Last week was a busy one, with several evenings out....being social of course! One Wednesday a month, we gather at Janette's house to stitch and save the world. It is always fun and definitely inspiring. The very modest Chris always drags out a beauty...this stunner has been languishing for about ten years after the centre toile was given to her.
What can I say? Gorgeous!
Janette is making amazing progress with her Big Bang quilt which reminds me of a fiesta.
And there was some beautiful paper piecing ready to quilt.
Well, by this time I was exhausted from just admiring and aspiring! Phew!
Thursday night saw me surprising sweet Shez who had travelled from the Deep South on her way to Nundle. She was staying with the always lovely Cheryll, and I met two new friends, Jen and Sharyn...we had the loveliest evening!
The end of the week saw me at Novocastrian Quilters where I helped sort blocks for the churn dash swap...
catching up with friends for coffee and rearranging my living area furniture! All the classic signs of my chronic bindaphobia were there!
This beauty was quilted and in need of finishing as It was for delivery to my son as a part of his birthday! When did that little boy grow up.....the mothers lament! Despite my good intentions, there were some impediments to my progress....
But I soldiered on!
It is looking fabulous...and the binding is almost completely stitched on...even DH is impressed! It will be ready a whole three sleeps before delivery!!! I am pretty impressed with myself!
Will post a pic when the binding is COMPLETE and the fur is removed!
