I've been trying to avoid a rush before I leave for Brisbane but I now have to work over the weekend to finish the Caribbean quilt so that it can be ready for valuation.
The lights have gone on the sweet 16 and it appears I have to take it to be repaired….!!! A brand new machine no less. The whole thing has to be dismantled and taken to the shop I purchased it from. Goodness knows how long it will be away so I have to use it as it is.
Its difficult to work with external lights because they shift with the movement of the machine.
I had an idea that I wanted to quilt palm fronds around the border. The main part of the quilt is quite dense with images and I felt the lightness of the palm fronds would be an interesting contrast to the centre of the quilt.
But with no time to practice…. I have to jump right in and just do it.
Its down to the wire.
I'll get up early and continue tomorrow, its difficult to see at night.
