When all the sewing is finished I have a million threads that need to be buried in the back of the quilt (Oh dear!) I did start off with good intentions to bury my threads as I went along but threading the needle was difficult anyway so I soon abandoned that idea. But I did buy myself a needle threader for my upcoming 40th birthday, So I might sneak that gift early to save myself lots of frustration.
Earlier this week I had a go at freemotion sewing a feather wreath , the first one was rubbish I struggled with the outside curve, so for my next attempt I drew another circle for me to sew out towards and that worked much better! I will keep practicing until I'm confident, but luckily the fabric in the centre is red so the flaws will not be very apparent!

My last Dan Brown audio book has also finished and next up is the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit that should keep me going for a while!!
