This November has flown, with hospital visits, Hugh’s cataract surgery, a loose pipe in the laundry( no details there, words were too graphic for publication) more driving and 3 deadlines to meet. And one more all done and posted, this is a surprise . No Photos Yet!!! All done on time, whew!!!
I look at the snow where quilts are displayed at Kathy’s place, you will find her at Tamarack Shack .They lie gracefully on that white stuff, and look stunning. Today the One Block Wonder November block was finished, but like a mushroom, it started out as a small idea, then I found this wonderful design, and thought it suited the batiks I had. Well, it grew and grew .
Inside was dull and boring, and the light wasn’t great. Outside was wet, so I used the large sun umbrella, in case this was the best light all day.Then later, sunshine came, I strung a stretchy cord between 2 Cabbage Trees, and hoped for the best.
Under the umbrella shows the colours best, and I need some ides, do I bind this, at 32 inches, or add a border in deep blue or burgundy, or maybe 2 borders? I thought this was going to be a small project, but now it is finished, I am so glad I persevered. My Dad would be so proud, as he knew how I can leave things to the last minute. This wasn’t the case here, just daily life and all else intervened.
And, my post this week had a super delivery. Mug rugs, YES, there were 2, from Tiff at Folded Gingham, as well as some lovely buttons, and fat quarters in reds and green. Tiff, thank you so much, I hope your parcel has arrived by now, I managed to meet the deadline, not by NZ dates, but yours, and Kimberly, you can find her at Camp and Cottage Living, many thanks for my wonderful mug rug swap partner.
Maybe there will be a few days respite, with just one more sewing project to finish tomorrow, our younger daughter’s birthday is at the end of next week. No photos, as a surprise will be posted.
