Of course work doesn't care whether you have a cold or not, so I plodded my way through this lovely Christmas hexagon quilt that Lorrie asked me to quilt for her. I borrowed Catherine's "Holly Bells" pattern, only it turned out to be "Holly Berries" instead! Oh well, it's still a Christmas theme and I know Lorrie really wanted some holly leaves on her quilt so it all worked out in the end.
I used a King Tut 1002 thread which is a variegated Christmas red and green. It did look nice. As Lorrie wanted plain quilters muslin on the back the pattern looks great when you turn the quilt over.
Last night I did manage to get a few blocks of my Aunt Grace BOM sewn up. I am making the last two rows at once and need to get a move on. When these are finished then it is assembling the quilt...woohoo!
Yesterday at Tuesday group my friend Eve brought along the bottom fabric as a beginning of making a burgundy quilt for some friends at church who have left the district. We should, of course, have thought of this before they left, but better late than never as they say. I found another nice floral, so now we just need to hunt up a couple of other colours and we can get started. Sticking to a simple pattern so that it will actually get done.
It would not be complete without something from a cat or two. Travis decided he would rather sleep in this old sewing machine case than on the nice comfy batting Kerry put down for him. Then he wouldn't get out when it was time to lock up so Kerry closed the case and carried him home in it!!! It was rather funny, and the daft cat didn't even really mind.
A lovely quote to finish off with...."Friendship is one of the sweetest joys of life. Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend." Charles Spurgeon
