Walking on sunshine ...

Well, maybe not quite walking on sunshine, but definitely enjoying a sunny day for the first time in ages! Toowoomba has had maybe three or four sunny days since Christmas and I'm starting to feel a bit like a mushroom!! So, today's mostly blue sky with genuine sunshine was wonderful.

I spent today at The Quilter's Angel in Highfields sewing with Mary, Deb and the girls from Fresh Hope - lots of laughs, lots of new friends and some frustration with sewing machines that weren't feeling co-operative. Most of the girls had very little or no sewing experience, so the learning curve was steep, but the end results were pretty good. After sewing some fluffy seatbelt protectors for the kids, the girls began their new project, a cool quilted bag with a stitchery panel on the front. Can't wait to see the finished products, as the girls are already starting to put their own little touches to them. I love a class situation where everyone starts with the same basic pattern, but the finished projects all end up unique. Will keep you posted.

Anyway, since last night's sleep was disturbed by some neighbours having philosophical discussions in the street at around 2am, I think it's time for this tired little teddy bear to crawl into bed. So, til next time,
