As well as the First communion dress that i have been making, over the last two weeks i have been busy with a quilt top for my work. My boss gave me 10 embroidered panels and asked me to put it together into a quilt, using one of the jelly rolls. i hadn't used a jelly roll before and must say that I loved it! i loved the way i could pick up any two pieces and someone else had already done the thinking for me and it always matched perfectly. I do understand that that is the whole idea but it is fabulous!!
I didn't have a pattern so made it up as I went with some help from a friend who had done something similar recently. Thanks Ann.
So without any further ado, here it is:
As for the first communion; that was on Sunday and it all went off without a hitch. Photos to follow soon hopefully.
I must remember to take my camera with me next time I go out; the local farmers' canola crops are all flowering beautifully; it is such a happy sight when the sun is out.
That is about all that is happening in this neck of the woods. I am occupied with work and this week with helping son no 1 choose subjects for year 10 next year; what a big job that is. Luckily he knows what he wants to do when he leaves school, it is a bit hard to expect 14 year olds to have their life mapped out and know what they want to do for the next 40 years. Oh well, it is easier for us, we just have to find out what subjects he needs to have to get into the university course of his choosing. Three more years and he will be out of the house and on his own. Where does the time go and does it have to go so fast?
