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.
