Today, I have been sewing like the wind! I wanted to finish the last quilt for my Give Away......you have to go back some posts to find this if you want to enter it.... and I am very pleased to say, I have finished it. So all three quilts are done, which means I can now close the Give Away, as I said I would if I got them all done before the allotted time of 30th November.

I will leave it open until tomorrow night, then it will most definitely be closed and someone will win one of the quilts, the one they choose. Cant be fairer than that.

I didn't get the pictures done I was supposed to today, apologies for that, but I shall tomorrow, will have the whole day to myself, hubby back to work after a few days off holiday, so I shall get loads of sewing photos done. The day is MINE.

I also started some postcards today, am pleased with the way they are looking, I hope to get at least 3 or 4 done tomorrow, depends on how much detail I put on, some of them I think wont get much as they are 'fancy' already. You will have to wait and see. See you tomorrow.

On a sad note, my friend Di rang, to tell me her mum had died this morning, she had been very poorly, but it was quick. She died peacefully so that is a blessing. Di and her family have been going backwards and forwards visiting her, a 3hour journey either way. They are all exhausted. My thoughts are with her and her family.

Sorry about your friends loss of her mother.

Congrats on getting your quilts done. I know the feeling of completing a project. Happy and somewhat sad too...like saying goodbye to a dear friend...as I become attached to my work.
