On a sunny summers day

I'm playing with the new app on my phone....

while the fabrics for my next quilt dry in the summer breeze.

What are you doing today? Started any new projects?

Hi Carole,

I've had a terrible thing happen. I found project I had completely forgotten about. Not a little project, a queen sized quilt... bought the fabric 3 years ago, in or 4 quilt shops in 2 or 3 cities as I recall, printed the block instructions and the 7 border instructions each month for a year... but I only made one block. How could this happen? Really? I have no idea! It's lovely fabric. I remember about a year ago a friend asked me "didn't you have another quilt, remember when we went shopping in Wellington?" and I denied it. Well it turns out she was right!!! Today I have improved the situation by 150% by making 1 and 1/2 blocks (VBG).

Seriously though it's quite exciting because it's like finding hidden treasure.

Hope you're enjoying your holiday

I am trying to finish a few things off. High on my list is my wall hanging. I have renamed it and feel some renewed enthusiasm.

There is lots of mending and shortening to do in the sewing basket and I want to make a cushion for my eldest daughter and little bed covers for the twins I mind.

Lots more of course.

Hoping for a very productive year.

I have at least 6 different projects calling to me, but I am going to focus on working on a Book of Days today. Hopefully it will end up being a really cool journal of my year. It is a free class taught by Effy Wild. I'm finding that it is fun to paint and make a mess on paper as well as work with fabrics.

Alas no. I'm trying really hard not to start anything new. I have an embarrassing numer of UFOs. Sigh. :-)
