Recovering from craft day.
The sewing day was a great success, when I get that magical thing called time I will take photos of the day's achievements. Yummy soup, yoyo biscuits, cake and Kim's apple cake really topped it off. I always appreciate good ideas for fetes and markets so you may appreciate some of ours as well.
Dear, dear DH has taken the kids off to footy training tonight, it is pouring rain here, we have now had close to 2 1/2 inches in the week and he has called a temporary halt to working the ground as it is sticky. It has been a while since that happened ! But great that I have scored a minute to blog.
I mentioned that DD has gone crazy on Elvis on Tonya's blog and she sent me a great link to equilter where they carry everything and Elvis included. Purchased a few things there, it will be interesting to see if they are as efficient as the Fat Quarter shop, who normally have things here within the week.
I will be sure to share Elvis when he comes. I actually cleaned to Elvis today, Mum gave the kids some old LP's and when I put them on it was just like I was 10yo on a Saturday afternoon again! I have Elvis on Cd but the order isn't "right" and they don't have the familiar crackle and you can all tell me I am odd but some things need to stay the same!
I was asked about the Amish style cushion in my new table post. Here is a better picture. It is evidence that I actually have hand-quilted. This is one of 2 times, the other time I was in bed with the 'flu and bored (which is actually the quilt behind it). My DS grabbed this as soon as I made it, but as his room is now overflowing with home made stuff (and his stuff) I stole it back. Hmmm, now I look closely it is slightly out of focus and you can't see all my little quilted patterns but calves and tea beckon so it will have to do. Cheers, Tracey
Oh, I was a little proud of a saying I came up with on Nadine's blog about a quilter's retirement home (worth a read!)so I thought I would share, I don't think I have stolen it but you had better tell me if I didn't make it up-it's possible!!
"Old quilters never die, they just feel increasingly sew and sew!" (I am presuming that Australia is not the only country where people feel a bit 'so and so' on occasion.)
Have a great day, Tracey
