Quilt bug

I'm really enjoying Pinterest. I'm following a few avid quilters, and it's a great feeling when they post blocks and quilts that are just beautiful. It's a great way of feeling part of a community. It's nice to know that someone else gets it too - the quilt bug that overtakes us!

This is a block that I love - the quilter has really thought about it - I think the stripes add the impression of speed. It's a great start for a child's quilt.

Ice

Ben was in his first ice skating competition today. He's here with his coach.

He looks quite relieved that it's over.

Practicing

videoHere's Ben practicing his routine a couple of days ago.

Mop of hair

Ben's coach sorts out his hair before the presentation. It was only 8 degrees outside and he had a case of beanie hair.

Number 1

Ben was the only person at his level competing today so he was number 1.

Editor

In a previous life I was an editor. And doing it again now. I just love this tongue in cheek list of editor's marks.

Bird quilt

Today's quilting

Here's what I've been working in today. I bought this fabric through www.spoonflower.com the designer emailed me yesterday to ask whether I'd made anything and to ask to see any photos. I had a think about the design when I first woke up this morning and this is the start.

Pieced bird

This echoes the big bird in the middle of the other block.

Boys on the roof

Andrew and the rose beast

Andrew got rid of the last of the banksia rose today. He walked with it over the roof and dumped it in the side of the yard. It's a beast!

Which is the most dangerous?

Sunday morning worksheet

This is the third worksheet. Yesterday was maths and then punctuation. I do love the "guinne~pig" and rat pictures.

Saturday afternoon maths

Ben has made a worksheet for me to fill in. This is going to test my maths skills. Fortunately I remember a conversation with him a week ago when he told me that 1x1 is 1!
