Do I not have enough to do in the next 10 days, without taking on a challenge?? There is an online Sew-a-long, called Wiggle Me Colourful, you can visit it here. Click to follow the link.
I have joined, chosen the batiks, ironed, cut, and sorted. This is a huge project for me, as we have 10 days before going to Wellington!!! But I always do best under pressure, so here is the first step .
5 sets of strips, colour graded, in green, blue, lemon/orange/pink/ then teal and purple/mauve. The background fabric is a rich deep blue.
Here is the finished quilt from Sandy W ( courtesy of the internet) but as I am using fabric in my stash, and not a jelly roll, mine will be slightly different.
The other day Hugh suggested a day out, to find some snow. We drove and drove, 2 hours, and it was always round that next elusive corner. Farmland on the way, and some patches of where a heavy frost lingered on the banks by the roadsides.
If you look very hard, there is a small patch of snow, centre back, a long way away.
Hay bales on the roadside, wrapped in plastic. What was wrong with the older oblong bales, a one-man lift weight, using an ordinary farm trailer? No need for something fancy, that unrolls them, and the plastic to dispose of? Deer fence netting all in this area, but they were a long way back.
At home we had a New Zealand native pigeon . or Kereru, staying a while in the Elm Tree.
Quotation of the day, from C S Lewis

or to dream a new dream”
