Lots of Quilting Happening.

I am making very good progress on the next baby quilt. It is raining a lot so I'm getting to stay inside and concentrate on it. ( will show photos when finished. ) 
I am also making steady progress on felt ball # 24 which is for the same expectant Mum as the quilt. I have just 3 motifs yet to add (  9 are done )

 This arrived yesterday and I haven't even had time to read it but know it is there when I want a creative fix.

 Last Friday at our P and Q  Group Milton & Julie  Wright came over from Morrinsville with their trailer load of fabrics . We had a good turn out of ladies plus some from Papamoa so I think it was worth while for them.
 I purchased 2 larger pieces for backing ,some fat quarters and 4 other fabrics I liked  - a metre each. Yummy fabrics - I love batiks.
 We have been having computer problems and this PC has had to have a new hard drive after a power pole was struck by a mad driver - yes we did have surge protection but that did not prevent the damage. Then when we get it back Xtra ( telecom ) has issues and things still aren't 100%. We even got a malicious phone  call ( which was the result of the server issues )- offering to fix our computer if we let them have access to it....yeah right. R used some carefully selected words to tell them about their pedigree. 
 Off now to take my cousin out to lunch for her Birthday.

What luscious fabrics! Ah yes, computers......we had a fried modem some years ago while living in the Big Smoke, a storm hit just as our computer was being switched off.
