It is a busy time of year with summer not far away, there are seeds needing to be sown for the garden or we won't have produce in time for Christmas. In the last few days the grape vine has burst forth with buds and the roses are all coming into leaf. With all of the rain we have had in the last few days it is a challenge to get washing dry.
Anyway I attended a Chris Kenna class at our club and what a fantastic class. It was fabulous seeing the colours everyone chose for their Millefiori block components.
My untrimmed units.
Trimming makes such a difference.
On the Sunday following the class, hubby and I went to Auckland for my Aunty's 80th birthday lunch which was awesome.
Four of the siblings.
Hubby had a conference in Auckland on the Monday and Tuesday morning following the birthday lunch, so I took my sewing machine as you do to get in some stitching.
I rearranged the furniture to suit me, I did put it back to how I found it. Housekeeping couldn't believe their eyes when they checked in to see if we needed anything.
Units waiting for trimming
Getting an idea of how it is all going to come together
Another set of units coming together.
The plan is to keep chipping away at these units whenever I get the opportunity until they are done.
The club has an open weekend coming up in October and the plan is have all of the quilts from the Rosemary Rush class on display. Alas I haven't completed mine yet and so the pressure is on.
