At the beginning of the year I decided that each month I would post the photo I had chosen for our calendar for that month. So here we are in mid-March and I realise I completely forgot to do it. So here it is:
This is a villa on the shores of Lake Como at a place called Corenno Plinio. We had a picnic lunch there on the holiday I took in September 2011.
I have been busy this month and have done quite a bit of my lap quilt. I am machine quilting it but it is so long since I have done anything this size that my skills are deteriorating. There are numerous places where the machine has jumped stitches. I cannot be bothered to undo them all. I think the problem is the machine going over pins even though I take them out as I sew. I did once have a problem with the needle jumping that required professional help but I do not think that is the case this time.
I have brought the quilt into the house so that I can end off the threads in comfort. Big mistake. Pania is addicted to wadding and when I have left it lying around a couple of times I have returned to find she has chewed the wadding on the edge. Now it is living in a pillow case. Here is a photo of Pania and Hinemoa on the quilt. They just think quilts are for them.
