Well it has been an interesting 10 days to say the least. Mum has had what the doctors call a "mini stroke" and was hospitalized for a week while she was put through all kinds of tests to work out why. Everything came back clear, she is home now, has to have some physio and start eating more fish, but otherwise the same old Jules as always! Milly has broncolitis and is on antibotics, coughing like she has a 10 pack a day smoking habit! And Grace came home earlier this week uttering her first F word!!! They were singing the nursery rhyme Old Dan Tucker which she had heard on the Wiggles that morning. Funny I thought they were singing Old Man Tucker, anyway not to hard to work out what swear word rhmyes with tucker!
So amungst all that I got to put together some mini squid eyes. 28 of them in full, or rather 28 big, 28 medium and 28 little eyes. Used nearly a whole metre of visofix making these! Then I lay them out on the quilt, then started blanket stitching it.
If I ever make this again, the trick is to blanket stitch the eyes on the 6 inch squares before you sew the squares togther. Much, much simpler! I'm shoving this quilt through the neck of my machine on each turn and there are 3 times I have to blanket stitch each square! Thats whta you get for making up a pattern as you go along I suppose. Which is why I need more of the below fabric!
I'm putting out the call again! If you live in Australia and have this Fat Flat amunst your stash, love to do a swap with you. Just need a little bit more. Anyone??
