All work and no play....

Well, I don't know about Jack 

but my life has been decidedly dull,

while my worklife threatened to take over!

So I took the opportunity last night to treat 

myself...


and do a little stitching!


I am getting closer to a finish of Ginger Kisses...

(I have spent over thirty hours quilting this so far!)

Then today I made another feather....


to go with the first...


And to finish off the weekend a family celebration for 

 Daniel's birthday!

Dan and Jenny                  MrPnP and I 

Can't imagine where those years went?

That's probably enough excitement for one weekend,

cos its back to work for me tomorrow!

Happy days!

SUZ

  2. Hi Suz, I'm glad that you got a break from work....the Ginger Kisses will be so beautiful with the hand quilting. Your feathers are so pretty...I"m trying not to get worried that my fabric hasn't arrived yet! Are you going to call it "Birds of a Feather"?

  15. I'm loving those feathers! Hand quilting is a wonderful slow sew project and a good change from school stuff too. Your years seem to have passed well, all be it quickly.

  19. Some wine looks good... I love those feathers! Even though I think they're a bit of a pain to make (I did 6, called it quits and made a table runner with them).
