Sleepy Sunday

Recipe to a perfect Sunday morning. Lazy sleep-in, followed by bacon and egg pies (no pictures, trust me they rocked), tea, trashy tv, hand quilting, more tea…Of course none of it would be as special without The Son.

To come? Homemade split pea and vegie soup and later, afternoon tea at Al M’s. *Sigh* perfect.

This quilt top I’ve had finished for over 3 years I think. I’m no Jane Brocket when it comes to quilting and my style has changed a little since I made this top, however I think this will be a nice couch snuggling quilt. I still suffer from frozen quilt syndrome. What’s that? Well it’s that making tops is ok, it’s the QUILTING that’s terrifying. I have a machine that will cope now, it’s just in my head! So I did chicken with this quilt and am hand-quilting it, next one, on the machine. I promise.

    I used to have a machine that just could not handle quilting and it was sooo frustrating! Needless to say, I had lots of “tops” around,too! But if you’ve got a good machine now, I would definitely have another go…you will not regret it! My new(super-expensive but totally worth every penny!)machine works like a dream through all those beautiful layers of fabric! Keep sewing and crafting for us!

    Hey there! Thanks for posting my wonky log cabin tutorial on whip up. At least I think it was you. I’m not sure how the whole thing works. I’m not sure how I’ve not stumbled into your blog before. I’ll be back! Thanks again.

    The quilt looks beautiful! Can’t wait to see the finished product. I totally understand ‘frozen quilts” I have a cupboard full of them!
