I had a lovely shopping and lunch outing with Elyte, Anne, Annie and Robyn yesterday. Elyte had ordered me a 12" mini quilt frame and I got to pick it up yesterday. We arranged to meet and visited a couple of patchwork shops- Tranquility and Patchwork of Essendon. It was such a lovely day out- the mandatory excessive laughing and chatting took place and some retail therapy as well. I had such a great time meeting up with all of you!
I promised I would take a photo of my frame with something on it but the only one I had that would fit received some rather negative feedback from the man of the (dog)house, at first I thought he was hurtfully talking about the frame but no it was my handiwork that was being critiqued- how rude. It was promptly removed and may need to find a new home. Good old doily is standing in till I make my mini.
Elyte has already started her mini for the frame so I need to get a wriggle on and work out what I will make for my frame. For now this is what it looks like....
At Essendon Patchwork I was amazingly not tempted by any fabric but they had a lovely collection of little milk jugs. The price was too good to pass up so one came home with me as it was so pretty. Robyn also shares my love of milk jugs but she was very good and didn't indulge. I quickly moved away from her in case her 'goodness' was catchy!
Last night I worked on my Down in the Garden. Doesn't look like much but it was constant stitching.
Better get thinking on that mini too!
