I have altered trousers, shirts and made curtains all week and I'm pleased to say it's nearly all done. Just one jacket to adjust and I'm a free woman ! Sometimes I have a lot of work to do and other times I'm quiet. It just seems that it all comes at once and then I get myself a bit stressed trying to get it all out of the way. I would prefer a steady stream of jobs but that's not usually how it happens - still beggars can't be choosers - lol !!
I did actually finish the baby sisters choice quilt - all quilted and bound and away to it's new home. Apparently Jenny (my mum's hairdresser) was delighted with it so that was good. I used hobbs wool wadding and it was so cuddly. I hope baby Chloe will love it as she gets older.
Here are pictures.
I only did very simple straight line quilting as to be honest I was a bit pushed for time but seeing as all I do is quilt in the ditch and meandering that was fine - lol ! One of these days I will try to broaden my machine quilting horizons but for now it works for me. I'm far more of a piecer than a quilter. I do like a bit of hand quilting except it frustrates me a bit on how slow it goes.
So that's my week. Oh I did make a few more of those funny zig-zag blocks to use up some of my bigger scraps. You know sometimes that some of your scrap pieces seem to be hanging around forever and you are sick of the sight of them. Well I'm planning to use up some of THOSE bits to get rid. My friend Sue has a birthday soon so this may end up as a quilt for her - who knows. Depends how the wind takes me :-)
Thanks for all the good wishes for Jason on starting his new job. He was really surprised by all the lovely comments. So far he's getting on really well - thank goodness.
Last here is a photo of 2 of my 3 cats. This is Kasper (grey) and Tizer (tabby). They are only young and when they get together are quite naughty but such good fun. Tizer will only ever stay in our garden when it's sunny but Kasper is a bit braver and ventures out to the field at the back of our house.
