Finally finished – several projects for our caravan – using up just about all of the remaining camping in New Zealand fabric, featuring cute retro caravans, beach scenes and flowering pohutukawa trees. With their beautiful crimson flowers tipped in gold, the trees are known as New Zealand Christmas trees. All that remains of this fabric is just a few tiny pieces, although I have a reasonable amount of the plain grey homespun left.

My plan over the weekend was this – to complete two placemats, one apron, and a double handed oven cloth. So a little after lunch time on a wild, wet and windy Sunday the current number 6 has been knocked off my List of Six UFOs. In between showers I stepped out to get an outdoors photo, hoping that the wind wouldn’t pick everything up off the wooden bench and blow them all over the fence! I’m so pleased with another finish, and these items will reside in our caravan and get good use, I’m sure.
