Today's Plan!

Right!  Decision's made for today's quilt-a-long!

We're going to practice a bit more of this



on this



Now, this was supposed to  be a sample block  for this quilt, but after one block , no way was I ever going to achive 20 so -  Voila!  One mini!   I think my FMQ is getting better, but a bit more practice will certainly help :-)

With the torrential rain and high winds that we have at the moment, and more forecast for the rest of the weekend, I should be able to carry on the good work tomorrow and make a start on a pinwheel baby quilt out of this



  So all in all rather a full couple of days - and yes Sue, I 've given in and dug out the  Christmas CD  not only to set the mood but also to drown out DH's cries of agony as Wales take on the Springboks at rugby later today  Little bit of a clash of loyalties here for me  having lived in South Africa for 10 years, but I'm sure that  the Land of my Fathers is going have the biggest pull.

Enjoy your quilting and patchwork today. For now it is dry, but we also expect a lot of rain.

Good, glad you got the music out.

Your free motion quilting is looking good. The feathers look nice. I've been practicing too, but the feathers are difficult for me.And I love the cat quilt.

Nothing is better on a rainy day than hiding behind a sewing machine! Hope you had fun today.

You sound super busy, which is good if you're stuck in the house. Like the cat block, but I agree-I wouldn't make 20 more!

Your quilting is coming along nicely. I can see why you might stop at one cat block--talk abut a lot of work! ;-D

Your quilting is very nice--in fact it looks professional. Don't blame you for not making any more cat blocks! I shun the blocks with lots of pieces! Hope you had a fun weekend!
