You know what it’s like when you want to get a project all done and dusted – just do it. But I’m trying to pace myself and take frequent breaks when sitting at the sewing machine so I don’t upset my pulled muscle. It is getting much better, only twinges a little now. So my machine quilting is coming along slowly. Gemma thought that she would help me out in a supervisory role and jumped up onto the cabinet so she could check on my progress. Sorry Gemma, that won’t work at all – down you come. I eventually finished the long straight line quilting, marked a few shorter lines, then stopped for lunch.
Gemma is helping, so she thinks
After lunch I walked back to the sewing room, ready to do a little more. But look at this – call me a softie, but I didn’t have the heart to disturb her. I’m really pleased that Gemma takes an interest in my quilting projects! While she’s sleeping I’ll go and write a quick blog post, I thought.
It is Spring here in our part of Paradise and the weather is warming up nicely. So I’ve changed our cozy winter pink and grey cat quilt with the warm wool batting for the season, this is my “Soul Searching – Colours of my Life” quilt. However, I’m not ready yet to change our fluffy winter sheets for cotton ones just yet, I’ll wait till the weather warms up even more first.

Last week I reported that my digital camera had died, based on the fact that the screen had gone black. It seems I pushed a button by mistake which changes the camera over to using the viewfinder. After all, I can’t be expected to know what all the buttons do, I work on a “need to know” basis. Luckily Robin worked it out for me and I can happily snap away again.
