Now we are back into the swing of things, I've been pondering a blog post for a few days. But what to focus on? I've been doing a bit of this and a bit of that with nothing particularly driving me to write it down. So I thought I'd just do a conglomeration post, showing my thisis and thats and maybe that will encourage me!
I've made a bag - and loved it so much and had so many positive comments that I'm making another one (sitting flat on the chair) and writing a pattern. (And by crikey, I admire people who churn out pattern after pattern. Those things are a drag to write!)
A close up of the quilting on the other side of the bag.
I've recovered from two weeks camping and I've started exercising to combat the Christmas/New Year's/Summer/Just Because bulges.
(Truth: the sum total of my exercising was a half-hour walk this morning.)
I've climbed and conquered Mt Washmore (the nickname I have fondly given my washing pile).
I've laughed at the cat.
I've started a new night-shift project with some of my favourite prints. These squares are cut to finish at eight inches to show off the fabrics.
I've oogled the ducklings (anyone want a pekin duck for their pond - I've got a few spare!)
I've played with organza and tui and low-volume strips (no you are not seeing double, I've just offset the organza overlay).
