I got my second block done for the Jelly Roll Sampler being run by Moose on the Porch Quilts. At this stage I am not really happy with my fabric choices but I am not making another one. Plus once its in the quilt surrounded by the other blocks and sashing it may well then be my favourite block.
I finished a couple of Poochie Bags for gifts. Pattern is from the talented Monica at Happy Zombie. They are gifts for some very cute people. It is an excellent pattern.
I also whipped up some flannel pillowcases for my son and his 2 cousins. I had a voucher for a local fabric shop and just coudn't let it go to waste. These were also the reason for the sewing machine repair.
My hubby finally bought me a new computer (laptop) as our very old one was very slow in downloading photos. Believe when I say a packed lunch was required when downloading. I still haven't got used to it yet though. However it is wonderfully quick compared to the old one and its not going to run out of virtual memory when I am trawling through Google Reader. This has been very frustrating when I am visiting all the entries in Sew and Tell.
We are having a final hurrah from summer here. Temps have been in the low 30 (degress celcius). Lucky the nights are bearable and the mornings coolish. Certainly the mad dash to the train station in the morning is not so sweaty for which my fellow commuters are thankful for I am sure.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
