I had such a lovely day today. It was my day to demonstrate at the SA Quilters Guild show. My session was from 10am until noon, and I was working on needle-turn applique. You've already seen the project I worked on - the Christmas bauble mat. I made up some heart shaped 'baubles' this time.
The morning went very fast, and before long I was able to travel through the length and breadth of the vendors mall. I was really restrained with my purchases this year. I finally picked up my very own copy of 'Nearly Insane'. I've been dying to find a copy, and I predict that you'll see a few blocks before long. Why I would even dream of this before I've finished DJ II, I have no clue, but some things just can't be explained. I also purchased the Better Homes and Gardens bag, which is tradition for me. The pile of BH&G bags in my sewing room is blocking out the sun, but there are always such nice treats inside.
And my favourite bit of news: Yesterday morning I was so lucky to be able to meet up with Meredith and Keryn for coffee before work. It was so nice to finally meet them, and the hour that we had to spend together went way too quickly. It's so fun that we're into the same kinds of quilts and fabrics, we like to adopt old sewing machines and so on and so forth. We were able to chatter like old friends. I look forward to catching up with them again and again.
Well, that's it from me for today - I want to do some tidying in the sewing room before I hit the sheets. I'm really going to sleep well tonight!
