triathlon take 2

OK so the count down begins again for this Sundays Triathlon. This time my poor team partner has been ill all week (I have an advantage moohawhahahahahha) no seriously I do feel bad for my team mate and hope that she is feeling better by Sunday (gotta say that as she might read my blog!!). We haven't done nearly as much training for this event but we have been keeping up the fitness in general so I know we will be fine.

We are going to go down to the beach on Saturday as they are having a registration/pre tri talk thingy so she thought we could take advantage of this and check out transition and where we will be riding and running. I hope that I don't panic and loose my bike rack position and waste valuable time like I did in my last tri. If the weather isn't too bad we might even have a dip in the ocean, if its cold I honestly don't know what we will do on Sunday, freeze I guess!!

I am making my sister in law in London a quilt, its now ready to be quilted by yours truly, (thanks to my friends for helping me baste the other night) I also have a baby quilt for the great niece (EEK I'm going to be a great Aunt!!) this is awaiting its binding to be sewn down.

I also have a quilt to make for my cousins new baby here, my Mum has 'commissioned' me to make all my cousins babies quilts as they have arrived, so another little girl turned up a few months ago. I am using a Moda bake shop recipe but have found the directions a tad confusing so have sat and re written them so that I can understand them. I'm not saying that they aren't well written, just confusing to me! Its a lovely pattern and I will post a picture once its done.

I have however run out of time to quilt this before I leave on our trip to the UK (did I mention this??) So I have employed the services of my lovely friend Anita to do the deed while I am gallivanting across the globe with my family. Then when I return I can pop on the binding and away we go!!

I am in awe of you doing a triathlon. I did some running last year, but to combine that with two other things would be crazy (on my part that is). All the best for the big event.
