I looked at my last post and was dismayed. way too long since I wrote some words. Gardens, life, fabric selections and cats intervened.
The pumpkins and leaves were made, with help from Boris, the next instalment arrived with details to make a table topper, from Carole , you can find her here. From My Carolina Home
So I looked at all my pale batiks, nothing there. I looked at the LQS shelves, last Friday nothing there. Today was to be the day for “SHOPPING’
My schedule was all sorted,a bit of this and that,
Hugh went off to fly his plane, but then there was the cat
Max was really very ill, so first catch him, and hold him tight
I’m not sure, but think he didn’t have strength to fight
One injection, then some paste, the wallet was quite hurt!!
Home again, and realise, no fabric would be bought !!!
So not a fat quarter, a scrap, a metre or a yard
This was a day when it was all just way too hard.
I need sashing for those blocks, to fit round pumpkins and a leaf
Pale blue or cream will do I think, with orange in between.
So that’s my story for today, it ends with skies so grey
Tomorrow a different story ,the rain is on its way.
This was some of the batik stash a while ago, and all that is left is the green on the middle left and top right, with a New Zealand Fern leaf motif on it.
Hugh’s cousin and I are thinking of getting a ruler foot each, for our Bernina machines, and some quilting rulers, after seeing how much easier it makes the FMQ. The one we need isn’t available in New Zealand yet, so are trying to find where they are available overseas. #72, will fit both our machines. I see they should be available in the last quarter of the year, we are there now, so hope for news very soon.
Quotation of the day, author unknown
“ True friends are like threads in a special fabric,
tightly interwoven to give beauty
and to last forever”
