Spotlight sale with 20 % off gave me the opportunity to buy fabric for a new very distant cousin in the UK. My first baby quilt - it has lots of aliens for a little boy. I hope his parents like it - and when I say distant my children share a great great grandmother with him !! - still blood is blood and I love the opportunity to make a quilt for someone who will use it.
Tonight is the longest night of the year - it is chilly and dark but at least we now know that it is all uphill from here. Had a quiet family weekend of sewing and eating and playing - very nice. Had a lovely family dinner on Friday night with Alan's family which included three birthdays - one on them my sister in law Louise was the recipient of my latest quilt - the Angle Poise - very happy with how it turned out. And she had a big bag of Ikea fabric that she no longer needed - so lucky me!! and by the end of the weekend we had six new cushions and a table cloth -got to love a quick project!!!
A whole month without a blog - too busy and the computer never seems to be free - we are planning a new set up in the lounge room - may be that will help - any way lots of thing happening- nice long weekend - four days off and a bit of sewing - Gina had a great school project to make a model of an animal cell and she decided to make a cushion - all my memories of mitochondria, nucleus and vacuole come back - and a fun project as well!!
I am working on a quilt for my sister-in- law for her birthday using the Material Obsession triangle Ginger Quilt pattern from the first book - such fun with a right angle triangle ruler and strips - it is really like magic
