With two finishes recently, my List of Six needed updating. The question was – what shall I choose to add to the list? You all know that I have plenty lurking away in various bins or bags. There was one in particular that I had planned to add – but I couldn’t find it! Next time, perhaps.
1: Animal ABC quilt – coming along nicely
2: Horse quilt number 2 – not yet started
3: New Zealand native birds – replaces Winter Welcome wall-hanging
4: Soul Searching – replaces Candlewick Table runner
5: Xmas Stars and Nine Patches – up to the machine quilting on this
6: Polka Dot Apron – not yet started
Ready and waiting
I’ve finally washed, ironed, and put away all the fabric I purchased recently at the Fabric Bazaar. The hand dyes bled and bled after several washes. So I taught them a lesson and left them outside on the clothesline for several days through several showers, sunshine and wind. Hopefully all the excess dye has now gone.
All ready to use now
Rolling the dice won’t happen for the next couple of weeks – we are off and away for a two week trip up to Waihi in our caravan. And look at the glorious morning we woke up to. Clear blue skies, and the sunshine is kissing the hills behind our home. It’s a great day to travel, indeed.
It’s a beautiful morning to travel
But I’ve packed both my stitching bag and knitting bag to take with me, plus a couple of library books to keep me occupied in any spare time. And when we return home, I’ll be really keen to get started on my list again.
