A busy week

What a busy week, and I feel like I actually accomplished a lot, even though I suffered an injury.  One thing I now know is wine and cutting fabric does not mix.  I was so excited in finishing block one of Henrietta's whiskers on Monday night, that on Tuesday night I set to work on block 2.

I had a nice glass of wine as I was cooking dinner, and another with dinner. Then off to the sewing room feeling relaxed.  A little too relaxed as it turns out as I slipped with the rotary cutter and took a nice slice of the side of my finger.  That put an end to cutting (or doing anything else) for the rest of the night.

Its still sore, but I managed to get the cutting and piecing done on Wednesday night, as well as the applique.  here is the block, I just need to finish off the stitchery. 

Thursday night, was Hubby's night for watching the Footy show on TV so I joined him and sewed the binding on the Shabby stars friendship quilt.  I absolutely love how this quilt has turned out it is so pretty and girly.  I have to admit I am a bit of a girly girl. 

And today, Mr postman delivered my lovely hot pad from T Neilson in New Zealand.  I am sorry, but there was no note in the package so I don't know who the lovely lady is that made this for me, but thank you. I love it.  I am a big fan of blue and white (I collect china), and love pin wheels, so this is perfect for me.

Well, I think that brings me up to date.
