Taking a break...

A coffee break, is all, and I thought I'd use the time usefully.

I spent several hours yesterday on my knees, basting

Oh my favourite job!  Not!  But it did look pretty good, if I say so myself.  And it only took half an hours sit down before I was able to walk again!

Then this morning, in just an hour and a half, I have done half of the quilting



Oh the joy of just doing straight lines instead of FMQ.  I should have this baby finished today!

  8. Oh, I know what you mean! My back ached for 4 days in a row after I weeded 1/6th of our garden... I couldn't sleep, sit or walk properly :( Who wants to come over and finish my garden work?!

  9. Basting is such a pain in the a.... and the knees and back and pretty much everywhere! Lovely that you almost finished the quilting already. Straight line quilting is so much quicker, unless you try matchstick quilting, then that takes forever.
