Yippee-ki-ay!

Over the weekend I watched four "Die Hard" movies - a friend from work loaned me her boxed set, which I've had for quite a while, so, as I had a fair bit of sewing I wanted to do, I watched/listened to the movies while putting the rest of the Picnic quilt top together.  I left my camera at home so will post photos of Picnic later.  It's huge at 81-1/2" x 99".

Pretty quiet weekend actually.  Elizabeth and Matt were coming to visit but their plans changed at the last minute, so the cake I made is now at work for morning tea - it's delicious.

Apple Streusel cake from Women's Weekly "Classic Cakes" book

The binding drawer is starting to fill up - shows how many quilt tops I have to quilt.


Yesterday afternoon I started cutting out some secret sewing projects using this fabric

Amy Butler "Soul Blossom"

to make something from this book


Need to get a wriggle on with the secret stuff.  Sewing time is very limited in August/September.  Lunchtime stitching is slow-going as time is also taken up with the daily crossword and talking.



sleeps till we go to Melbourne - can't wait!
