I said I wouldn't start any new quilts. But I lied. This rainbow stack is getting snipped up....
and sewn back together again....
more sexy hexies are being prepared for holiday crafting....
It's that frantic last minute 'what have I forgotten' time before we go away on our holidays to sunny (please) California.
One thing that was forgotten was to renew Miss G's passport that had expired last year (oops). Thank heavens for the emergency service at the passport office. Possible major frik up averted. Now I just have to buy toiletries, sort out what we want to take, pack it all, and word up the house sitter to make sure all packages are kept safe. Better tidy up for the house sitter as well, hadn't I? Oops, add that to the list.
I've started the new quilt to try and convince myself that I'm not coming down with the flu virus the husband has had for the past week (and been bedridden with it too - something I seriously don't want right now, thank you). Keeping busy keeps me from sitting down and accepting the fact that I actually don't feel very well. No virus for me. No no no - not got the time, thanks. You will not get me to acknowledge you. I shan't. Mind over matter. Sometimes it works. That and a whole lot of caffeine and sugar.
Thank you all so much for the dresden plate love. She is a beauty, isn't she? All down to the quilting, I think. Got to love that Chris.
As for the binding, I've chosen a deep purpley maroon solid. I would take a picture, but I can't remember the safe place I put it. Hmm... It's a nice choice, I'll show you when I find it.
So I think that's it from me for a couple of weeks. I'll still be uploading to flickr so if you miss me (I know - you won't notice I've gone) then you can find me there.
See you in a couple of weeks - hopefully all bronzed and beautiful. And with a suitcase full of fabric ;)
