...and watch some great entertainment:
Would you like to see him suspend a canon ball from his eyelid?
No? Me neither! Youngest sprog and I did a runner, leaving my husband and hardier daughter to be amazed and astounded.
Since then, I have made a start on quilting this:
I'm doing organic (wonky) line quilting, about half an inch apart, and at the moment I'm not sure whether to do this across the whole coloured panel, or leave it as it is with sections of quilting about four inches apart. What do you think? If I left it like this, will that be enough to hold it together (warm and natural batting)? Would it look better with more quilting?
In the end I decided to go for the thicker of the variegated threads I was considering.
So far I like the effect, though I wonder how it would have looked with the sand-coloured thread.
I also haven't decided whether to quilt the border (sand linen in the thread pic above) with the matching thread, or the variegated one - decisions, decisions!
I want to learn something new with each thing I sew, so this time I tried spray basting. Let me introduce you to my new best friend!
Have a lovely weekend, and a big thanks to all the Slow Bloggers who joined the linky party last week. I had a great time reading all your posts!
