Rain or no rain, the washing must get done. After a ten day extended Easter break away in the caravan, there was washing galore – even though I attended to laundry duties “en route”. Now I have a mountain of ironing to deal with. (Just as well I quite enjoy ironing, and washing too, for that matter.)
I did a little hand stitching, and a little knitting while on holiday, but really want to get back to my sewing machine. Can’t wait to start work on a new quilt for my daughter Nicky. I purchased some pink and green fabric during a previous trip away - see my fabric buying spree on previous post here. Nicky has quite specific ideas about what she wants, so I’m happy to oblige. She wants nine patches, so I’ve sliced plenty of strips to get started..
When I’ve done a bunch of these, I’ll start making some appliqué alternate bocks. Mmmm, better check my supply of Steam-a-seam to make sure I’ve got enough on hand. Guess I’ll occasionally keep working on a UFO or two as well. To be perfectly honest, I’ve got a whole heap of these to chose from.
