When it rains it pours

Well here it is the do your head in, never gonna make another one again quilt. All finished after 15 months of sewing and on the bed. I looks very nice and i am very pleased with it, but i am also glad it is over. The feral house has not been around the last week or so as we have all been flat out and sick and just plain exhausted. So hopefully this week will be a more sedate pace and more enjoyable. I still have one more quilt to pin and quilt so hopefully this weekend might be the go, other wise the sewing machine will have another break.
Well enjoy yourselves and be good if not be good at it. Ciao.

Another one bites the dust.

I have finally finished mygirlfriends baby boys quilt that i started almost 12 months ago, this is called Ollie's Quilt, i am almost half way through my UFO pile and have started sewing down the binding on my Kelidoscope quilt so hopefully that will be done and dusted by next week too, or hopefully with everything going according to plan the weekend. The past few days here in the palace have been very hectic, with 3 days of speedway, cleaning, and general dogs body business not much sewing has been done. The next few days are no exception to the rule either, but hopefully next week the pace of life will slow down and i will be able to smell the roses. We had some wonderful rain here on the weekend and the garden is looking green and the whole place looks refreshed, although my roof did leak and i was not happy but i suppose it is hard to know when you have holes in your roof when it doesn't rain much. well i think it is time for coffee now so i'll say ciao and happy sewing.
