Beautiful Cape Town and a finish!!
Yesterday we had lunch @ a restaurant on Woodbridge Island in Milnerton and these yachts were our view! It was a beautiful day in Cape Town, and even though finishing Lindie's quilt(top) was so close, I still couldn't spend the day indoors. So we went out and had a lovely lunch at Maestro's. We were basking in the sun and sipping our drinks (I had a Safe sex on the beach! - a cocktail with no alcohol!)
We came home and had a afternoon nap and I managed some sewing last night. I was so fired up to finish the quilt I struggled to fall asleep and said to my hubby I might sew before church this morning... so this morning he woke me a bit earlier as usual and asked me if I still wanted to sew before church and served me coffee in bed! I managed to sew down 2 borders and pin the other 2 on. We went out after church, came back, had a afternoon nap! and I managed to finish the top!! I am thrilled!!
I have had a quilt on the frame since January, so tomorrow I will definitely start quilting. I have 3 tops to quilt now! And another basted which I want to quilt without the frame.( I have the Bernina 820 and it's frame.) Not my best purchase ever... but I'll try again....
