Butterflies and Blooms

The quilt is done!
Applique butterfly blocks from Hatched in Africa and
Center block a Paper pieced Carol Doak design.

I spent and enjoyable day in Durban on Saturday with Liese and Cara
from Hatched in Africa.
They had a trunk show and we all had so much fun.

Also got to see the new 830/820 Bernina which has just been launched here.
It is a wonderful machine and the embroidery space is huge but I love my
machines and am very content with mine.

Now that I have one quilt done I will be loading another on the frame and
hope to have that done soon.
Until next time,
Happy sewing

Whats on my design wall

My design wall is full of butterflies.
24 to be exact!

The start of my Vintage Butterfly quilt commission.
I have so enjoyed sewing these.
I would actually like to do one for myself.

Until next week,
Happy sewing.

Update on Car

Yesterday afternoon I received the quote for repairs to my car.
A whopping big R42500.00 (about US$ 6000.00).
That is more than my Hinterberg.

Not much happening on the sewing side.
I am still removing applique paper from a quilt which will
then need to be put on the fame for quilting.
Hopefully that will happen this weekend.
Until next time
Happy sewing
