We had a break for lunch, and a chance to sit down!!! Brioni and Tash joined us which was lovely - they had been working very hard - getting contacts, freebies and interviews, for their brilliant on-line mag called FQ (www.fatquarterly.com/). They were also handing out cards for the mag and trash decided she would give a hand - as you can imagine she did brilliantly!! Here she is chatting up some future purchasers!!!

Am hoping sometime today to get into my sewing room and get on with Em's quilt! (This is tidy by the way!)
Although it doesn't look too bad here, its a bit 'lumpy'!!! I think the trouble is my tension is not even - but i have learnt a lot whilst making it so hopefully won't make the same mistakes in future - i think i'll just say its deliberately 'textured'!!!

This week i've been trying to finish some of the things i started last year and this is one of them - its a quilt for Em which i started last October - as its her birthday in September i have decided i have to finish it by then!!
I'm fairly happy with it, have just got to add a further border this afternoon - shocking pink, and then put it together and quilt it!!
Had a lovely time at Trash's in the week - i've always wanted to try some form of painting, i was rubbish at school - so Trash took me under her wing and i did this-
I hope she's happy with it!!
Now then, to nap or not?!!! Maybe just a short one and then some crochet (trying to finish my granny square blanket)!
