A Wedding to plan

A few weeks ago we had a big
surprise in the SST Family
Kym (my daughter) and her boyfriend Darren
went to Thailand for a holiday and when they came back
they announced their Engagement.

We were all very excited about this news

So Congratulations!!  Kym and Darren on your
They have set their date for May 20th 2012, which gives us
a bit of time to organise things.....luckily. 
So now we have a Wedding to organise isn't that exciting?

I have been inspired by Lizzie from
who made a new lead for her new
puppy Molly

As we have recently had a new addition to the
SST family I thought I'd give it a go.

So here he is Charlie, he is a Cavoodle, cross between a Toy poodle and
King Charles Cavalier

Isn't he the cutest??

His new lead, we have already given it a test run
and all went well, though I would only use it
for small dogs, so now he has a Designer Doggy Lead...haha!

We are very lucky to have Charlie as when we first got him he was very sick
(which we didn't know)
He had bad gastro and landed at the vets for 5 days, with drips, etc. and had to
be operated on, as they first thought he had a blockage, turned out
it was the gastro, but he pulled through and has not looked back.

So yes he does get spoilt, but how can you resist that face.

Happy Quilting!

Funky Feathers

Today is the first day that I have managed to get on my longarm
since AMQ Festival which was the beginning of October. How bad is that?!!... I have been having
withdrawal symptoms. I feel so much better for playing around and putting
into practice what I learned at AMQ.

I have been practicing on paper and couldn't wait to
get to the machine and today I did it.
My C Curve feathers

I am really pleased with how these turned out, a few little
hitches here and there but I'm sure with more practice this will

Today I tried the hump and bump way of doing these feathers
and I found that they bedded together better and had a nicer shape, so I think
I'll be changing to this way.

Can't wait for tomorrow to do some more practicing.

Happy Quilting!!
