am I done yet???




g'day petals

well as promised here is an updated pic of the Tumbler/Thimble swap that my dear friend Bernadette and I are doing.. just an update if you are passing through... Bernadette and I have um, quite the civil war / 19th repro stash and we decided to do a swap.. and thought a charm square style of quilt would be sweet..

I have had my rows together for a few weeks, but the other week after I threatened to toss my sewing machine in the bin, I thought it could be a very good idea to put the project away.

Now I now you are thinking to yourself 'but Lissa, you said you were getting a new machine???'.. well yes this IS true, but I thought I'd better finish some of the stuffs I had started on the old machine first.. so the first cab off the ranks is the tumblers.. I should of made it another tumbler longer (bugger) so I think I might need to just add a wee float or a wee border on it.. what do you reckon?? with a fat person sleeping under it, well lets just say I might need a big bastard of a float! LOL

I am enjoying this long weekend... I did want to get to Sydney yesterday for lunch, but Missymoo had a sleepover and I had to pick her up, and I'd been to Sydney the two previous weekends for Missymoo's dancing (she got 2 trophies and 4 ribbons, not bad for only 8 dances) and I am plain wore out from working and being a mum at the moment..


thought I'd leave you with a pic of Bailey the Wonderdog, it was her birthday yesterday, we got her a snazzy new collar and a new mattress for her kennel and a few treats.. this isn't the best pic of Bailey the Wonderdog, her face is smooshed up, but she is by far the laziest doggie I have ever met.. she hates going for walks.. she hates going for drives in the car IF she has to get out at the other end (only likes going home??) and she loves cat food...

speaking of cats, heres a cutie pic of the evil one who lets us live in his house..






take care petals..

Bailey is looking very cute too and looks a good match for my fat lab Saffron. Now I don't have to finish my tumbler quilt cos I know what it's gonna look like! vbg Nice to see you back blogging again.

LOVE that charm quilt! I really do adore charm quilts; maybe it's time I started one of my own.

We have several cats, and one of ours has the same attitude. He only lets us live here because he can't open the closet where the cat food lives. LOL!

Happy birthday to Bailey! :D

Oooh, that tumbler quilt is a beauty! I've had that pattern on my to-do list since I started blogging. Sigh. The list since I started blogging has become huge!

Happy Birthday to Bailey the Wonderdog!

It's been a while, nice to see your back and what a beautiful quilt.

Katy said...

Fantastic quilt! LOVE it.
Your cat does look quite evil, like he is ready to jump out at any moment and dig his claws into your ankles and never let go. I quite like that in a cat, my cats are no1; stupid and this week jumped into the bath just as I was getting out and no2; too wrapped up in his own world to care who I am.
Oh, I am just pooping in from Jodie's - saying hi!

Bailey the wonderdog is gorgeous! I think a border would finish the quilt nicely.

Your quilt is beautiful. I have the template, I have started to cut some fabrics. I just need to get on with it (I want one too).
