"Yes, Mum I am looking after myself!"

Selvege blog had pictures of a label quilt blocks made from old labels out of jackets, shirts etc... so I flicked over to to look at the quilt made by Karen Griska. It really looks wicked. But take a look at all the buttons in the sashings.. eeekkk..

I'm taking everything a little slowly today. A bit of sewing, a break, then a bit of gardening, been to the library, bit more sewing, outside in the sun, watched DVD, bit more cutting and sewing and now checking blogs.. I'm watchingt FINDING NEMO???? (I love children's movies) and soon I'm going to work out how many more squares I need for my batik beauty. My wrists, elbows and shoulders have been very sore the last 3 days and I've been getting pins and needles in my hand .. been here done this before so have to behave. Work is so busy but I am not going to let it ruin my hands .. I NEED THEM TO SEW!

More breaks and now I'm going to have another one! Tomorrow I am going to start the bag but I wanted to make progress on the batik before I started another project.

Six more sleeps and I'm off to PN to catch up with friends for the night, and then to see Taking Off.. a Roger Hall play directed by none other than MY DAUGHTER!!! Oh my god, she never stops... I am so proud of her.

Hi Karen,

Do take it easy with your sewing, as the pins and needles sounds painful.
Congratulations on the play ~ Taking Off, sounds like fun and look forward to hearing about it.

Enjoy your weekend

The kids and I watched "Finding Nemo" too... they loved it and I had never seen the whole movie before, so that was nice.
I posted my 'hands' to you yesterday.
