I have had

a lovely start to the week, yesterday was sewing at Port Arlington...I pinned the side hexies onto the border of the hexie quilt and have one part nearly sewn on...pretty exciting!!!
Barbara was working on her Japanese quilt putting on the borders
barb has some great fabrics in this quilt

Sue was working on some cathedral windows, love the fabrics in these, there was lots of other things happening but I didn't get any photos.
Today I have been to Seachange quilters over at Barwon Heads and had some wonderful help quilting the Minions quilt. The Three Musketeers, Pat, Heather and  Valma  have also just learned to use the machine so they were happy to have another go.
We had everything happen to us today that I think could have happened, we made a mistake and had to unpick, (groan!!) then the needle fell off...that was scary!!.....the bobbin ran out mid run ..talk about lots of learning experiences!!!
But we got it done and I am very happy with it!

A very productive happy day.
Happy sewing.

Your minions make me giggle. Great having access to the quilting machine and even better knowing how to use it.
