I bought myself a new triangle ruler and immediately started cutting triangles.
They look pretty good when laid out together.
Definitely have no time to vacuum now. I’ll be quilting…
I’ve decided on a numerate binding for the kite tails quilt.
I love the contrast between orange and blue.
It’s the final episode of Survivor tonight. I think I should get quite a bit done by the time the episode is over.
Unless it gets too tense…
After a busy working week which involved travel to the north, the south and to the east I am finally finishing my Kite Tails quilt. Tonight I am free motion quilting the tails…
I think I can finish tomorrow. I think I can…
It’s my birthday today.
I’m thinking I should gift myself this…
and use it to make something inspired by this…

“This quilt is only small.” I told myself.
“This will take no time at all to quilt.” I agreed with myself.
“It’ll be finished in just a couple of hours.”
Naturally I have chosen the densest windy swirls to quilt onto the blue. They’re perfect for the background, but highlight how deluded I am about the time I take to do anything…
It’ll be worth it, but you’ll have to come back in a day (or two or three or four) for me to show you the results.
I’m away from home on a work trip. If I look out my motel window I see this.
While that is a lovely view I can’t help but think about what I was doing last night.
That’s quite a nice view too…
I came home today to find a bundle of loveliness waiting for me.
I think the red stripe is my favourite… or perhaps the orange stripe… or the green…
After a busy weekend in which we celebrated my son’s 18th birthday I have finally started adding the kite tails.
They are really lifting the whole quilt.

After I’ve drawn my quilt layout on my computer,
and seen the quilt in my imagination, I love it when it becomes a real quilt.
So does my assistant.
I bought some new fabric.
It’s perfect for making kite blocks.
So that’s just what I’ll be doing for the rest of the day.
