So Far , So Good Monday

Welcome, my friends!

It is overcast today and we are expecting some rain - again! I must say the garden is loving it, but it is just so very humid outside, I can't breath out there! So we are inside with the aircon going, to suck out the moisture from the air.

Just got home from the fabric stores, where I bought some zippers for some purses I want to make, and fabric to quilt on with!

Here is how I am going with my finishes :-

Last Thursday, I finally got my tumbler quilt pin basted, with assistance from Tanya where I went to her home for our sewing morning.  So today I will start the quilting on it - don't know what I will do yet, but I am leaning towards some large triangle type lines  or something. Hopefully this will be finished soon!

Alan's Quilt top is now completed, and I am still alive!  I truly wanted to kill myself when I was piecing this top, it was far too fiddly and precise - though mine is not quite as precise as it should be, and I DON'T CARE!!! I bought some extra maroon fabric to put a wide border around it, to give eyes a spot to rest and not cause cross eyed blindness in everyone!  I am so very glad that this is almost finished!

The half square triangle shawl for my friend is almost complete!  I wasn't sure about the really dark blue in the border, so I put the light blue row before I started the V stitch lace pattern, and I now think it works well. Do you have thoughts on that?

Well I am about to trot off now and go do the quilting on my tumbler quilt.

Have a good week and take care, won't you!
