How naughty of me to take a whole week to reveal that ... we were in Singapore!

We stopped into Raffles Hotel more than once for the obligatory Singapore Sling, it would have been irresponsible not to! They're the 'thing to do' and mighty delicious as well :-)

We had a great time with our friends, and we've declared that we'll be back. The girls and I shopped pretty hard, this time we didn't even nudge our baggage allowance - but of course I managed to find 7 pairs of shoes to come home with me.

In quilty news, I've finished quilting one whole border of the NI quilt, so I'm definitely on the home stretch. I'm really looking forward to finishing now ... chatter soon friends :-)

Where in the world??

I know many of you already know this answer to this one ... but play along anyways ...

Where in the world were we??

Progress, and thank you!

Thank you so much to everyone for your wonderful help with Prue's fabric search - crisis averted and she has enough now to complete her border. Once again - thank you!

I have been madly hand quilting away, and with good progress - sadly though - endless hand quilting does not make for good blog fodder, so I've neglected you all, but you know that once this project is finished, I'll be back to blogging more regularly.

Here's a little area on the quilt that I've completed out to the zig zag border.

The border area should be much faster to quilt - well, at least I'm hoping so anyway!

And this is the last of the blocks I have to quilt - one little half block - with any luck I'll have it done tonight and I can concentrate on the border. Once the blocks are finished I'll swap over to my square 'hoop' for the border - much easier! But for some reason I don't like the square one as much when I'm working on the middle of the quilt. I don't question it ... I just go with it :-)

Lots of chores to get done today, and then hopefully some stitching time this evening ... must get busy!

Fabric Hunt

Just a quick pleading post tonight: My dear friend Prue is desperately looking for a particular fabric, and I thought I'd put up a quick shout out to see if anyone can help out.

She's looking for this fabric: It's from Kaye England's Back Home Again collection. A yard would be wonderful if you can spare it, and we'll take care of all costs.

The fabric has kind of a linen look to it - if you have it, you'll know what I mean :-) Thank you so much for reading! xox
