I have been so busy with my Babette Blanket, I have almost forgotten I am a quilter!
This is a quilt-as-you-go quilt I started perhaps 18 months ago - it has 9 blocks at 24" and I call it my "Not-So Shabby Chic" quilt. I have only a tiny bit of quilting to do on the last block, then the assembly will start. I have mislaid? the fabric for sashing strips, so will have to get to and find it and get the jolly quilt finished. It will be queen-sized when border is added.
The lower picture is a closeup of the hand-quilting. Maybe I will think about finishing it, after I have had a 10-day holiday in Thailand later this/early next month.
The holiday will be most welcome as it has been a cold winter here and at the moment I'm not feeling exactly "on top of the world" - Mum is slipping with every day, so we have a few issues to sort out.
Never mind, here is Uncle Ben having fun with Heidi and Byron at the footy on Saturday - the kids just LOVE Uncle Ben and who wouldn't having this much fun! The little ones had a great weekend with footy then a sleep-over.
I did brave footy for most of the day on Saturday - a bit silly, I think, and it was so cold and windy in the morning - not exactly too sensible when one has a cold/'flu bug! I have also tried to spend as much time as I can with Mum, consequently made quite a lot of progress over the weekend on my Babette Blanket. Must say we are enjoying the coverage of the Olympic Games.
I have itchy fingers today, do hope I feel like doing some machine sewing tomorrow - am keen to do a few more CWLL blocks and also to make cute little pincushions.
It is early afternoon and there is beautiful sunshine out there, so will take the puppies for a walk and "think about everything tomorrow"!
'Bye for now!
