WIP Wednesday - Week 12 - Flickr Birds and Daz's Big Day!

And so the work on the flickr dolls quilt swap goes. I haven't done much on it this week really..... I have appliqued down the birds, thank goodness my machine has a blanket stitch button!

There isn't enough contrast between the wing and the body. Another thing to change when I do the next version. I really like this red and white polka dot one!

Some of you know from other parts of my life on the www that my husband Daz has gone back to University this year. He is studying a one year full time course, a Bachelor in Primary Education which will make him a primary school teacher at the end of the year. It's only a years course as he already has a Degree in Media Studies and so it is just a one year course to be a teacher. A very intense full on year though! So far we have survived the first 6 weeks of the semester.... This morning there was excitement in the house as today was Daz's first day of "prac" teaching. He's been allocated a school in the next surburb and funnily enough the class he got is the same year as Gracie's class. I packed him a lunch and we all gave him good luck kisses and then waved him goodbye.

Wonder if I should have a beer open for him ready when he walks back in this afternoon....
