Yesterday was spent doing massive housekeeping as we had visitors last night for coffee and cake.
Today I was allowed to have a guilt free day to myself as the male family members of the family evacuated to do manly things. I had wanted to go to the Quilts in the Barn but couldn't find anyone to come with me so I spent the day crafting!
I have gone a little Christmas stitchery crazy and wanted to hunt out some patterns when Allelujah! I found a pattern that I had thought was gone for good. I was sent a mazazine from the States from a swap partner that had the cute 12 Days of Christmas by Anni Downs. I have looked through all my magazines and cuttings to try to find this several times over the past year without success as I couldn't remember the magazine it was in. I am so happy.
Here is my list of achievements for the day! (besides eating a piece of yummy pav and baked cheesecake)
I stitched some of the blue and white disappearing nine patch blocks and yes I committed to a design.
I got to prepare two blocks for the 1st day of Christmas in two different fabric colour ways. I really enjoyed putting these together and look forward to stitching them. Sorry the pics aren't too fantastic.
Having big issues loading photos tonight!!
I have also finished block 2 of my Boys story quilt. Boy nothing wanted to go right. I had to do heaps of unpicking and recutting but we got there in the end.
Hope your weekend saw you doing something you like.
