We had a mid winter Xmas lunch at our place on Saturday. It was nice to have family and friends over, and no commercialism like at real Xmas time. I didn’t take any pics while everyone was here, but I did take a pic of our Mid Winter Christmas tree
I’ve been sewing like mad on some dress orders I’ve had, in time to pay for our up coming trip. I added some applique to one of the dresses, and made 3 more, which were all delivered today. The red ones were a big hit!
Some of the other clothes I made were delivered last week, I got an email from the customer saying her daughter was wearing her dress to bed, as she’d refused to take it off. Now that’s good feedback!
I’m hoping the Spring Mini Quilt for me will be here soon, and some more FQ’s that were for a swap, although I can’t complain about things being late, as I’ve just let one group I’m in know I’m now running late (well, technically if I finish sewing tonight I won’t be late). I’m thinking about pulling out of one of my quilting bees. I’m now in 5 quilting bees and 1 round robin, and feeling slightly over committed. Also I think i have to rethink the fabric I was going to send for the Sew Kid bee, flannel is just too bulky to post, it will take the postage from $3 to maybe up to $8, times that by 14 and it’s looking very expensive. The stash busting bees are easy as I can send fabric in a small envelope. I guess that’s the price I pay to be involved with all the great quilters i meet online. Anyway enough moaning, here’s a pic of one of the four blocks I need to make for the round robin
To leave today’s post on a bright note, one of the lovely ladies on The Nappy Network sent me a parcel of fabric. A bunch of different sizes and patterns, it was fantastic to get such a nice surprise in the post. I’ll have to do the same for someone else.
