Hectic but fun day today,
Metro Centre this morning and a foray to the M&S food dept., and then sewing at Kim's The new Tilda book had arrived , packed with gorgeous projects, beautifully photographed. There are 3 or 4 projects I must do......
I also bought this lovely "doggy " fabric with little Wendys on, I thought it would make a great cushion for her basket!!
After I have made tea for my 3 starving teenagers, I will have to prepare my entries for Slaley Show tomorrow. This is the first time I have entered my work into a show or competition and I am very nervous about the response, hope I am not making a fool of myself.

In the spring,I bought a moda university kit called "Spring Fling".The colours were not my usual choice but I thought Verity might like it.
The piecing was fine but then I decided to attempt free-motion quilting with my old but trusty Bernina.It was a hard slog and very tough on the neck and shoulders,eventually the quilt was put to one side but it kept glaring at me.
Saturday afternoon I could bear it no longer and decided to finish it.I had bought a pair of white,knobbly, quilting gloves which I hoped would make things easier but I can't say I noticed much difference.
Anyway the quilting is finished, not a very good effort, and the binding is attached ,so tonight the quilt will be FINISHED !!!! Hurrah!
Apologies for poor photo,should have turned machine light off.
