Last Friday Sarah sent through some photos of "Tessellation", which she had just finished quilting. It looks so wonderful and I'm very much looking forward to it coming home. The quilting design is "Squares All Around".
Very busy weekend with little ChaCha staying over for 2 nights. We washed the car, vacuumed the sewing room floor (ChaCha wearing my high-heeled orange sandals as one does to vacuum), folded washing and a few other jobs with lots of playing in between and then entertained visitors for dinner (the guests brought dinner - they can come again!).
There has been some sewing and 4 quilt tops are ready to go to the quilter this weekend.
The backing fabric for the Kaleidoscope and Dresden Plate cot quilts is so cute.
On Friday night I started sewing "Clambake" pieces together. This quilt goes together very quickly once the layout is sorted and it was together by Sunday night.
I had cut out too many pieces for the lap-sized quilt and, after cutting out another 12, had enough to make the cot-sized "Clambake" as well - this went together in 3 hours! Will definitely use this pattern again. The fabric colours are showing up much better in this photo.
After months of preparations and very hard work (by others) we had lots of excitement at work yesterday. Our main foyer was used for an event where HRH Prince Andrew, The Duke of York KG, was the special guest. He was a guest of the University for the whole day and going by the photos in the local newspaper, it looks as though he really enjoyed his visit.
The event MC was also a VIP - Adam Gilchrist (legendary Australian wicket keeper/batsman) is a University Ambassador and such a great person. He spent ages with the school students attending the event and enjoyed playing with the virtual reality equipment.
Last night Michael sent through a photo with the caption: "Bikie gang terrorises locals" -hilarious!
