Autumn is approaching

We are feeling the start of autumn here at the moment which means that all I want to do is sit inside and hand sew with a cup of hot chocolate and a good film. I have finally got into the Sopranos (I know really behind the times) and I am madly sewing Christmas presents for my family. Two presents are done, one is waiting basting and quilting (I hate basting) and one is miles behind the rest.
We have turned our clocks back this week which means I have a few more weeks of light mornings with Max. It is nice to be able to run around in the park with him and let him wear himself out.

This morning the trees were really showing the start of turning (it all happens so quickly and before we know it we will be at Christmas)

In true Halloween style, I think a night on the sofa with 'The Nightmare before Christmas' and some quilt binding. Nothing scary as hubby is out for the evening =)
Enjoy Halloween!!!

Local talent

The Cambridge Quilters had a quilt exhibition last weekend which was fantastic. They are a group of very talented quilters and I hope one day to be as skilled as many of them.
A few highlights of the show were...

My little helper

I have the best little quilting apprentice in the world. I call him my inspector and he will quickly tell me if I am doing anything wrong...

He watches my machine quilting...

He shows me how to lay the quilt flat on the floor properly...

and he checks that i'm basting it correctly...

How did I ever get by without my little helper??
