When I look at the end result of yesterday's stitching, I keep thinking I must have been all kinds of lazy yesterday, but then I look around at the house sparkling, and recall Amy's return to netball for the year and I remember what actually took place yesterday.
She played two games last night, so from 7pm to 10.30pm life became netball. Ohhh, and I'm not sure if it was a good move, but I'm coaching the school team now ... and they won last night! By one goal shot in the last 15 seconds of the game ... a real nail biter!
Before I go on, I have to say this - to my wonderful friend Linda in San Jose, please look away now, this post has Thimbleberries content!!
And this is what I started yesterday - a cute little table topper! I think I may be becoming a bit ADD with my stitching in the last couple of weeks, I'm feeling like I'm starting a whole lot of new things all of a sudden, and I don't normally do that ... but it's been really fun!
Melanie mentioned the other day that I still have time to put a Valentine project together, which jogged my memory about a pattern I received as a gift last year. It's super cute, and shouldn't take too long to put together, so I started cutting yesterday. I have a LOT of Thimbleberries scraps left over from club over the years, so it's going to be wonderful to use up some of it.
I managed to make up the triangle sections for the bottom of the hearts ... and that's it! But it's a start, right! I'll be able to get a lot more done today - and I'm sooooo looking forward to to the applique component - I haven't done any for a while, and I love it! This will be the first time I've ever made a Valentine quilt!
Well, that's it from me today, I'll look forward to showing you the next installment of my new project! Have a great day!
