We're coming to the end of two weeks of school holidays. Two weeks in which my boys have been fighting (with each other and myself) a lot of the time. I hate admitting this, but I'm actually looking forward to them going back to school (and I feel like a really bad mum for saying it). I love my kids beyond compare, but their behavior can be a pain in the butt sometimes. On a less whingey note, I had an unexpected child free day yesterday thanks to Grandparents, and spent a good five hours quilting my Retro Flowers. Not surprisingly I felt a LOT better by the time they came home ;o)
I'm pretty sure my kids think it's a dance floor ;o)
And it's done! I couldn't be happier with how it's turned out. I've cut my binding (same colour as the background) and I'm hoping to get it sewn on tonight. I don't think I can wait another two weeks (till the Blogger's Quilt Festival starts) for the reveal, so I'm hoping to get the photos done over the weekend and do my ta-dah post next week :o)
I had a wee bit of gorgeous post arrive today as well - my first month's fabric and pattern for the Amitie BOM. Even better than I was expecting - I will definitely be visiting Amitie in person next time I'm in Melbourne (which might be a while, considering it involves a plane trip...)
