With a weekend caravan club rally coming up, what could be better than leaving home a day early? So we did, and enjoyed a three day weekend over the Rimutaka Hill at Kahutara. My sewing machine with UFO number 3 sitting on the cabinet was left behind, but I took my stitching bag with me, plus my knitting bag.
It was a lovely weekend, meeting up with friends, and relaxing in the glorious Wairarapa Autumn sunshine, and all I had time for was a little knitting. Never mind, every little bit helps. I’m knitting a chunky wool cardigan for myself, and I’m up to the sleeves.
My knitting came away in the caravan too
It was all systems go on our return home. First the caravan had to be unpacked, the fridge washed out, and the floor vacuumed, and the cat brought inside. A load of washing was put in the machine and set going, then it was time for a rather late lunch. Then the caravan was moved around to it’s parking spot. It was late afternoon by this stage and I thought I might as well get a little time at the sewing machine. So I sat and sewed, and can report that I have now completed stitching in the ditch around the sashing strips and all the maple leaves on UFO number 3. Phew – I’m pleased that’s done. Now all I need to do is some FMQ in each of the leaves.
I’ve finished all my “stitch in the ditch”
It’s a good place to pause on this particular UFO, and I’m really looking forward to rolling the dice tomorrow (Monday) morning and see which number comes up for me to work on during the coming week. What will it be, I wonder?
