Step away from the machine...put the cutter down. That's what the quilting gods were saying to me this weekend. Yesterday was a bad quilting day. I had the idea that I would make progress on my Mouthy Stitches reversible tote, which is due to be posted to my partner in a week's time. The quilting gods had other ideas.
I should have stopped when I went to pick up my ruler and hera marker to mark the quilting lines and picked up my ruler and rotary cutter. Sadly I caught myself just in time and it was another painful hour or so before the tote front was mullered. I quilted it to death and then some. Too much to unpick and so I'm back to Square 1.
To avoid a bad case of cabin fever, Zaki and I went to our old favourite today - The Majorelle Gardens. I have blogged about this place many times but despite the fact that it gets busier every time we visit, it has the world's most expensive cafe and is in danger of losing some of its charm there is still some to be found.
The book shop has a beautiful painted ceiling but any attempt to capture it is squashed by the attendants at the gardens. Why? Here is a glimpse through the window.
Well I hope to have some significant progress to share soon! Don't mess with the swap mamas either - they are in their own way a little like quilting gods.
Hope you have had a great weekend.
