Morning, well it was my first Friday Night Sew In and I was so ready for this, desperately needed some soul stitching. Girls were forewarned, croissants with ham. cheese and tomato for dinner or help your yourself. Out to the craftroom I go, cranked up my new CD- Into The Bloodstream by Archie Roach, Archie is an indigenous singer songwriter and he to is one of the Stolen Generation. This new album really speaks to me, it is soothing and uplifting, or maybe that's where I am in my journey of healing. I am not a religious person but the gospel sounds are lovely.
Well what did I get up to?....
I started to piece together DD14 Grandpa's Little Treasures quilt top by Teddlywinks.
I had one block to piece, but the peepers were weary, and both me and one of our four legged girls were covered in loving. ( my girls refer to the endless threads that drift around our house as pieces of loving ) So into bed I fell. First thing this morning out to the top I went and attached that last block, yes cheating seen it is now Saturday, but you know somewhere in the world it still is Friday.
When the top was revealed DD22 BF asked if he could have this quilt ( as he does every time one comes off the machine ) he was very quickly told " get in line buddy, the next ones mine" by DD22. His face falls, I have never know a boy so desperate for a quilt of his own.
Shhh...... just between you and me a quilt for him is now in the planning. I will have to design it first as he is a real country boy and deserves a country boys quilt with at least his beloved ute on it.
Well off to netball now hope everyone had a great sew in.
