The fireworks woke me at midnight - oh, yes, I thought Twenty-Ten - then snuggled back to sleep under this quilt I had put on our bed. I had a big bedding change and decided this old favourite would keep us warm until I decide to have a another change. I have shown it briefly quite a while ago, hand-appliqued, broderie-persed, hand-quilted - somehow feels gentle and comforting, meant to be slept under.
Here's the centre medallion - sometimes I wonder how I put so much fine hand-quilting into this quilt - those days have gone, I'm sure, but it was such a joy then and still makes me happy!
Oh, I needed the energy only sleep can bring - it's too long a story to tell - yesterday I took Heidi and Byron to see this wonderful movie - I know they are only 5, but they did look after Nanny as we watched for 2 hours 42 minutes, a long time sporting our 3D glasses. They were able to settle me at the jumpy bits and explain the story to me when I couldn't understand!
Pure magical technology, a story of fantasy with a lot of pathos and of course our beautiful Sam Worthington, a young man who grew up locally - a great actor and oh, so gorgeous! The littlies are still with us, a few chores to do and then we will think about what the day will bring!
We have a new couple joining us in Blogland, Maggey and Jim of The Quilting Couple - do pop over to say hello if you get a chance - Maggey is taking her tentative steps forward, so let's be there for her!
