Designing in progress

My printing has been done for me today, and I have stuck the pieces together...the whole design is now larger. Which is good ...........   I think!
Trouble is that I cant seem to get the design quite square, so have done the best I can for the moment.  I do need to do something with the centre but think I can do that as I draw.
The outside far corners also need something different as the circles dont quite match.

Anyhow - thats it for me just now - back to the couch go I :)

Designing in progress

Starting again!!



Even the water went clear!

I am having the design Printed for me and will then glue the 4 pieces together...trouble is thay were not able to print it onto Freezer paper...so I may need to transfer it to that by physically drawing it... or another thought - I wonder if I iron the Freezer paper to the fabric blank and THEN draw the design with my light box. 
Even while resting the mind still works!
The drawings took a day to go, but go they did.Its all a time thing isnt it, and I am a bit frustrated that I have done no sewing in a while.
On the good side - my DH is a little better .. we are still waiting for a diagnosis...2 weeks to wait!
Now I am the one resting :(
We take it in turns :)

 Blogger wont let me add the selected photo

Today was my Birthday - and I spent it resting ....
I have hurt my back putting a piece of heavy wood on the fire yesterday.

Andrea 's Migraines returned - one last week and another on Monday

Between us all - we are not travelling very well.

To add to that - I messed up the drawing of my whole cloth quilt - I should NOT have touched it!!
and it is destined to be washed .
I will need to start again - when I feel better.

We did manage to go and do some shopping... 
 Some frozen meals so I dont have to cook for a day or so :)
I will be missing again for a while..

Friday Night Sew in

Long time between posts , as I have been busy looking after my DH, I have managed to do some sewing for the FNSI.

My heart is not really in sewing at present, but its nice to get even a small bit done.

I have also managed to get almost half the central design of my whole cloth drawn out.

I have no idea how I am going to do the rest - probably draw as I go..or rather do the plan and draw from there.

Sorry I have not been writing comments much on other blogs, but blogger is being a bit silly and I cant enter comments on a lot of sites.
I am also trying hard to get my Photoshop Elements classes done and am behind on that too.

I catch up on sleep when I can and the sewing and other things just have to wait :)

FMQ completed on this one

Another small time limit and I have completed the quilting on this

Most of this I had done for the FMQ Challenge...just needed to finish the fillings on the border feather, so - another few moments and its completed.

Here is the back...some threads showing :(

Some detail of the border - and the lady-bug :)

Now to soak it, then get the piping on , the zip in the back and put it together...maybe next time you see this it will be complete.
It may take a while...but I have some other things to sew if I cant get to this...

 Big belated thankyou to Paul, Desley's ( of Addicted to Quilts ) husband , who very kindly worked out this logo on my photo's for me!!

More Small Moments of time

A small window of time and I did 5 minutes of the fillers in the small quilt ....

still some spaces to do more fillers... Nessie waits patiently :)

... and also managed a few Pin Cushions.

No time for anything bigger just now.
