It's a beautifully sunny day in Canberra today, and I've spent my time sewing. Lovely. Dh took the children to his parents place on his way to work around 8 this morning, saying they'd be taken to hockey and then brought back here. Well, it's nearly 3, and they're still not back. I have spoken to the IL's, and the kids are playing with their cousins, so was there any rush? Of course not. We're all happy.
I've finally made some headway on my summer quilt for the Four Seasons Swap. I've been struggling with summery images, particularly since I'm not really all that keen on summer. So again, I've gone with a tropical resort theme. I've finished the top, and hope to quilt it tonight (after our dinner guests have gone home) and tomorrow. This one will be quilted on the machine, since it's made mostly out of batik fabrics, which are way too tough on my hands to hand quilt. I've also added some dimensional features on this one - I'm loving feeling creative!
The exhibition quilt (wish I could remember what I called it on the entry form!) is also going well. I sandwiched it last night, and have spent a bit of time hand quilting it today.
