The hand stitching is a wrap.... If you remember from a previous blog I mentioned last year I attended a workshop at Hetties in Adelaide with the lovely tutor Jenny kingwell ... Well the needle turn is finished and the blocks are on the display sheet ... So over the next few days or weeks the checkerboard blocks need to be cut stitched and stitched again then.... The quilt assembly can begin .... Looking forward to a nice herbal cuppa tea .... So until next time .... Cheers Marc

Wow .... Order this last week . In the mail today.... Looks great will have to make a nice orange and cinnamon cuppa of tea and put my feet up and have a browse after work this evening .. No I'm not starting a new project yet....
I sticking to my course and finishing off a few UFO's... Still no harm in browsing ....
I am each evening plodding along with the Jenny kingwell quilt
I am hoping next Tuesday .... Australia Day as I don't have to work this year on the local event .... To achieve several blocks on the quilt .....

Well maybe .... Very warm here in the sunny Riverland, the home is once again empty nest ... So for the last few hours played catch up and played the domestic queen and pulled the weeds out ... Now enjoying a cold drink and nice shower... Going to put my feet up and think about what I might do with these threads I picked up a few weeks ago from the local op shop

Sunday .... Up early ..... Why you might ask..? Well the forecast is hot today, so up early played the part of domestic goddess for awhile.... Then off to the local Sunday market.... Where local produce purchased .... But the weather was so hot that both stall holders and attendees where down.... One of the stall holders is a friend and relies on this income ....not a good day.
Currently under my outside verandah it is 42.6c. Not a cool day at ALL.?
So DH and I are not doing any paving today..... It can wait
What else can I do .... Let me think (chuckle)
Having attended a Jenny kingwell workshop several months ago .... So a great day to sit in the air conditioning and do some hand stitching
Until next time I off to get a large glass of cold water and stitch cheers marc

As previous blog entry DH took a little longer than he thought so I made my cuppa and stitched away and got the binding done..... Ya hoo .... I had several months ago made a bag to match the quilt fabric from the left overs
Now of to start watching Breathless on ABC. Cheers Marc
DH and I are working in the front yard today .... Chipping off concrete from some old bricks from the old home and laying them down as pavers in the front yard..... DH has been called away for about a hour to help his dad out.... So I am taking a break also and getting a few stitches on the binding on a another quilt back from the guru might also slip in a cuppa ...... Cheers marc
