Hello I'm Back

The large mystery quilt is finished , 10 days before the deadline. I have hand quilted it, bound it and machine washed it on a delicate cycle and it is currently blocking on the floor in front of the wood heater. One thing left is a label to show ownership for the new owner. I wont show a pic of the finished item until the new owner receives it on the 30 August.
Now I will be too busy organising the occasion for when I give it away.
As for any other patchwork, I have ordered a new book for my contemporary workshop for QCWA in January 2009. I have also invested in a roll of Floriani Stitch n Wash Fusible for an upcoming applique workshop in banner making for the streets of Gin Gin in October. Once the 30th August party is finished I must look ahead again.
Events just keep rolling on don't they ? I must admit it was very nice to have a hand quilting project to do for winter and the olympics. I must remember this for 4 years time.
