I'm still here....

Tis a few days since my last post, so just checking in briefly to say I survived yesterdays almost 42deg heat. I know I should not complain, it was only 1 day, and lots have had far worse for longer. Today has been much nicer. 
Max has been busy in the last couple of weeks, and I will post some photos in due course. But this is what I loaded today, and will keep me occupied for some time. That gathered sashing looks fantastic on these quilts, but it is a tad tricky to stitch in the ditch, as sometimes the ditch wants to go the other way. Mainly because the blocks are ironed to pellon to make the stitches more stable, and this makes it hard to press nicely, as it sticks to the iron. Usually I can "turn" the ditch with a pin from the top side as I sew along. But not always.

Looking forward to this time next week, when the house will fill with friends for a few days of sewing, chatting, and celebrating being Australian. Getting the flags out ready.

That's all folks, be back soon.

Blessings, From Jude

I agree, heat is not my friend! But I do so love air conditioning, I would have made a terrible pioneer wife!

I'm with Sue on the heat & lucky we have a cooling system. I did have to laugh at the pioneer wife bit (giggle). I'm glad it's you Judy doing that difficult looking SID on that quilt. Good luck & thanks for the help with you know what. Take care.

That is a gorgeous quilt. Ruffled sashing is a novel idea, and I'm with Susan, glad it isn't me SID :) You will do a great job though I am sure xx
