I'd like to welcome my new followers! Feel free to share with your friends.
Soooo….guess what the UPS lady brought me last night??? Woo-hoo!!!! My purple camera has arrived!!! I have finally joined the 21st century!
Now I can show you a few things…
This is my shoe box, get it? S.H.O.E. B.O.X. (*wink*). This is where I keep my pre-cut fabric for hexies.
These are my new quilting and embroidery books that my guys gave me for Mother's Day! Aren't I spoiled???
Last night before bed I decided to do a little rummaging through my fat quarters. I wanted to pick 2 coordinating ones to make the quilted fabric box mentioned the other day. Found them and then started playing in my huge glass button jar(it used to be a Biscotti jar, I love to re-purpose!)…well, the hubs gets out of bed and comes roaring into my sewing room, hollering "do you know how loud you are being?". It never occurred to me that my mindless fondling of all and sundry buttons was irritating the poor man! What could I do? I had to find some matching buttons, and yes, I did have to do it at that moment! He was not amused….
This is sneak preview #1 of the giant hexie quilt. Little blurry I know, I must learn to not breathe when I take pics!
This is sneak preview #2 of the giant hexie quilt! I love those blocks with the kitty cat faces and the one with the cactus.
Had my appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon yesterday. Turns out I have 'early' Arthritis in my knee and nothing can be done about it, surgery-wise. He gave me a physiotherapy exercise to do and told me to lose weight. Not so helpful, but I will do the exercise and cut back on the sweets. Groan…
The kid got called back for a second interview at the cinema, so he is quite excited and so are we!
It is a beautiful day, so I am going to have the hubs unearth my lounger and have a rest under the tree with my new quilting books.
Has anyone got any new books lately? I'd love to hear about them!
Thanks for reading and have a great one,
