Saturday was a day out, 142 km, or 88 miles, from our place to Masterton, in the Wairarapa. ( And then the same as we came home, a long way to drive for a metre of fabric!!) There is a super quilting fabric shop there, ( Click on the link to find them)
visit them here at Quilter's Lane, Masterton
I wanted the border fabrics for the Wiggle-Me Quilt. I was so lucky, found the perfect choices, then we had lunch by the small man made lake, Ducks, Coots, paddle boats for hire, the occasional policeman and police-lady wandering past.
I think the first photo is of an Australian Coot, black with white face , and the pair are Mallard Ducks. A White Swan, aka paddle boat, the Jolly Roger, and various other craft, as children with parents valiantly paddled their way across the water.
I have a variegated blue for the first border, a lighter one for the second border, and a dark blue with green tones for the final one, This will make it the right size for our bed. Hugh said this one was for us, when he first saw the top in an unfinished state!!!
And a fitting finish for today, a Felicity Cat Scan is the right way to make sure all fabric is correct!!!
Quotation of the day, from Henry Ward Beecher
“ It’s easier to go down a hill than up , but the view is much better at the top”
