Now hands up those of us that have a project that we sometimes do but are in no hurry to complete the type of project  you take to your quilting group each week stitch 3 stitches on and then take home again ( because to busy talking )to do it all over again next week . Well I have one of these projects and I am pleased to say that the center is now completed and all I have to do is the boarders and all is done, well until I get to quilt it . I started this quilt 2 years ago and it has been a constant friend on my trips to quilting , doctors and general running around after the kids.  It is not a hard quilt but a lovely quilt called "Amore" by Ann Gadsby Designs.

Now I have to figure out the second border weather to go pale or dark hummmmm . One thing I know is it wont take another 2 years for that decision,   I feel a trip to my local quilt shop coming up Yippy and hubby not here to see what I buy oh this could be very very very  bad .

Well as you all know Hubby is on his trip and like a lot of other Lady's sleep becomes a problem when the partner is away. Over the time I have found a few thing that help me to unwind and get some sleep , some of these range from knitting to puzzles. So of to my local opshop to have a look at some puzzles for me to do while Hubby was away.
Now I found this 2000 piece which I thought would last the 2 weeks.................................

Now imagine my surprise when I opened it up and found this ................................................

I can not understand this one bit, the person how owned this puzzle before me completed it and then when putting it away placed all the edges in a bag, the grass in another, sky and so on and so on a total of 6 bags. Somethings just leave you short of words . I don't know about the rest of you but when I finish the puzzle it gets tossed back on the box for the relaxing sort through next time I want to do it .

And as for the knitting well started a pair of socks but might only make the one so will be on the look out for a one legged person to give it to .
Have a great day and happy sewing

I see stars .......... no I don't have a head injury although I do know some people who might say other wise .

Have you ever brought a pattern and no matter how many times you read through that pattern you can't make any sense of it . Well this pattern was one of them. So in case like this the photo is the key, so with the help of the photo we now can see the stars .

I am hoping to get a lot of work done over the next few weeks as Hubby is off over to Germany to see family and friends for two weeks . I never sleep very well while he is away so great time to work on my own tings . Have to say am looking forward to it as I have been neglecting my own sewing at the moment. As for our training for the Bridge to Brisbane all is going well we are now running 14 km a day and just have to get my time down . I have really enjoyed running more than I would have thought and am thinking I might give a half marathon a go.

Hope you are all have a great week and happy sewing
