Here is my mini quilt again, can you see the quilting lines in the picture?
Probably not ... I've been working away at it, and the top 6 blocks here are quilted, and I've started quilting on the block on the bottom right. The applique is outline stitched, and the background of the blocks is quilted in a 1/4" grid. It's slow going, but I have to get a move on, I have 2 weeks to finish it and hand it in! I'll need to get some more done today, or I predict some sleepless nights in my not too distant future!
I'm a night owl anyway, so I probably wouldn't mind!
Clearly in Australia, the onset of the hot weather is the prime time for wool and yarn shopping. I told you not so long ago about my 99c finds ... well, yesterday while out shopping, I stumbled across these little honeys for 50c per ball! Well, of course I had to have them! I would have chosen even more, but I have more than enough projects to take me through this spring clear through to next spring! The multi brown yarn is to start a scarf anew for my MIL. I'm just finding the other yarn too hard to work with on a deadline, so I'm going to put it away for now. The blue in front is for me! I'm a blue girl ... I will really appreciate a new scarf come winter netball season.
In the picture at the top, you can see that I just couldn't resist starting a little of the scarf. I'm actually knitting it in a wide rib pattern, just for something a little different.
Amy was prowling around the house this morning looking for the cat, and look where she found her. I hadn't gotten to moving this quilt yet ... and Madaline is taking advantage of it! Gosh I don't like her being on the table like that, but I can't help but feel like she appreciates my quilting! *lol*
** Exciting news ... while typing up this post, I just had a call from our cabinet maker. He's just doing the last bits of our kitchen cabinets, and they're going to be installed sometime next week! How neat! I've been looking forward to more cabinet space for a long time! I'll share pictures when they're in! **
Happy Friday the 13th everyone! 13 is my lucky number, so it's sure to be a great day! x o x
