Friday at work I had a mishap with a mat and my high heel shoe. I was talking to one of hte lovely ladies downstairs and stepped back but didn't lift my foot. Well down I went, it was like slow motion as I attempted to correct my posture. I attempted to grab at the desk and found lots of loose folders which didn't help me at all. Down I went!! When I went back upstairs I was telling the girls in the office and had some others rushing in thinking I was dreadly upset, not laughing. My lovely boss was on the phone to as it happen the principal at the school I used to teach at (I only know this as when the call came through - one which brightens everyone's day - I was there!) she just didn't know what was happening. Anyway all was well until Saturday when I was very sleepy and very sore! Lucky I got to sew on Friday night as Saturday was a washout!
It is amazing how the technology we have available brings people together easily.
Technology brought together three of my very dear friends on Friday night. When I moved last year my friend Kylie suggested we unite and she hatched a friendship challenge to make each other a quilt using the Depression block.
On Friday night we decided we would devote the night to making more blocks, well I constructed more blocks while Kylie chain pieced to make a start on the blocks.
What was even more special that Michelle was also sewing during the night. Being quilt good friends regular updates were made via text messaging. Just reaffirms the friendships we have made through the craft of Patchwork. Here are the two blocks I put together...
Purses. Something I was really hesistant to complete but with Michelle's encouragement I have complete two.
I gave the smaller one to a gorgeous lady I work with for her happy birthday. She said she would have to hide it from her daughter when she came home from Sydney! Now that's a complement.
