I did a very small amount on the border of one of my POTC blocks - am up to the fourth and fifth rows...am sewing those ones together in a double line - then I will sew the third row onto that....... there
Andrea and her brother Patrick busy in the kitchen
Andrea cooking Monday nights dinner...she did a great job!
The wine was mine - not hers :)
Good news and bad.
The good news is Mal at last has an answer to his pain problem...the bad news is - it is a benign tumor in his spine. The Doctor doesnt think its malignant as he would have been paralized by now...
but he needs an operation ASAP to prevent that happening, so that is in the very near future.
As the tumour is growing - the pain is worse each day.
So ... sewing time is still a mystery to me as I still have my Nurses hat on ..but I am intending to try to get to the FNSI at least.
On a lighter note....
When Andrew was here over the weekend, we were telling him about our frog that spent any sunshine during the day sitting on the rocks...
So he named it Vodka - on the rocks :) :)
Vodka is very timid and jumps in the pond if he sees us coming.
Also doing an online QW couse , which is again time.
My apologies if I have not answered some comments...
Catch up again if I actually get something done :)
Andrew, Andrea's father ( and my eldest DS ) Andrea , Patrick ( Andrea's brother) and Mal watching the performance of Andrew's radio controlled plane, which he brought up with him for the weekend. The video is also one of its flightsover and around our house. It was such a beautiful day!
I have also been doing some of my homework for the Quiltwhispering classes - and playing with Photoshop.
Fortunately my back allows me to stand easier than sit...so I have been able to do this at times.
Now I have ironed a 6" border of freezer paper- under the fabric to try to work out how and what to add in that 6"s
I need to work out which part of the design to use as a repeat.
Will take a while to think out and to put it on the fabric - IF I can work it out.
DH still has his pain problem, but does small things as he can.
Andrea has been off sick for a week...so we are a household of people looking out for each other :) and doing what we can.
My DH and I slowly got some wood, canvas and cotton wadding together ..plus invested in a staple gun... and I have made a nice firm ironing surface - with many thanks to Sharon Schamber's very informative video on how to make one.
The next one :) :) the wood will be thicker.
But really this one works a treat.
Now I am off to think about more of a design for my whole cloth, while I rest some more.
Please forgive me for not appearing to visit many blogs - but Blogger still is mostly being awkward.
I am visiting when I can and love to see and read what everyone is doing.
