Four day weekend, yay me!

I have an RDO today and the public holiday on Monday so it's a four day weekend for me. Yay me! So far I have done ironing, cleaned the bathroom, and now contemplating vaccuuming. Huh? What's with that.

Finally I have downloaded the camera with pics of the finished Aliza's quilt. It's not as vibrant in the pics no matter how many and at different angles I took the pic. I looked at the quilt and thought fairy floss and green apples. It was alive. But the pics don't quite portray that. But look at that luxurious minky at the back, I couldn't stop feeling it, I swear I've just about worn it out. That's all I did, backed it with minky and as far as a baby blanket goes that's all the thickness it needed. I just caught the front and bottom with knotted cotton at various intervals where the squares met (pinched the idea out of a sample in a quilting store!!) and I love the effect.

So hopefully 'blankie' will be dragged from pillar to post. I want this to be used and played with and snuggled with and slept with and cried on and laughed on and be a treasured item for dear little Aliza for many many years.

OOh ooh Mr Kotter, I know exactly where that quilting store is and can direct you blindfolded to the quilt!! Do I win a prize? Looks even better than theirs.
Love all the new banners and photos that you have added in my absence. Now how do you do that?? Cheers, tracey
