On Saturday I met Bernadette from the Quilting B, who what just as lovely as I expected her to be. And look what Bernadette had for me! A pincushion and a bag tidier. I had never seen one before but I am so pleased with it. I've popped a few buttons and bits to show the little compartments, but I will be just perfect for me as I am always swapping bags and popping things into my laptop pockets. There was also some Faded Memories fabric that I begged from Bernadette to help on one of my projects. Thank you so much Bernadette!
I've also left 2 of my quilts with Bernadette to be machine quilted. Can't wait to see how they turn out :) .. but then I have to bind them don't I...
Callum had his grade 2 class mascot, Taz the Tassie Devil home for the weekend. He has been carted to swimming lessons, been photographed in every room of the house and had a few adventures outside. I let the kids go with the camera, so here is Taz meeting Buddy our rabbit and a cute pic with Maya. Don't kids take great pics!
I've finally finished drawing up my design for the I'm a Ginger Monkey Russian Doll swap. I was struggling with it a bit because of the fabric I had chosen. It's great fabric but I just couldn't get it right in my head. I ended up taking some dmc threads across to Ballarat Patchwork and showing Emma what I had, and she then took me over to fabric that matched my thread, and was more in my style. Now I am happy! So happy that I have even joined Rachael Rabbits Cupcake and Tea swap. Who would have thought that July is the busiest time for me at work for me?
I hope it was a great weekend for everyone!
