I try to get at least one blog post a week, but life has taken a turn for hectic.
Work as always is busy this time of the year, but I had a silly accident in Wednesday evening. I left the handbrake off my car, and it slowly started to roll down the street, I chased it ( as you do), door was locked so I got behind it and tried to stop it rolling, it was heading towards a tree.
Upside, didn't hit the tree, didn't dent the car.
Downside, I pulled a muscle in my leg and ended up at the hospital. At first they thought it was a snapped tendon or Achilles, but after X-rays and ultra sound this was all ruled out. I now have a very swollen leg turning a pretty shade of purple.
On the sewing front I have received four custom quilt orders in one week on my etsy shop.
First is a baby quilt, and the lady is posting me the fabric to created her something so I can't start on that until the parcel arrives.
Second is a lady who ordered a quilt from another shop six weeks ago, only to be told today they can't do it and will refund her money, baby is due in three weeks and I am making her my owl quilt. Luckily I have made this four times and have it down pat. Owls are cut out, background fabric purchased today, so all systems go tomorrow.
Then a US lady orderd my Henrietta's whiskers quilt ( a bunny hill design) and asked me to make her Le Jardin, another bunny hill design.
I have completed Henrietta's whiskers and just need to pop the binding on.
( amazing what you can accomplish when you don't have to go to work )
the Le Jardin pattern has been ordered so I can't start that until the pattern arrives, I am quite excited about making this, it's a very pretty quilt.
So, since I have had so much sewing to do, there has not been a lot of blogging or surfing the web.
But tonight I am relaxing leg elevated and on ice, finishing the stitching on my first Bertie's year block. I need to add more snowflakes on the black border HST's and do a feather stitch around the red/ black seams, then it's done all but the quilting.
