It's Been a Busy Day

Didn't sleep well last night, I have a few aches and pains at the moment and they were keeping me awake also the daylight savings change hasn't helped.  When I can't sleep I usually resort to the Ipod and my selection of podcasts to help me drop off only this time I didn't and kept listening.

I was listening to a Podcast by Pat Sloan it is a couple of weeks old,  and she interviewed Leah Day and she is writing a blog and posting video's 365 days of free motion quilting filler designs.  This is a fantastic resource, I have only viewed a couple of video's but they are pretty good.  I think I will be spending a bit of my free time here in the coming weeks.

I also spied her must have kit of machine quilting goodies and as I was going to the AMQF today with Helen, I thought it might be worth a look to see if I could get a couple of the items.  And about the second vendor we went to had the 3 items on my list.  I also picked up a few Aurifil threads and looked at some truly spectacular quilts.  I think I might head back next year and get organised to do some classes.

We rounded up the morning with lunch and when I got home the kids were all up for a trip down to the beach for an ice cream and a walk.  It was a tad nippy down there with the breeze but it has been a lovely long weekend with some warmth in it for a change.

Must say the time change has left me a bit discombobulated as well.

I hope you get a better nights rest tonight.

Was the show any good? I forgot about it totally until you mentioned it.
