All going well, today I am going to my patchwork class in Manukau.
I'll be using my awesome Sewing Machine Trolley for the first time. Silly how exciting that is!
Today I'm going to be working on these:
I know there's green and brown in it too, but I'm still calling it the Pink one.
I got a small panel in the post on the weekend from J down Wellington way. I'm turning it into a wall hanging for her.
ABOVE: The panel. I'm taking it along to compare fabric colours with it... so I can think about how to do the border. I'm not going to extend the size of the panel too much, I will probably just add a simple border then quilt and bind it, add the hanging dowel etc.
J, it might take me a little while to get it finished because I am working on a couple of other projects at the same time.
*Christmas presents* for family.
All righty, time to go get me bag packed!
Oh and yaaa! I don't feel sick this morning, so maybe I'm adjusting to the new medication fast! Fingers crossed it continues to be OK.
I learnt something new again today! I was watching 'B' writing WITH A PEN on the front of her quilt, and I asked her how was she going to get the ink off? Was it a wash out one or what?
And she showed me her pen, and how to get it off.
ABOVE: It's a Pilot brand, and you can use the 'rubber' at the end of the pen to gently rub out the ink (not that good on fabric), or you just quickly iron over it... and BOOM! It's gone!
I am gobsmacked. And thrilled to bits to finally know what to use to draw free hand designs or patterns onto fabric, that can be removed so easily after stitching.
I am so very happy to finally be in a Patchwork Group where people share ideas and knowledge... and are really welcoming to new members in their group. I'm staying there forever.
OH and... I told them I was determined to lose 15-20 kilos by Christmas, so they wouldn't let me have any cake for morning tea! I thanked them... *smiles*
Well... a good afternoon and evening. I did a wee bit more sewing, then made dinner for the family, Chicken Rissotto.
It was darn nice too.
Then after dinner I felt a bit bla with the back ache so did nothing else but watch TV.
End of Day: I had a lovely morning at class, and a nice quiet afternoon and evening.
