This is Shirley and Alicia! When Shirley is around it is a giggle a minute!
I think the girls had some fun!
Lunch was good too! We had a Mexican theme.
M-J supplied the bubbles!
During the afternoon we sat in the Physics lab (lots of power points and a smart board) and sewed. Quilts were sandwiched, applique was machined x 2, borders were sewn on, backing was prepared and M-J started to quilt her bargello quilt! I'll have to ask her is I put a photo of it on my blog one day!
And what did I do during the afternoon? I finished the quilting on this and started to paint some of the leaves I quilted onto it!
A little bit more paint in strategic spots and it will be ready for a facing!
So far so good I think!
Today I've been doing something totally different.
I subscribe to Design Matters TV. (Thank you Lisa for pointing me that direction!). Over the last few weeks Laura Kemshall has been showing us some very interesting English paper piecing. Now, I've never be attracted to it at all! Hexagons really don't do much for me. Please don't get me wrong! I really admire quilters who have the patience to make a grandmother's garden quilt. It's just not me.
