1. No rain so far this month. Actually we've had none since the 21st of last month & the garden is very dry.
2. We seem to have been extra busy, with car club, ie. committee meeting, getting labels sorted (person who usually gets them for me, was away), picking newsletters up, labeling, sorting, taking to clubrooms on Saturday, then us going out Sunday & Monday, grocery shopping Tuesday and car club again yesterday, for the coffee & cake run. Phew!!!!
3. A bit too hectic, as we are usually quieter than this, so not much on the sewing/crafting front. And all that, after I'd decided to really make a start on the UFO pile & stash reduction. The garden has taken a back seat as well. Too hot still, with 35 on our weather station this afternoon.
OK, enough of the list & onto some of what I've fitted into the start of this month.
|This is what a very messy UFO pile looks like after you've upended the tub they were residing in.|
Sorry, but I took the photo, then started sorting.
As I start getting some things done, I'll post about them. First I need to work out how many I'll be doing, although I've done the cushion & finished the shawl, which I showed on last post.
The pieced tops waiting to be quilted, amount to, I think, about 22.
I have fitted in a few things, being......
|Sewing together those squares I found in the "tub" and now awaiting borders.|
|The Attic 24 cupcake rug has also reappeared (last night was cool for the first time in ages), and I have made a start on the border. YAY!|
This quilt (below) has been sitting for ages over the rollers on the big machine. I've been debating!!!
|Said quilt, made somewhere between 1995-9. I know I was still working in the bank, at the time & showed to some friends, who thought it was terribly bright.|
One of my cats delighted in rearranging anything I put down & this was sort of her version. Her mother always sat on everything you were trying to do.
|This is one of the patterns I'm thinking of using.|
Just a few pics of our day out on Sunday.
THE KITCHEN GARDEN.
|Espaliered fruit trees.|
|A wigwam with black beans. Never seen these growing before.|
I'll leave you with one last photo of the little quilt now hanging the hall. I took down the heart one & found something a "bit autumny" coloured.
Hope to soon update the Quilt Gallery with instalment 2 and make that list of UFO's.
Take care all.
