my own airing of the quilts

Have not quite been myself lately, took Thursday and Friday off from work, spent most of those two days, doing a bit of studies and as per the last few blog entries catching up on some off my tops needing binding.. Not been a good sleeper the last few months, so up again early this morning, DH has been a gem and cooked a nice breakfast, while I got a few loads of washing done.
Had my very own airing of the quilts today........... these four quilts are in the family room, it is such a nice day here gave them a nice wash and airing ( exposure to the air ) reference the Thesaurus.

Note in this picture the right hand side has captured the other quilt behind it.

Now it off to do the ironing and a few more things around the house done 
Hope you are all having a great LAZY Sunday
Take care .......until next time  Marc 

Saturday night

As previous blog, after watching the movie on TV watched a couple of DVD's out of my collection and finished of the fourth quilt's binding. This one is so simple and basic, unfortunately the photos do not show the great work Liz has embellished on this quilt

Where has today gone........

Had a sleep in this morning until 6.30am, bit of rain for just a few minutes I love the sound of rain in the morning on the roof and then got stuck into a bit of domestic things around the house, while DH made eggs and bacon for breakfast, got a early start to the shops, purchased a new printer, as the old one had trouble remembering how to work.

Had the dear grandson for awhile mid afternoon, 8 months old today and has just learnt to shuffle along the floor, forgot how tiring little ones can be............ had to have a grandma nap after he left.

Started the binding on another quilt tonight, while watching a movie, on the local TV channel.

 Have two quilts at the wonderful Liz’s for her do her magic on, hope to get them back next week and if my studies and work committments are up to date hope to get the binding on them within the next couple of weeks (will not be holding my breath), so much happening in the next few weeks at work.
Hope you all had a great day, with family friends and pets
cheers marc

Another one down

Sat up and watched a movie tonight while stitching the binding on number 3 of 6 


 Photos really don't do the colour of this quilt justice

Cheers Marc

Four of six, up late last night, so much going on the the head at the moment not sleeping that well.
My quilt holder not around this morning (chuckle).
Off to have some breakfast, then do some studies (yuk) maybe by tonight might be three finished out of six (ha ha)

hope you all have a great day

One Down Five to go

Reference last post............  6 tops sent off for Liz in Loxton to embellish, now have 4 back, today spent the day cutting and sewing the binding on them this morning ...... then this afternoon watched 4 DVD's while I finished sewing the binding down on one. Felt great to have needle and thread in hand. has been awhile.

If all goes well .......... might start another one later this evening.

Cheers Marc

Has been awhile since the last blog entry, no excuses............... but between, working, studies and family.............. have not found the time  (more like the energy) to  do any quilting, but two weeks ago had to move a few things around in the quilting room, and found 6 tops ready for the quilting, sent two tops off to have quilted and Liz has once again excelled again when I picked them up yesterday.
After a slow start this morning, bit of a sleep in, nice laying in bed this morning listening to the rain on the roof. A few domestic duties out the way,  got around to cutting the binding strips.
Hopefully if all goes well this afternoon while the boys are watching the Football grand final, I will get around to sewing the binding on. 

will have show and tell when I get the binding on ............  Cheers Marc
