Great Sewing Time and a Good movie.

I've had a good couple of weeks. I'm half way through the embroideries needed for August's block for the Gardener's Journal SAL. I've just sewn the binding on a boy baby quilt. I only have to hand sew it down and tidy up loose threads. I'll take a photo when I've finished it and I made this top for a girl baby quilt. I'll soon have it pinned ready to be quilted. I used Spring Fever charm packs by Me & My Sister in a disappearing 9 patch pattern. I love how quick it can be.

Our nieces are nearly ready to have their babies. My SIL and I will be stuck if they both have girls though. I should have 2 boy quilts and 1 girl quilt ready and waiting. It will have to be a quick sewing job if they are both girls.

Last night DH and I went to the movies. We saw Inception. It was fabulous. I had been warned not to go to the toilet during it and to concentrate hard on the plot. Some friends didn't like it as they got confused by the plot. DH and I like puzzles and I think that helped us keep track. It was convoluted but very well done. A thoroughly enjoyable night. I recommend it.

DH is cooking a caramel slice for a family get together tomorrow. I wonder if he needs a taste tester. Better go and see.

Take care everyone.
