My sewing machine has decided it's been over used and us now not working the way it should be so I've taken it to the quilt shop I bought it from.
it will be ready next Tuesday so I'll have 10 days without a machine. Think about all the things I will actually get down around the place lots of gardening and sorting out cupboards all the jobs i have been meaning to do.
And blog hopping.
While playing around on blogs yesterday I can across a new BOM starting on the 1st of January featuring Celtic designs.
So go on over and have a look

Well this is me looking really excited what a dreadful photo maybe because I really hate having my photo taken.
Anyway I won my quilt won Best of Show in my guild Pinestream quilt show. Actually I was probably still not recovered from the shock as i couldn't believe I'd won. See the cup I'm holding I really won.
The batteries in the camera decided to finally die on me so I haven't a larger photo of my quilt strangely I didn't take one when I'd finished it so when Bob comes to see the quilt next weekend I'll take a better photo. You really need to see the whole quilt.
My friend Jenny mananged to get a better photo http://romanyquilting.blogspot.com/ so hop over there and see and read her excellent blog which she keeps up to date.
So can't bet that one can ya.
I also had a wonderful weekend the ladies from the Pinestream quilt guild in Upper Hutt are such a lovely lot I enjoyed their company at yet another of their retreats. I managed to get a lot of quilting done and when I have bought the new camera batteries I will post photos. And as usual the food was delicious and plentiful.

This quilt is moving on very slowly considering I need to take it up to my friend who is going to quilt it for me on Monday. I have decided to put it in the Wellington quilt show and hand in for all quilts is at the end of this month. I have had a horrible cold this week and the motivation has been a bit on the slow side but I will have heaps of time over the weekend as DH will be at a few sporting events and won't be required to take me out for coffee.
Fredi the cat was not too impressed with my layout and preferred her way not too sure about it myself.

Here it is the third little giraffe quilt luckily the recipient was a boy who has been named Lennox. After two daughters the parents are thrilled with a son. I am looking forward to meeting the little chap.
I actually did some quilting this morning went to a friends house to try and finish a quilt for a friends mum who has been diagnosed with Motor Neuron disease. Its almost finished I thought we might have got it finished this morning but had to hurry home to meet a dog trainer who has ideas of how we can actually get Bolt toilet trained actually it's common sense but don't look forward to the 4 am start!!!!!! Bags not me for that one.
