Prepped and ready...

I crossed a couple of things off my To Do list today, keeping myself occupied with the help of a little skiver so-called poorly child, who, 10 minutes after pick up at 9.30am, seemed as right as bloody rain!

So first I made the binding for Terri's quilts.  As far as I know, the tops are still in block form and then need to be quilted, but I am ready!



Then I made the next additions for Jude's Brit Bee Medallion, but I forgot to take any pics, but as they are secret anyway, no biggie.

And although I have the MATO applique at the ready, I feel a little lost when I don't have a bunch of EPP on the go; so I sizzixed into yesterday's bundle and a dozen complementary prints, mostly Liberty, including my first quilty fabric purchase from the V&A exhibition in 2010!


I am not sure what these will become yet, whether I will stick with my usual random, or make pretty flowers, I cut 8 hexies of each print to keep my options open, and time will tell.  I am just happy to have some basting to keep my fingers busy.

So until next time dear folks; it'll be Random Thursday, and if the sedative hasn't worn off, you can probably expect something a bit more random than usual!

  1. Best of luck tomorrow, my friend. And I should be getting Terri's blocks from her in a couple of Saturdays. Then I just have to wait for the other four. Then, and only then, can I piece.

  2. I will be thinking of you often tomorrow, love. Take good care of yourself. The binding is absolutely amazing and you can't go wrong with a bit of EPP.

  12. Oh I've had a few of those 'poorly' children in the past! Every time I see your hexies I think I must get mine out...I have loads but never get around to using them. I have given lots to my daughter in SA and she is happily joining them together when she has time. Yours do look really pretty :)

  15. The best of everything to you. By the way, love that cute little pouch your hexies are in. Would love to see it all, but maybe you've done that before and I missed it.

  18. My Dad always said we felt better as soon as the school bus drove past. My kids have never tried it on me! They regularly tell me they need a rest day, but they get told bad luck. I've never had them act so sick I've believed them, unless they actually were sick. Tough Mum, I am.
