Everyone continues to amaze me. Listening to all the statements I could feel Waikato in everyone's quilt. Thanks Ashleigh for the yummy cupcakes, and for so quickly getting the photos online.

I have googled fibrelicious and there it was. Two main themes coming through with this title :-) Some silly and not so silly suggestions from my husband. Will let it go round and round for a while but starting to get an inkling for my direction.

Nearly there!

Slow but steady is all I can say about my progress this time. Not really enthused about my creation this time but will keep working on it.

Less than a week to go

We have less than a week to go before our next get together so if you havn't already finished you better get your skates on. ( I can only say that with a smile because I have finally finished ) This Sunday which is the 27th of March is the date to be here with you finished quilt and 2pm. See you all then.

At Last!!!

Phew I can sigh a little bit of relief because finally today i managed to cut my fabrics & start putting my 12x12 together!! Everything, touch wood, has gone really well & I am happy with the result so far, however I have a long way to go with lots of fiddly stitching to do! One day in the future hopefully I can be a bit easier on myself & do something a lot simpler!!Definitely looking forward to Sunday & seeing everyones masterpieces! (The worst case scenario is at least this is applique so I will have something to show!!).

As time draws closer i'm getting more and more nervous and I really think I might be the one to let the team down this time! I just CAN'T get into it and my friends from Christchurch are staying with us for a while and for the life of me I just can't seem to find time. I think i need my partner to lock me in my sewing room and put a padlock on the outside so I can't get out untill I finish. Good idea?? Hope everyone is having more luck than me!

Just do it!

Spent so much time thinking (usually in the middle of the night), sketching, browsing, researching, abandoning ideas and creating new ones, abandoning the obvious and creating the nebulous. Get over it Bev, just do it!! Tomorrow I will - just do it!!!
