A nice day to sew

Today I had a sewing day with a girlfriend and worked on my QAYG pirate quilt/s. Another busy day, don't know if I will make another QAYG quilt. I'm sure I could have made 10 quilts in the time it's taking me to make these two. I worked out I have spent a minimum of 30 hours on them. There has been a lot of colourful adjectives used to describe the quilts lately lol.....I almost finished the borders on one of the quilts today and I must say, I'm beginning to like the quilt, but not the process. 

                                              

Since starting these quilts, I have found additional processes/tutorials which would have made the process better, isn't that always the way...sigh.....

                                       

Hopefully only one or two sewing days to go and they will be finished...yay!!!! No hand sewing of late as  I'm madly crocheting my ripple quilt each night...Need to finalise some swap items for posting this week...ohhhh exciting.... Don't you just love swaps??????

A lovely engagement

Last weekend my gorgeous daughter had her engagement party. The setting was gorgeous but the rain was not. We had 3 marquees, fairy lights, white tablecloths, candles, roses and white frames with various pics of the happy couple. The atmosphere was great and I can't wait to till the wedding in June next year! Congratulations Tarÿn and Scott!!!!



Each night I have been madly doing my ripple quilt and I'm halfway now. I haven't done any hand sewing which is not like me at all, think the arrival of the Cosy quilt, Chunky bag patterns and wool from Attic 24 has something to do with it, I'm keen to get this one finished.
Previously I had been sooo far ahead with my Natures Journey SAL that now I'm working on the current month....sigh...that didn't last long lol
