Saturday's Slack-arsed Skite

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.

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).

Orson is a top name and a wonderful attitude to start life with... just like the work we will see you flaunting from your new tops in the near future.

Now you can get super clever and earn the price of it back.
I would love to have one..eyes on the Inspira that Michelle at Ringwood has.....Hus type brand......but am not willing to sacrifice space.
Still need the Christian, musical,woodworking man with the land and the money to buy me the largest yurt for a studio. Trouble is if he took me on now...the poor man would be insane.

PS - did you get which ever smellie to disconnect the beep on the iron yet?

That's a grand new toy. Can't wait to see the magic that comes out of it!
