God, I'm slack.

I seem to be spending an inordinate amount of time doing not very much and before I know it the day is over. And I have the flu, which makes my brain really fuzzy around the edges.

Everything is just blah.....

But, I have been working on my Australiana quilt, in a desperate attempt to finish it and get it out of my hair. If you ever hear of me doing another commissioned quilt, stop me. I am not enjoying it one little bit. I have pieced some setting corners for the big medallion of gum leaves, and I have decided to not applique anything else for the top. I have ordered some wattle, flannel flower and a grevillea print to finish it off, so I am waiting for that to arrive. Who wants to bet that the parcel man will show up with it tomorrow morning? It will be the third morning in a row he's been to this house if it does. (Monday am, my prize from the Sydney quilt show - 10 metres of fabric and a quilt batt, and this morning my quilts came back). I will endeavour to be out of my Monkey Moods PJ's this time!

Back to the Australiana quilt - the person it is being made for is a very impatient type apparently, and has been nagging our friend-in-common about when it will be done. She knows nothing about quilts and doesn't get that you can't just whip one up instantly. Well, you could, but it will not be a king sized, appliqued monster. I've changed a lot of what I was going to do, and it should go together quite easily now. (See, I'm trying to convince myself that I will enjoy it. )

Still Life with Cats:

Honestly, I spend most of my day shuffling cats off my seat to another seat, and before I can sit down the other one has replaced the original one. It's a plot.

The other thing I have been playing with is Electric Quilt, trying to work out a quilt (or 2) for this years show. This is one idea I am toying with right now - the circles will be paper pieced, I lurve paper piecing! It is sooo easy!! And accurate!!

I have, like, 30 versions of this quilt so far. This one is my favourite so far, but that might change by tomorrow.
