Sewing up a storm

For the past few days I have been sewing my youngest daughter's
Matric dance dress.
While I have enjoyed doing this I will hopefully not be sewing
any wedding dresses in the near future!
Ask for a quilt any day,Please.
Tomorrow is the big day:
Hair, nails and make-up.
Even Mom has to get into the swing of things and I
have just finished a new black evening skirt for myself.
Next entry will have photos.
Until later,
Happy sewing and quilting

Progress on Heirloom quilt

The quilt top is almost done.
I just need to add the borders and then
I am ready to sandwich and quilt.
This will not be done on the Hinter berg as I will need to SID
and I have not yet mastered that in the frame.
I am off to Cape Town for a few days.
Eldest daughter is doing Half Marathon on Saturday.
I hope to meet with an agent for quilting threads for the Hinter berg.
Also am meeting friends from home for dinner.
I hope to but fabric for my stash as well.
Until later,
Happy quilting,
