My very first completed quilt. This is the New Zealand quilt, originally made as a present, but the occasion is long gone, and the back is a bit dodgy (I'll learn from my mistakes). It is appliqued NZ themed cotton fabrics with a black binding and back, quilted. I am really pleased with it, although it doesn't really fit my future decorating plans. John will probably have in on the couch in his office.
Here is Ruby. I have long wanted one of these to be mine! She is adjusted to be my twin, so she is generously curvy all around. She is going to help me to be more self-sufficient in clothing myself.
Inspired by The Smashing Pumpkins, Muse and The Queen's of the Stone Age, Mr B. decided to unleash the rocker within and got his very own bass guitar with amp. I don't know if the cello helps, but he and I are both naturals. Mr B. is so pleased with himself, and Mr Ruby Two Shoes has got himself a bass guitarist for his Christmas band.
News in brief:
I had a day off sick today. My cold got the better of me. Slept most of the day.
Our builder has been working hard already, plotting and scheming. Excellent.
Monty is great.
The purple grapes are ripe. Yum.
Have a great rest-of-the-week! XXX
