)
Now I need to get cracking and make two hanging sleeves and attach to the two quilts that I'm entering into the Capital Quilters Exhibition - we need to hand in the quilts on Sunday ... love working under pressure!!
Thank you too for the kind thoughts and wishes, after I told my tale of the bucking bike! The bruises are coming out in their glory and the boob is less sore! Still haven't been brave enough to try out the new shoes and clip pedals... got side-tracked helping DD2 with homework tonight... well that's my excuse!
Tomorrow night am going to see Allyson Gofton at a charity evening (for Te Omanga Hospice), Allyson is promoting her new cookbook "slow".
Righto "The Good Wife" has just started... gotta go!

How on earth did I manage to end up on a heap on the side of the road! Well this mornings bike was with DH and he hasn't been out for ages (on his bike!) and was feeling the need for coffee - so we decided to detour to my sisters, crossing the road to go up the driveway (a few houses down from their place) going up the kerb of the driveway my bike had different thoughts, and decided to slide off the kerb along the edge and spit me off the bike!
So after catching my breath, we walked to my sisters, had a reviving coffee, checked my bike was okay and then biked home. I just know am going to wake up feeling very stiff and bruised tomorrow!
This afternoon picked up the bike shoes, cleats and pedals and had them attached to the bike, so I guess I will be testing these out on the indoor trainer and on the school field to make sure I can unclip my feet from the pedals in a hurry before venturing out on the road!
