At home

I have had an early morning walk along the beach

The supervisor got a lot of attention from the boys who visited over the weekend...he was playing I am not interested here but listening all the time!!
Yesterday I went over to Portarlington in the afternoon

and did some quilting on a lovely ladies machine. it did not go smoothly, the machine did not like the cotton I took over, so it kept breaking. We changed over to another thread and then the tension went wonky...so it was a challenge.....was not happy having to unpick a row of quilting!!!

I had supervision by young Mitsy, isn't that a beautiful face!

another hexie is complete, one is out of whack, but I am not doing any unsewing!!

and today I need to do some trimming and binding on this book reading quilt.
Lots to do today so I had better get going.
Happy sewing.

Well done on overcoming the quilting issues because it looks great. Love your furry friend living up to his nick name there lol! He definitely was playing coy with your son. Another cute wee hexie flower xx

An early morning walk on the beach is a great way to start a busy day!

Well done Sue, your (nearly) finished quilt looks great but it's never nice to have to unpick!

Susan said...

You persevered, though! It looks great! I love the idea of walking on the beach.

Unpicking quilting is not fun at all but it paid off and the quilt looks lovely...
