My winter swap quilts
I am seriously considering a second career. Oh wait, as a stay at home (sometimes) Mum , I probably really effectively have another 4 or 5 careers, so lets start over.....
I have made a discovery that consultants out there somewhere could have been paid 100's of thousands of dollars to research, are you ready for the info?
Quilters, are not into heights a-t a-l-l!!!! And ok, I only have the majority of my comments from my last post to back this up...but heck, Governments have gone to war with less researched evidence than that!!
I got a very positive response about my retirement home though, the general feeling seems to be if we got it up and running right now, most of us wouldn't care less about that little specification of "retired". It would be the only retirement home in the world where young(ish) people were dressing up as Mrs. Doubtfire to get in!
But, on a sadder note, no-one wants to come to my dinner party because Quilter's don't like heights...and I don't think it is just because it is hard (read 'death-defying) to show your show and tell, or that your thread drops further than under the couch-I think it may just be a quilting thing, even genetic...you know, like redheads are said to have tempers, blondes are not as clever theoretically-but have more fun... and quilters don't like heights.
Lucky for you I was flexible on the venue!
Huge news...the Australian post office system successfully delivered my Four Seasons Quilt Swap, so you can see it now.
It went to Jodie at Jelly Wares and she says she loves it so I am happy about that.
Here is the finished article. I appliqued the hexagons on-and handstitched down the binding, thankfully my hands survived...thank you gloves!
I showed the calves the two together...no hanging them over the calves that day...Jodie's was on a deadline and I wasn't sure she would appreciate it arriving smelling of manure!
Heinrich the calf is obviously over quilts-he is sticking out his tongue! Models...they are so temperamental, someone should tell them to eat more-it works for me.
Anyway, what a fun swap...thanks to Margaret the organizer, a huge job and very well done, Tracey
