Tough Mudder: Melbourne Australia at Phillip Island Circuit.
Tough Mudder events are hardcore 18-20 km obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.
I think I will stay home this week end as it is very busy in Cowes with all the people coming for the Tough Mudder. Good excuse to sew...........Happy stitching...

Deciding on sashing was difficult

I just love this quilt; it is one of my favourites and the first quilt I had professionally quilted by Lisa. It Is a shame you can't see the quilting as it is absolutely gorgeous I finished it March 2011.I appliqued all the blocks  in six weeks,it was so addictive I couldnt put it downThe blocks are only 5 1/2 inches.Five ladies in my group also finished their quilts and it was very interesting seeing the different colour ways of the same quilt. The blocks are from Faye Anderson Appliqué Designs My Mother Taught Me To Sew

I had a busy day yesterday morning running around buying kitchen appliances, a kitchen utility table and bits and pieces. Then I spent the afternoon cooking and freezing half for a rainy day. After dinner I managed to work on my Cherry Chocolate Quilt by Addicted to Quilts. I pieced a few blocks for my border. I have been working on this quilt on and off, for over a year. Here is a picture of the blocks I made yesterday.
Happy stitching...
