The roll of the dice which determines which of my 6 listed UFOs I’m working for this week, came up trumps again for UFO number 1 – the same as last week. OK then, I’ve only just put this project away, and was really looking forward to one of the others which is a lot closer to completion. That way, I just might have a finish sometime soon. But rules are rules, so out came the caravan quilt again.
As I’m planning a checkerboard border too, I felt I really needed another strip to separate them both. But before I rushed off to the quilt shop to buy something suitable, I had a look through my baskets. There – how about this green batik I used in my daughter’s quilt, that should do nicely. So I sliced strips, measured, and stitched along all four sides.
Next was to make some more of those two patches for the checkerboard border, and start joining them together to fit down each side. I’ve stitched a few, – but perhaps I’ll need more.
I haven’t done a great deal of sewing so far this week, but we had a very important appointment to keep this morning. My daughter Nicky and her hubby Robert are off to England for their big OE for a couple of months, so we went to farewell them from Palmerston Airport. First flight to Auckland, then on to Dubai for a two night stop over, and they finally land in Heathrow. It will be a marvelous adventure for them both, and we wish them safe travels and a wonderful holiday!
Robert and Nicky, off on a big adventure
