This week has been a full one trying to catch up with life that went on hold while we were in the States. I have a to do list a mile long including a commissioned quilt for Homespun which is due all too soon ... so what do you think I spent my last couple of days doing? Well it certainly wasn't the Homespun project ... oh no that would be far too sensible! Instead I though I would whip up a new project to use as a class project for tomorrows Hettie's Patch class. As always I like to live life on the edge ... I ended up rushing to make up the cushion back & attach the binding early this afternoon ... but all didn't quite go to plan ........
... where do you think the tip of this needle might be? Well your guess is as good as mine because when I finally plucked up the courage to press the button to raise the needle it was no where to be found! But I certainly never had time to waste having my finger x-rayed ... I had a project to finish & a plane to catch! So against my Local Doctor's advice I wrapped up my finger and went about my business ... he did say I should try and keep it up ... but it's the wrong finger for that!!!!!!
Joseph's Coat project ... It’s well and truly time to be posting the tutorial that will help you to join rows 3, 4 & 5 of your Joseph's Coat quilt top ... however because I have been so bogged down with other things I haven't gotten my bocks finished so that I can show step by step photos of the process. This has been worrying me quite a lot but I am hoping that I have managed to come up with a solution .... I’m hoping that there’s someone who lives in the Melbourne area who has completed the 21 blocks needed to finish this step who would be prepared to meet with me so that we can work through this stage together. You would need to be able to meet with me, probably on several occasions, in order to take the step by step photos needed to write the tutorial. You will only need to do the stitching … I’ll write the tutorial. If you would like to do this with me please email me as soon as possible.
Enjoy your weekend!
PS the new project is called In Spring .... I will post a picture once it's finished. At this stage it will only be available as a class project.
