Hello! Three things that are making me happy this week. One: I'm loving machine quilting. I've been putting off quilting the flock of triangles quilt. Mostly because I envisioned loads of swearing and puckering fabric and general grumpiness as I tried to squeeze a proper quilt though my domestic sewing machine. After thinking about it far too much, I just jumped in. Amazingly - amazingly - it's been ok. More than ok. Granted, I'm just sticking wth some basic zig zags, and admittedly, it's not a king size quilt we're talking about. But so far it's been a really enjoyable experience. Fun. Who'd have thought it?! I don't think I mentioned that I invested in a walking foot for my husky. It's all about the walking foot as far as I'm concerned - she chomps through the layers like butter. Love the foot.
Two: During the shed palaver last week, we moved some furniture about. This old trunk came out of storage and is now functioning as a bench seat in the living room. That is, a seat that I can chuck toys in at the end of the day! The sun even came out for a while today so I could take a photo of it (er, and the, 'characterful' (cough) half brick/half plaster wall behind it...)
Three: Henry turned 6 months old this week, and we've started feeding him solid food. He's been so lukewarm about it. After grimacing, even dramatically gagging, through offerings of rice cereal and cooked apple, tonight he downed a bowl of banana. He even smiled about it! The boy likes banana. Hooray!
What are three good things from your week? Let me know in the comments here, or if you blog about it. :)
