Moving on .... to the shiney, shiney

The label is on the quiltand the binding is looking great.

It's even been shown off at Guild, so it's time to pass this onto it's new owner and for me to move onto my next project.

In the meantime I have managed to very successfully distract myself with some lovely shiney things that I found on Trade Me. Today the parcel finally arrived in the letter box, revealling

many beautiful ribbons and belts,

adorned here and there with wonderful vintage buckles,

and lots of shiney, sparkly things. My friend's don't call me a magpie for nothing! My daughter is still to arrive home from school but I have a feeling something from this parcel could well end up adorning her new ball dress.... I'll keep you posted.

The Inevitable Delay

Just when I thought I had a clear run to actually finishing this quilt I have struck a seemingly immovable obstacle - our cat... The family tell me I am just too soft - but who could move him?

It's a long weekend here. I am eternally hopeful he will move - if not I'm planning a trip to Asian Gallery for a wee browse. After all, I haven't been there for almost a month. This time I will try to remember to take the camera....
