** Just warning you now that this is going to be a total random mishmash of information today… but then it is called Tuesday Tidbits for a reason lol…
** We started our day this morning with a “workout” of “ballet” dancing in our pyjamas thanks to a request from Hannah…
** I highly recommend it as a good abdominal muscle workout (from all the giggling).
** After all the sunshine over the last week today we have thunder, lightning & rain!
** Good weather if you are a duck, or a frog…
** NOT such good weather if you are my feet, or my heart – which nearly stopped earlier when I stepped out of my car into our driveway & had a frog hop on my foot
** I screamed like a little baby I tell you! (I did not yet know what it was that was hopping madly around my feet!)
** Here is the culprit pictured once he’d hopped to safety (and I’d restarted my heart!)…
|*shudder…. I thought of you Anorina!|
** After the girls went to bed I did some more free-motion quilting practise yesterday…
** I wanted to try feathers the “correct” way
– well, at least the way that everybody else seems to do them.
** It was much easier & I am much more confident that with a little more practise I could use them on a quilt:
** I went to the shops this morning & then wondered why…. why oh why!!!! I am starting to regret the decision to have a PO Box, because it requires me to go near the mall in December. Gah – so busy!
** Since it is the season of giving I have decided to enter into not 1 but 2 giveaways in the coming week!
** First up I will be participating in the Quilters Gallery Blog Hop Party to celebrate their 4th birthday…
** Thanks need to go to my friend Bree for her contributions and encouragement to get me finally having a go at these!
** The first one, while it looks lovely now, was actually quite a big disaster at first – it was supposed to originally fit into one of the frames in the picture below! Lets just say that I will not be following that tutorial again and I will instead go with my gut.
** At least I managed to salvage it and use it with another type of frame though!
(shame it took me an entire evening in the process!)
** I still wouldn’t say I’m totally over my nervousness about them – it’s just the template now. I am confident to handle the gluing at least. So one step closer to confidence with them than I was before.
** It is still thundering away like mad out there!
** Poor Hannah doesn’t like it very much.
** And that concludes all my random tidbits for today
