Free Weekend!!! - or so I thought.

What a weekend!!! Forgot to bring school USB home - so thought I would start a new quilt using embroidery. Well... it has taken me most of Saturday and today to work out and fiddle with the embroidery software, only to find that it can't be saved on the 'programmable' memory card for the sewing machine!!!
So .. thought I'd catch up on Craftsy BOM - but it is a Dresden Plate block and I am still waiting on my template from US. So off to do the Hello Sun catch up blocks.
Watch this space!!!

Bookshelf update

I added embellishments and now the wall hanging is ready to be backed and binded.
While chatting online to my quilting buddies, one mentioned she was going to make a bookshelf quilt when she got an embroidery machine.....
WELL ...DUH!!!!! I've got an embroiderymachine, and never thought of using it to write the titles. Would have taken more time, but would have been easier than printing.
Next time.

I'm not happy with the glasses as they were so tiny and very fiddly - I'll have to work another method for next pair of glasses.

 I still need to trim the threads and tidy up - and add a bookmark.

Happy Sewing
