Back in Business

I have access to a camera and am back on line. The only problem is that I am also back at work and have 19 beautiful 6 and 7 year olds to play with all year. I am wiped out! I will try to sew and I will try to blog but I may have a few silences too.
This week I have flopped in front of the TV from sheer exhaustion and sewed until bedtime. 9 o'clock on school days. I have so much quilting to do it's ridiculous. Some of it has been hand quilting.
Some machine quilting and binding.

 When one of my boys headed off overseas for a 3 week jaunt before uni starts back, I made him a Kindle cover. I don't really like it but it is what he wanted and he was pretty pleased with it. It will help protect it while he moves about. I should have made it tighter and although I like the sleeve concept, it left a bump where it overlaps with the cover. I prefer the Kindle to fit completely into a pocket.


  1. I'm always in awe how people who work full time can find time to quilt. I'm doing nothing! and I still don't get stuff finished. Love the Kindle cover you've made and the other things you are working on.

  2. Best wishes adjusting back to the school year! I really don't know how you teachers find the energy to do what you do. Hand quilting in front of the TV sounds like a good way to rest.

  3. Loving all that lovely stitching!!!
