I have done the border blocks for Kellys of Charming Chatter quilt-along The Simple Things and it took a while to trim them back to the 3 1/2inches square but will be worth it.
This coming week Kelly is going to show us how to put the quilt together…wooo hoooo…
I am so loving this quilt and its the first time I have used all white background. So you know who won’t be allowed near it don’t you?
Yes this little madam!
She has had a bath now and is lovely and white…she didn’t mind the bath and blow dry either lol.
She lies on the little pink rug especially for her and at times she even totally chills out….
Just had to show you that pic! Not a care in the world!!
I went out and had a bit of a splurge the other day.
I saw this advertised in one of the big stores on special and decided that because I have never had a decent food mixer and only ever little hand held beaters that it was time I indulged. I am really happy with it as eventually I can get the attachments for it to replace the items in my kitchen and this will make room in my cupboards and free up bench space. Gotta love that!! The attachments that came with it were the different beaters and a splash guard and also a mincer for meat and vegies. I also can replace the kitchen whizz later on and the bread maker as a dough hook came with it. Plus I want to get a juicer and a blender and and and………
I am delighted also with this as now I can make a decent Pavlova!!! Dawn has a great recipe on her blog and I wasn't able to make it before as I only had a hand held whisk and there was no way I was going to whisk the egg whites by hand. So once I go shopping for more eggs guess what I am going to make? hehehe. I know Mr T will be thrilled as he loves Pavlovas.
Hope you all are having a great weekend
hugs to all…..
