I know i promised to update a few days ago with glorious pictures, but it’s a good thing to be sewing and not spending time on the computer. Shows I have a bit of real life, though I do love all my bloggy friends
So, where to start then? An update on the school stuff? Had my meeting, the Dean was very prepared, but really there is no solution to Nathan missing Maths, unless they take away the extra courses they gave him. The English teacher was a bit wishy-washy and non specific on what Nathan is getting done, so I will have to follow up with him in a few weeks. The Dean was going to put Nathan on report to try to improve his behaviour (which isn’t very bad, just a wee bit of mucking about), but even that’s not done yet. A bit slack I reckon! I have organised a Maths tutor, so I’ve done my end.
On to sewing? Here’s a pic of Lilly’s cute quilted coasters.. She’s finished 3 so far, just one more to finish.
I finished 3 quilt tops today, they were all almost done, but needed a few rows added. So Emily is done, no pic of that, the girls cot quilt is done…..
And the nine patch is done…. I love this, it’s huge. Ian had to stand on the couch for me to take the pic….
I made Cam a really nice sweatshirt, but it’s now in the wash, but he wouldn’t sit still for a pic anyway.
A few weeks ago I got a lovely package from John (Quilt Dad). We organised a swap for some Amy Schimler prints I wanted (but of course couldn’t get here), and John got some NZ prints. Here’s the awesome fabric that he sent. John, you’ve a star !!
And just to top it all of, here’s some new additions to my stash.
I know most of my International readers would be a bit “meh” at these prints, but you have no idea how hard it is to get designer prints here in NZ. Luckily my local quilt shop is starting to get more of them
