Because I am too late for a Fearless Friday Flaunt...
On Wednesday the quilting frame and machine finally arrived from Brisbane.
Without it's chairs ("Oh" said the Pack and Send sheila, "I put them out the back. Must have forgotten to give them to the truck driver". Must have indeed, girlie. Now she is Having A Little Think about how to get them to me. Without me paying - cos I already paid for them to be under my bottom...).
This isn't the fault of the removalist company - they are still lovely.
Wednesday evening The Sweetheart helped me to get the table together and then I got too tired and had to have a sleep. At 7.30 p.m. Bit worn out from all the excitement, really.
And Thursday I did a bit more, and went to bed early. Yesterday I did a bit more and got it all together except for the rollers all loaded. And then went to bed at 7 p.m. and slept for 12 hours.
Today I hooked it all up.
AND I DID A BIT OF QUILTING!!!!!!!!
Yesterday my nephew Warwick and his Ammi had a baby. They named him Orson. Isn't that the most Awesome name? Well done you two!!
I sent them an email about 5.30 yesterday morning cos I dreamed they had a boy - but here at my place. And told Ammi it was hard work, but worth it in the long run. Turns out to have been the short run for her cos they went in to hospital about the time I wrote the email, and Awesome was born about 10 a.m. I never had labours like that - especially not Smellie 1. He was 30 hours before he hatched...
Back to the machine for another trial run. (Have not broken a needle yet).
