Not much Quilting...


... is getting done around here (but plenty of shopping has!) I have been away for a few days visiting family and of course I had to visit the fabric shops on the way. I got a lovely pack of brown, cinnamon, chocolate type fabrics from Grandmothers Garden. I will have to get onto making that coffee quilt I have a pattern for. Perhaps if I stop drinking the stuff so much I'll have more time. Last night I did some hand applique on a block from a quilt I started last year. I think I sewed around two petals of one flower. I usually only do hand sewing when there is something good on TV but I was shifting boxes of quilting magazines yesterday so it was all I could do to concentrate on the programme itself (well that's my excuse anyway). I've started watching the re-runs of Black Books - seriously funny if you have that kind of sense of humour. I didn't realise that there was a little prequel to the programme. Last night's was 'The Grapes of Wrath'. I'll be looking out for next week's.

Today I have been cleaning the oven, including pulling it out from the wall and cleaning behind. Thanks for the standing ovation :-) Next job is the fridge. There are all sorts of alien life forms lurking in there.

Today's photo is of a pavement mosaic in Tauranga. Do you think the artist is a quilter?

Ooh, I had a parcel arrive today from Grandmother's Garden - my daughter said to expect it but not to open it until Christmas Day - isn't that cruel?? Its squishy...
