That’s what I was doing over the Easter break. We were away at a caravan rally at Poroutawhao School, Levin, and I took my black and white shaggy quilt away with me, and my pair of sharp scissors, to snip away at all the seams. I couldn’t do too much snipping at a time, as it was a bit hard on the hands, so spread the job out over the weekend.
It is only a lap quilt, but it still took quite some time. Finally I was on the last row, thank goodness. The next step will be to wash the quilt, and dry it, to fluff up all those snipped seams.
There was a Decorated Hat Competition in the weekend. I decided to make use of my lilac sun hat and spent a little time adding decorations. A length of lemon lace was tied around the hat, then I stitched tiny little yellow Easter chicks, purchased from the $2 on top of the hat. It was then finished off with a bunch of Easter Eggs (on wire) tucked jauntily through the lace, and I used another wired egg as a brooch.
