I have been working on J&Ts quilt and have now finished piecing the back and am now trying to decide whether I do the quilting myself (could be interesting) or whether I get it done on a long arm. I would really like to be able to say I had done it all myself but I know my quilting is very poor standard and I want it to look good. Decisions, decisions (I have to get it done by January 2011).
I have a couple more presents finished too. My Mother in laws birthday pressie and my nephews bday pressie (well half of it anyway).
I had a lovely delivery of fabric yesterday from Kimberly at FQS. A quilt kit for the next boy born in the family.
and 5 yrds each of Kona White and Kona Snow
In addition I got the first half of the fabric for my quilt and I have to say the internet doesn't do it justice. You will have to wait for a picture as I am expecting the remaining fabric to arrive this week and I can't just show half now can I. If we weren't watching the pennies I would fil my stash with this collection as it is utterly utterly gorgeous and I plan to add a bit more to the stash in a month of so (if there is any left).
I let Jot open the packages as she was feeling abit under the weather and as soon as they were open she started stroking the fabric - wonder where she gets that from.
My parents arrive on Saturday so most of my sewing time will be spent with them but I hope to get the last knitted face cloth off my needles while they are here.
I am really tempted by the September challenge (see right ==>) as I really need to replace mine, but not sure how much time I will have so I think I will unofficially join and just do what I can.
So I am off now to try to get something else under my belt tonight and to get dinner ready.
Happy September everyone.
