I Believe in.... NOT going to the footy.

What do you do when your nation stops one Saturday afternoon for the AFL Grand Final? Do you watch the game on TV from home? Go to a friend's for a BBQ? Or, relish the time to do a little bit of sewing?

I believe in NOT going to the footy.... soI finally machine quilted "I Believe". Little cirlicues all around the outside and holly leaves and berries between the blocks.
I used a green variegated Signature thread for the quilting. Just loving it....I love to machine quilt - it's hard to find the time to sit in front of the sewing machine sometimes!!
And, I have finished the hand-applique on Square Dance. I had to zig-zag the outer border, it didn't like being handled so much while I blanket-stitched the edges.

For the last 10 years we had to go to friends for The Great Grand Final Day Day. A bunch of mostly blokes hollering at the box in the corner while trying to drink CUB dry. Party pies, BBQ sausages, the full cliche.

I would sit detached from the group and stitch. Got quite a bit done over the years. Apparently it's the best time to go shopping, too.
