Chilled out

I honestly can;t remember the last time I had such a lazy weekend: it's been wonderful!  I had a night out on Friday as one of our team was retiring, there were about 20 of us went out for something to eat and we had lots of laughs.
And the weather... how lovely has it been! But not at all condusive to a lot of sewing!

 All of this I did last weekend, but didn't get to blog.  This is the (nearly) completed quilt for the Farleigh Hospice ladies.  I basted it and FMQ'd it in big loops, I was really pleased with how it turned out. Just need to bind it
 And then I got out my spray baste again (amazing stuff) and made a start on my Stained quilt (please dont look at all that ironing on the side!!)
 I also started to quilt it, which you can just about see: I am just going to do waves going across, as this has a seaside theme

I bought a kindle this weekend, just the basic one. I am hooked!! I have downloaded heaps of freebies, one of which I have finished this weekend and was unputdownable. I need to make a cover before the next weekend as it will be great for the train, when I am feeling sick with nerves & excitement......!!


  1. Kindle's are just the best thing ever...must remember to charge it well before I leave home, I'll be reading mine on the plane, train and oh, there's no automobile :O(
    what freebie were u reading??
    see you on the weekend :O) wowowo

  2. The quilts are coming along nicely! Very cool fabrics used for your Stained quilt =D

  3. Glad you got some chilling time, Catherine. Love both quilts - the stained was so appropriate for this weekend's sunshine!

  4. These are both such great quilts! Glad to hear you are relaxing.

  5. The quilts look great. See you soon.
