So you are wondering what I am doing with the pile of CDs Slicer gave me, are you?
Well, I am using them for a secret project, but I'll share some sneak peeks just so you know I really do have an idea brewing. ;-)
On the kitchen front I made these Rock Cakes for morning tea yesterday, and today I baked an Orange Madiera Cake (but they ate it before I took the photo!)...
...and guess what I found when I was cleaning up the book shelf in my sewing room?!
A DVD on domestic machine quilting!! I never realised I had it...but maybe that's because it came free with a magazine a while ago and I wasn't into machine quilting back then. Now that I am I'll get around to learning some smarter techniques.
And look what other DVDs I came across...
...I have no excuse not to learn new techniques now! The hard part is sitting down to watch them - because I have to WATCH, I can't stitch at the same time. Very hard for me. Is that hard for you?
Have you signed up for the Hug Swap yet?
How is your August Sewing Machine Cover Challenge coming along - you only have a few days left in August and the giveaway prizes are wonderful if you finish in time to enter the draw! Remember, the idea is to dress your machine-friend and not have her naked anymore...it's not about having the perfect cover or the prettiest. :-)
And lastly, don't forget, next Tuesday I'll be sharing block 9 of my Shabby Roses BOM ( and it's gorgeous!) I will also be sharing the cutting instructions for your fabrics - if you need the yardage measurements to purchase the correct amount of fabrics you will find them HERE. Have you stitched the first 8 blocks yet?
I must away now and finish more of my CD project...can't wait to show you!!
