So here it is Alex quilt No 1. Alex chose the black with white square fabric which I used for the inside border but it looked very busy and I didn't work out the measurements correctly.. That's what happens when you start a quilt from the outside in ah?
So I undid the middle and here is Alex's quilt No 2 and final. He loves his rugby. I think he'll like this one.
|Red and black jersey for Canterbury, on the right is Waikato jersey. Top row black and white is Hawkes Bay (Magpies) where Alex lives and green and white is Manawatu where I used to live.|
I don't know who plays in red and white but I needed another jersey haha.
I've still used Alex's fabric but fussy cut it.
|These rugby jerseys are Alex's ripper rugby team, his great-Grandad's Excelsior rugby team and of course The All Blacks|
|It's still rather busy but I think the rugby Kiwi's make the other colours jump out.|
And more celebrations today. My daughter Annette was offered a job as General Manager of a Rest Home and Retirement Village. It's been 3 months since the first interview, a lot of tests and proposals and finally today she heard the news.
|Annette, 37 years young.|
And my son Ken who is staying with me at the moment signs his contract for a permanent job on Monday. He's been working through an agency for 3 months driving trucks and now they've given him the job. And I'll get a lovely discount at Davis Trading.. Yay!!
