Yesterday was my day to drive, and choose where I went. First stop, cutter blades. Woohoo!!! 30% off, and a further discount for having what is called a “ Gold Card” for those of us in the older age group, if you are 65 or older it entitles you to discount at selected stores, in some towns free bus or train travel ( very handy in Rotorua and Wellington) and is one perk at our age.
Next stop a specialised quilting place, and at the front door a sign “ 30% off fabrics”. so when all I needed was a light and a dark, one of each, to start the “wayward Transparency QAL” a few others hopped in as well.
The benefit of a smart phone, taking a photo in B&W to see if the balance from light to dark was correct. It was.
The yellow is a colour I have very little of, likewise the deep purple, and the lime green with large flowers was so pretty.
Dark purple, a dark green, and a pale green were all more goodies.The new blade is ready to go.
And I have a new project for Hugh, as soon as he can manage in the workshop. Yvonne at quilting Jet girl has a wonderful tutorial for a ladder to display quilts or wall hangings. So detailed, and easy to follow. This is on my list for a finish by Christmas.
Did you notice that I have 2 sets of light to dark fabric now? What does that say about the next project?
I have another one ( to be posted overseas) that is slowly getting finished, it has been partly done for ages, then sprained muscles,Hugh’s shoulder injury all interrupted it. Next week, all going well, I will have the next part done and it will be finished and in the bag!!
This was taken on 25th October 2014, at 7.03 a.m. and reminded me that even in October, frost will still be a threat to the new tomato plants. This morning, we had just over 5Celsius, and just the slightest white tinge on some places out there.
