Terry has a package headed her way. Should be there by Tuesday.

Nearly there

The quilt I'm working on is quilted; now I just need to get a binding on it. That's my job for tomorrow. Then it's off to the post office in the week, just under the wire. Been away all week this week with a group of Year 6 pupils at an activity camp, so I'm still feeling a little tired...

Your little quilt is on its way from Auckland to Tasmania - shouldn't take too long to get there, I hope. I loved this one and hope that you do too. Meow!

done and gone

I forgot to post that I finished Susan's quilt and it's in the mail--since Tuesday. I suppose it's better to forget to write the post than to forget to mail it in the post. (or something like that)

Julie, thanks for putting it all together. I enjoyed the quilts I worked on and can't wait for the reveal!

Done, done and done!

First border, second border and quilting.

Yeah! I finished the layering, quilting, and binding of the little quilt. Tough decisions! Had it on my design wall for about a month until I finally took courage. Can you tell that quilting is not my strongpoint?

Nan, I so hope you like it.

As always, the challenge was great fun. Thank you, Julie! Now all I have to do is wait for mine!!!

Got my Robin

Finally got my mail....whew!  a HUGE box of 4 weeks worth of mail, mostly junk. 

I received my Shetland ponies from the Lerwick, Shetland Islands and my Cotton Robin from Julie!

Couldn't be more perfect than that!

Home From The Arctic Circle

We just returned from the 18 day Arctic Circle trip thru Iceland, Norway, Scotland, Orkney, England Ireland and the Shetland and Faeroe Islands. And Stonehenge.

but my mail hasn’t made it to the house yet for some reason.  Hopefully tomorrow I get the big mail dump.  I sent myself a Shetland pony from the Shetland Islands....stuffed of course.  So I should have TWO exciting boxes!



Final Round has arrived!!!!

Yaaay!!!!  I can't wait to quilt this!!!

Finished quilt arrived!

My finished quilt arrived on Saturday from Diana in the UK. Always surprising that something from the other side of the world can get here so quickly - usually faster than something from the US which is half as far away. The little quilt is so sweet and I love the colours that everyone used. Thanks to everyone that worked on it.

(Not quite) ready to quilt in New Zealand

Just when I was starting to worry about its arrival, the quilt arrived today from Rachel. I'd love to jump right in but sadly I am moving this weekend, so it will probably be at least a week before I can find and set up my sewing machine. At least it will give me some time to figure out how to quilt this one - maybe hand quilting is the way to go? Hmmm...
