16/06/2015   Photo a Day  Anything

As I am quilting on black fabric with black thread the light today is very poor so I think I will have to attack this basket of ironing and maybe even do some housework!
Tomorrow I'm off to Sydney for the Quilt Show with three of my friends for the day,which means an early start but no one  has to drive we are going on the train.
