This morning I woke up and out of the blue decided to weigh myself - well I'm 4kg lighter than I was. I've decided its all due to my quilting because:
- I can't eat and quilt at the same time
- I expend lots of nervous energy doing stippling (it hasn't got any easier)
- By the time I've spent all evening quilting, I'm too tired to snack, so I just go to bed.
So I've decided that quilting is FAR more effective than the gym (hehe).
I had a wonderful day today. My morning at work (I work 4 days/wk as a speech pathologist) was busy and so I treated myself to lunch at Ken Duncan's gorgeous art gallery surrounded by trees and birds. While I was waiting for my chicken caesar salad I made myself at home on the couch (surrounded by the most beautiful photographs) and finished off the binding for a new design I have been working on (I'll show you soon). Now that's the life!
Here's a picture from the show on the weekend.
Sarah London was also kind enough to snap some pictures of my quilts at the show, and do a little write up. She is having a great giveaway at the moment, so head over there - it finishes this Friday.
My friend, Ally, who works at my local quilting store - Blueberries - was also at the show. Their stand was really cute with a beach theme going on. Stop in at her blog and say 'hi'. I hear she may be planning a giveaway too.
Lastly, a couple of days ago "Handmade Kids" posted my idea about kids making quilts. They have a great website with tonnes of wonderful ideas for handmade stuff for kids, so it was cool to be featured.
P.S. Thanks for your comments on adding the red to the owl quilt. I think I'll get some of the red owls and then decide as I work on it.
