Touch down......

wonders will never cease........almost got the binding attached to a quilt this morning............just the join to do which I have totally stuffed up so I left it and will do it tomorrow morning when the brain is working............it sure felt good to be sewing...........The Miss from down the road joined me too..........
also fixed a pair of jeans for my brother - wouldn't like to say how long I have had them for but too long.........and the collar of a guensey............my machines aren't known for repairs to clothing...........
onto the good mail........Sonia @ Forever Always Online and I have shared some of our own fabric for our Lucy Boston quilts..........we have been known to have have text chats that go for hours about Lucy........sharing options, asking advice on placement etc.........so nice to receive a cut envelope of pieces to play with.............
sorry for the sideways pics but this is the next Lucy Boston BOM from Sandy @ Shiralee Stitches I just love getting these in the mail............















Recently when I had visitors Kylie and I decided to splurge in a weak moment when we saw the background prints on sale.............we added the brights too.....much nicer looking a bit flat in these pics sorry........
split the order between us............Kate @ Bellas Patchwork was very efficient in mailing this one out............I have a plan but must finish some stuff first.........
ok back to the bookwork...........the family are all out so it is a nice quiet time......
wasn't feeling up to joining them.........
Catch you later.....

  1. You have been busy.... and if you're like me mending always seems to be put aside - only to be found months later buried under more "creative" projects!
