Firewood, with wonderful help the logs are getting cut up, the small stuff heaped to dry, the scrap stuff burnt, and all that is left at the end of a day is a little pile of ash.Truly, nothing from a tree is wasted, even the small cones will dry for a fire next year.
On the fabric scale. what I have looked to be more than enough, but I have run out of a blue, a pale background, and a suitable purple!!! I thought, when I sorted the batiks into their colours, it was a lot, but when I think of other bloggers, with huge stash, maybe mine is on the miniature level. Time to go shopping!!!
The geese for the project with Sandy, at Upstairs Hobby Room , are flying along, more rectangles and squares are cut and ready to go. This will be bright, and have lots of different combinations. The bonus with Sandy’s Geese, I have 2 smaller squares , with half triangles, from every set.They are in the top right hand corner.
I have no idea what will be in store for next month, but think maybe these blocks when all together might be the centre of a quilt, a wide sashing to outline them, then the next set of whatever we get to do. This is exciting as from one month to the next ,it is all different. Surprises wait.
Yesterday Joyce went to Wanganui, and another beautiful jar of flowers from Daphne arrived home. Freesias of every shade, all perfumed, tulips, a Dutch Iris, Ixia in various shades, and an early Ranunculus. The colours are as they are in real life, just a delicate frame in some PP.
Quotation of the day, from Dr. Seuss
