Must be Mad Monday!

Well, you'd think so .... my day went a bit like this ...

Morning...

I finished quilting my Arcadia Hexi Park which was loaded up on the frame before Festival


I'm really pleased with this quilt 


rather than doing an all over pattern I chose to be very specific with the quilting


Feathers in the squares


and penguin feathers in the hexi's


the back shows the texture left by the quilting


Afternoon...

The twins got a clean, brush up and oil


oh, and they got to meet each other too!  :) 

Evening ...

I loaded up this top, which is to be a tablecloth


and gave it a quick meander all over


with Rainbows Allspice  ... magic thread!
this top belongs to a freind  :) 

The frame is clear again ready for a special (sssshhhhh, it's a secret) job!

and I headed down to the allotment to do a little harvesting


don't want these spoiling in the rain ...

I also came home with a kilo of french beans!  The usual  half a dozen courgettes and red onions too.
Hmm, I see some blanching in my immediate future!

in the mean time ...

Happy Quilting!

Hey Trudi!
Just popped in to say what amazing quilting you've done! I'm so pleased I saw it up front at the show. The most intricate quilting I've ever done is "writing" names and dates into quilt blocks as I quilt them. You take the cake! Well done you.
