We had lots of fun hosting a small NY Eve party with a few friends and neighbours last night.
I was pleasantly surprised when Mr Stitch offered to help me assemble my hand quilting frame I have been painting recently.
This offer was made despite the fact he was a little worse for wear. No I didn't ask him, totally his suggestion. What a great guy!
There were lots of pieces to assemble...
including over 20 pieces of timber, lots of poles and hardware.
We assumed fairly traditional roles where I read the instructions and lined up the nuts, bolts etc, and Mr Stitch assembled the pieces.
He did need a snack and a little nap half way through while I started to assemble the poles. After all, it was after 4am when we were tucked up in bed. Something to do with a darts challenge laid down by Mr 16 and friends to the over 40 year old males. You know how fathers cannot resist a challenge laid down by their teenage sons.
It's now finished and ready to have a quilt attached for hand quilting. Unfortunately I have a slight problem with the leader cloths I purchased. So, it will stand empty for a few days until that is sorted.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2015.
Happy New Year!
