....ohh and pencils and paper

Monday, November 14, 2011

Well another week has begun and I have to say the weather is glorious....just how this Queenslander likes it. I had a very quiet weekend but before I go there I wanted to show you a gorgeous pressie I recieved from SHAY from quilting in my pyjamas. Now if any of you have stitched one of my bags you will know there is nothing to difficult in assemblage as my forte seems to be the drawing and embroidery rather than the patchwork side of things....and to make something that is not FLAT well my mind doesn't venture there. So I was very impressed when Shay posted about these gorgeous little bags she had cute. Then the postie bought me one all the way from Shay filled with some yummy South Oz sweeties which I am very sorry to tell you didn't make it to the photo shoot. Choccie Froggys and Fruchocs oh MY!! So thank you my friend I felt very spoilt indeed to recieve this lovely surprise.
Is this not a cutie??
Well as I said I had a quiet weekend sewing for a couple of comissions I have coming up for Country Threads Magazine and as you know I do a lot of things the old fashioned way so quilt basting was on the agenda. Lately I have been visiting "Memory Lane" quite a bit in the music department and I decided I need a special CD to keep me company while I where a little dancing might assist moving around the table. I chose one of my favourite CD's by the very talented Kiwi girl Margaret Urlich "Saftey in Numbers". I adore every one of the 12 tracks on this CD especially the 1st track "Escaping". I have just about worn this CD out over the years. So Margaret and I grooved away (scary hey) several times through in fact and I got the basting done. So I have included a sneek peek at what I was doing. I also finished off my Santa swappie thingies so I am all good to go.....never thought I would get there. Yippee!!
Grooving with Margaret.
Hmmm! Wonder what this will be?
Well you know where I am headed as it is my Yoga mat out in the Country.
Yoga at Yamba (boy did those people think I was crazy. So did No 1 husband come to think of it) Do I care...not a zot!!!

Have a wonderful day.
