Wednesday

Finds me at home after sit and sew down at St Leonards, I was running late this morning after walking the Supervisor and fiddling around so no long walk for me today!!  The Dignity quilt is back home with me, not quilted, sadly as a spare part is needed for the quilting machine. It will not be working for a few days. But the lovely Mrs Perry has offered to help me so I am heading up to Bullengarook on Friday to see what we can do. Great excuse to catch up with a good friend!!
I have done a little more quilting on the mosaic
one face done, one to go

you can sort of see where I have been stitching! Sometimes it is hard to see the thread, the invisible thread really is invisible!!
Today at sewing I was given some figs..we didn't get any from our trees, the birds got them all, but I have tried to make fig and ginger jam
at the moment it looks too runny and the fruit and liquid have separated, but it tastes good!!!We will see what happens when it cools down, hubby very helpfully suggested we can have it as fruit salad if it does not set!!
Time to go and do a little more quilting I think.
Happy sewing.

I wondered what the technique was for doing the photo piece - first of all I thought you were sewing all those pieces together - whew I'm glad you didn't have to do that! The jam looks good - it would also be yummy over icecream!

Your mosaic looks amazing, yummy jams or deserts :)

That mosaic of yours looks amazing Sue - you do such detailed intricate work, you are so clever. Your jam looks rather yummy too.

I'm loving watching the mosaic taking place.... I use that invisible thread in quilting quite often.. it's great even if hard to see where you've been.

Fig jam doesn't last long... yummo

Doesn't it take forever to stitch all those rows. The end rules are so worth all that time...

Are the squares on your mosaic just on top and you stitch them down like freemotion quilting? Anyway it looks great!
