Quilt in progress

I had a layout published in Scrapbook Trends back in February and this week I finally got my two copies of the magazine, layout and payment! The poor parcel man - I've been stalking him for months waiting for it to arrive. Well I am giving away my extra copy of the magazine so please leave me a comment on this post and I will choose someone at random! Come on, leave a comment. No excuses (unless you already have it - that's the only excuse I'll accept).

I'm about three quarters of the way thru Tassy's quilt top. Boy it's sooooo much faster than the last quilt I made! I love it and think the colours look much better in real life than they look in any of the photos I've posted on my blog.

In other news... I got out of my recent speeding fine! Woot! But I did learn my lesson and have been much more careful trying to stick close to the speed limit. Dave was disgusted that I got the infringement withdrawn. He threw the letter on the floor and stamped on it. He declared he will wear a blonde wig and speed past all the speed cameras so I get another fine. I declare that he is quite immature and should be happy that I saved us $157 (which I wouldn't have had to have saved if I hadn't sped - but I don't think that's the point now, is it?).

Oh the quilt top is looking gorgeous Yvette! I've just been making one very similar with a friend. It's the first time either of us have had a go at making a quilt and it was so much fun! I'm going to make one for Madi very soon...just as soon as I find a little extra time! :)

Hey well done on getting out of your fine! LOL about Dave.
