I started writing a post about all the wonderful quilting type activity that went on at Maison Pyjamas over the last three days. The fact you aren't reading that post signifies that I didn't actually finish anything to show off. Rest assured significant progress was made. I got two quilts to the "I need to hand sew this binding on to the back of the quilt" stage. Hopefully I can have them both finished by this time next week. That would be good for making a dent in my WIP list. I've just about given up on the windmill quilt since I've been doing everything I can to avoid it. I'm thinking about sealing it in a light proof airless box and pretending it doesn't exist.
At least the postie has been good to me.
I ordered some fabrics online a few weeks ago and this glorious stack of yumminess arrived in the mail late last week. I've always wanted to make a black and white and red quilt and it looks like 2011 will be the year.
Vesuviusmama recently went on a fabric buying spree and decided to share the love with a giveaway. All you had to do was guess how much she spent while she was going crazy buying practically the entire contents of a quilt shop that was closing down. I won because I'm a maths genius. These lovely 1/2 yards of fabric arrived in the mail last Friday. I'm thinking Dresden quilt fans for the Dresden quilt that is on my ever growing list of " must make this" quilts. Thank you Vesuviusmama.
And finally, I got my first Christmas card this week from Aunty Henny and tucked inside was this gorgeous Christmas mug rug. Now I can be all festive when I drink my coffee and tea at work (while I'm counting down the days until my holidays!) Thank you Helen. It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas.
Like the crew of the Flying Dutchman, I am forever doomed to be hand sewing binding to the backs of quilts this week. I hope your week is more exciting.
