Best laid plans ...

Today I had a plan ... I planned to quilt all day until around 2.45, I'd then pick up Cameron and go and run Amy's team thru some Netball drills.

Mother nature had different plans:

I took this picture from our bay window, and it actually doesn't look that bad. Wow, pictures can be deceiving. We had a rain front come thru at about midday, and it has been cold and windy. Now, I love the rain, we need the rain, bring it on. Except for on Monday between about 3.30 and 4.30pm.

Normally I wouldn't mind in the least if we missed out on training once or twice. I mind just this week tho ... why?? ... OMG, our girls are in the GRAND FINAL on Friday!! I'm very excited for them, and hope they can bring it home. We'll have just about everyone we know there, so there will be no lack of cheering. Be sure to have your fingers crossed for us all.

I'm still hand quilting away here, so there's not much to show. I'm working my way around the half blocks in the border now, I feel confident I'll have the quilting done in time to hand sew down the binding at quilt group on Thursday.

Well, I'm about to head into the kitchen now to rattle some pots and pans. Hope you're all having a great day! x o x

Good Luck Girls ! Lucky you being the coach. I was a netballer but as I had only boys I ended up helping with Boys sport - like cricket scoring - hehe.

NZ has just had far more rain than we need again.

Rain is grand when it's sorely needed , isn't it?! We are having a wet spell here in the good ole hot, dry south that we need right now--and without there having had to be a hurricane that blew a storm in to us. Of course, people in Kansas are now wishing for dry. Wish we could distribute the moisture around as we needed it!

Good luck to your team! Hopefully the rain will stay away and you can get in some good practice.
