I stayed in my pyjamas all day Saturday (and Sunday) which made it even easier to have my daily Nanna nap. Sometimes I wonder how I last a whole day at work, in clothes fit for public consumption without falling asleep at my desk.
On Thursday morning I finished the tumbler cushion and it went off to it's new home as a birthday gift for one of my favourite people. I really like the finish on this and I adore that fabric collection. It's the same fabric I'm making my grandmother's flower garden quilt out of. I know I did good because I made the birthday girl cry. Often that happens because I'm actually really sarcastic in real life but this time it was because I wasn't. I like to keep people on their toes.
Saturday night ,because I don't have any semblance of a life outside of sewing, napping or working , I decided to stop ignoring the voices in my head that were telling me to make a colour wheel quilt .Of course I had to do it MY way so I made a colour bar instead.
And now the secret is out. The colour bar goes with this. An idea that I kind of , sort of, stole from Little Miss Sunshine from a conversation we had last week. I would like to point out that stealing ideas is the highest form of flattery.
And this past week the top for the Contrary HST quilt got finished and basted.
I started quilting but didn't get far before that went in the too hard basket. I decided to eat chocolate instead. It's a damn shame that's not an Olympic Sport.
Oh and Susan is encouraging me to start another quilt by sending me gorgeous patterns. Pop on over here to see what might be coming to a computer screen near you soon. I have the perfect fabric for this.Naturally.
I'm linking on up to Kate's 15 minute challenge. I'm pretty chuffed at what's been rolling out of my sewing room this week and who knows how long it'll last!
This is my 499th post so whatever pearl of wisdom pops out of my blog next is the big 500. Who would have thought I'd have so much to say?
