This past week DH has had an unsolvable Internet problem which only seems to affect me when I wanted to access my blog. In desperation this morning I had to sneak in via my other blog... don't think I have told you about my other blog, but you can find it here - Quilts from the Heart SA which is a pictorial record of the quilts our group make for charity. I haven't spent much time on it lately, but hope to bring it up to date soon, when our IT issues are resolved! ANYWAY I wanted to update you on what I have been doing over the last month, so here we go...
Happy Quilting Sue SA.
DS1 starts school on Monday, for the first time...yipee more sewing time for Mummy! Yes I know I am supose to be sad, but I still have darling DS2 at home to keep me company. Hmm, perhaps I wont be stitching up a storm after all, oh well! Happy quilting Sue.
This is Julies FIRST bag! She is in a world of trouble now, as there are quite a few bag addicts in our group! Heather showed Julie how to make this bag, a great size and a great use for left over strips.
On Sunday I finally gave in to DS1 and made him new bedding for Peachy and Puppy...because apparently they are NOT good at sharing and poor Peachy was getting cold!
Then because I lent my spare wheat bag to Mum (just had knee surgery, but opps needs ice not heat!) I then had to make some extras for DS1 and DS2 (with the names appliqued on) because I am not good at sharing!
This beauty is my solution to lower back pain, designed to wear around your waist, it has velcro so it stays on when you get up to make a cuppa/scream at the kids/find your unpicker/answer the phone!
And finally some evidence that this week it has been COLD in Adelaide... And unfortunately the microwave died tonight, so no wheat bag to warm my toes in bed and cold weetbix for breakfast, what a disaster!! Hmm it was only 20 years old...not bad for a moden electrical appliance!
|Celtic blocks - five by Bea, two by me.|
My new iron is going to be great for making the next batch of bias for the Celtic quilt without any burnt fingers.
And the new glue works really well as an alternative to pin basting the bias. It stays tacky for quite sometime, allowing you to position all the "unders and overs" correctly. There are pins in these blocks, but I will be able to remove them tonight as the glue will be dry (it washes out) and it will make stitching so much easier!
Oops this one is the wrong way up, but you get the idea! Happy quilting Sue.
I have finally finished the commissioned photo quilt I was working on. Unfortunately some of the photos started to shatter from be...

Digging around in the various tubs scattered around the house I came across all these completed 9 patch blocks. The 2.5" squares a...
