Caledfwlch!...(ish)...

Whoso pulleth out this swordscissors of this stonefloorboard is the rightwise born kingqueen of all EnglandQuiltland.*


Had a great night last night stitching and chatting with local quilting group at one of our 6pm to midnight Sit & Sew Pizza Nights...we have these once or twice a year at the local hall and it's always great fun to just sit and stitch for up to six hours.  During the course of the evening it became apparent that the rightful queen of Quiltland would need to be found to remove these scissors stuck in the floorboards...
And the rightful queen is Rosie (no blog) who had traversed the land, travelling many miles across the wilderness to join us at our gathering!

OK so they are her scissors which took off of their own accord and embeded themselves in the floorboard below our trestle table but it was hilarious at the time...maybe you just had to be there *LOL*...

In exciting news I actually came up with a finish on the night! Wahoo...cue cheers and wild applause...thank you, thank you, thank you very much (she says with the voice of Elvis in her head)...OMG I am tired this morning...oh yes, the finish...
Ta dah! The "strange pink" table runner is a done deal...don't you just love the binding fabric...well I do and it's my runner so I win...found at Somerset Patchwork on Monday, washed, ironed and on as binding on a finished article by midnight Friday...it's amazing...

Off to Bacchus Marsh today for their quilt-in.  The guest speaker is Michelle thingy whatsit from Adelaide, um, oh yes, Michelle Hill (yeah 'coz that is such a hard name to remember...slapping forehead to wake up the brain cells!)...time to go and pick up Miss Rosie and be on our way...

Happy Stitching...

*yes huge poetic licence taken here..Caledfwich is Welsh for Excalibur...and yes I know Excalibur was the sword of the lake not the sword of the rock...but as the sword of the rock doesn't have have an awesome name and there isn't a lake in the middle of the local memorial hall unless the roof has a hole in it and it is raining (which is doesn't and which it wasn't) I'm going with using Excalibur...
