I was sitting sewing on Thursday afternoon and glanced out the window...such a peaceful view!!
Yesterday I went up to Bullengarook to the house of Mrs Perry, she offered to help me with the Dignity Quilt for the Guild.
so after watching a YouTube video we loaded the quilt and quilted two rows, then the tension went and we spent hours trying to nut out what the problem was...in between Tracee was feeding me and her family!! We finally changed the quilting cotton and then adjusted the tension and off we went again, I am very proficient in unpicking quilting now!!
Harmony found a wonderful place to rest!!
Finally at 10pm we did the final row!!! Yay!!! Happy dance!!
The fur babies had gone to bed, so it was time for me to head for home. Luckily I didn't have any encounters with any kangaroos!!
This morning the Supervisor and I went for a walk...he did his bit for the community and watered every thing vertical!! When we got back I did some pruning until the green bin was full,
then I put the binding on the boys mosaic, just the hand sewing to go!! I did forget to put on a hanging sleeve, will have to do that later.
I trimmed the dignity quilt, I am very happy with the quilting...thank you so much Tracee for persevering and putting up with me all day!!
We have a new family member....meet Herman the German hermit Crab!! Hubby found him on the ferry back from Sorrento last Thursday!!
This afternoon I also managed to get the binding sewn onto the Dignity quilt...hand sewing on the agenda for me this week!! You might be able to see the bag of clips on the quilt?? Tracee gave them to me yesterday along with
this beautiful tin, which I am going to keep and use for sewing
and this chocolate which was in the tin...which I am sure the rest of the family will consume over time!!
Hope you are all having a Happy Easter and lovely weekend.
