I can see it is going to be a busy week. School holidays have started for my son and he will be home for three long weeks. The weather is cool - dank and overcast which really does not help in terms of entertaining them. I find that if I keep myself busy whilst the teens are home, they too will occupy themselves.
I have spent some time practising my free-motion quilting. I cannot believe how much thread I have used, not only have I used all the left-over bits of bobbin thread that were in my drawer, but more, much much more!
I have come a long way with free motion quilting, but still need some more practise. This just does not come naturally to me. I still need to learn how to navigate my way around the quilt rather than getting stuck in a corner with no way out!
I have also prepared a little care package for a blogger friend. Mel from From Little Things has just experienced a great loss, one that I am sure many women can readily identify with. Please go and read her moving post. Mel is also getting ready to make her first quilt.
And my swap fabric posted in Sunday Stash - Urban Chicks (Paint by Number - Birds) is on its way to Washington!
Of course, a little sewing has taken place as well. Here is a sneak peak at what I have been working on:
Some fun blocks made up at random. I hope to make several of these and then piece them together using some bold white sashing fabric.
So much I want to do, so little time.
