You know in a previous life I was a teacher and had this great ability to stay on task. My how things change… my sewing room is an absolute disaster area, it seems each time I’m in there I’m rushing to get something sewn or, heaven forbid, something other than a piece of patchwork, ironed – shock, horror and as for staying on task – well, that skill has long since left me. I get in there with all good intentions and before I know it the thing I started on is on one side and another is in my hands – oh the shame .
Well, today being cold and miserable I didn’t expect to see many in the shop so I thought I’d spend time next door and do the tidying thing. Well, the thought was the only step towards it I made, instead I found a pathetic ‘flimsy’ that was just crying out to be finished, so what’s a girl to do? Yep, I finished it!
Another little Hunter Star quilt, this time using polka dots in black and white. The first inner border is a little pleat in red. This pleat has become a regular in my quilts and I think gives it a little lift and offers a ‘stop’ to the pattern.
I chose to just meander all over for the quilting and the truth is I just didn’t have the slightest idea of what else to do. Anyway it’s a finish! The room is still a bomb site but at least there is one less thing in there.
Now I need to thank many of you for your kind words and concern about my ankle. It is progressing nicely… the surgeon is absolutely thrilled with his handiwork and couldn’t wait to show us my x-rays on his computer. Sadly he was just the bone man, now some tissue healing needs to catch up with the bones. The local physiotherapist is doing her bit by making sure that all the strapping I need to wear isn’t dull and boring and has me doing all sorts of exercises to lessen the limp that I have been left with.
So that is where we are up to now… my sewing room is still a mess but hey, I got something finished for OPAM – yeah!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
