I'm hoping like hell Dante is feeling a bit better today.
He was incredibly miserable yesterday, all he wanted to do was lie on Bex, draped over her shoulder.
It was a tough day for Bex.
Steve has taken today off work so he can help with Dante.
That's not to say Stew and I couldn't or wouldn't help... but they want to care for him themselves and I totally understand that.
Today I am pretty much going to sew for most of the day. I'm hoping Russell isn't home for a bit longer yet, as I have heaps to do before his quilt is finished. It doesn't help that twice since I started his quilt I've had to re-arrange my sewing area!
It just didn't 'work' how I had it... so some minor adjustments needed to be made.
Hopefully I have it right now. I drive myself nuts sometimes... having to re-arrange all the time!
so... you all have a great morning, and I'll be back later.
Whoops! It's much later than I thought. I have been sewing for the past 4 hours!
I had an idea for another aspect of the quilt, so I've been doing this:
ABOVE: Cutting up batik strips, joining them then turning them into little triangular pieces. I have then backed them, sewn them and turned them in the right way... So they are complete as they are, as triangles.
The next phase will be to ..... ha ha! Ain't gunna tell you. You will have to wait and see.
It's something I've not tried before, so I'm excited!
Wow I've done heaps today! While looking at all those triangles, it doesn't appear to be much.
Never mind, I'm thrilled with them ... Donna told me they are called Prairie Points.
I saw a picture on Pinterest of a little baby quilt with them on it, and have wanted to do some myself since then.
I got ONE small section of the first border around the centre of the Fern Quilt done, and will show you tomorrow.
End of Day: a neat day, so happy to have been able to sew all day! I take the weekends 'off' doing housework, so I can sew to me heart's content. Stew picks up the slack... gotta love my man.
