It’s Monday again

I’m home from a weekend away in the caravan – and as it’s Monday I get to roll the dice again.  What number will I get this week?.  After slaving away on my Christmas Stars and Nine Patch quilt last week, and not getting nearly enough accomplished, I was prepared to have to put it away and work on something else.  I’d decided when I first started with my dice rolling that there would be no cheating or manipulations of numbers, and the quilting angels must have been on my side this week as number 5 came up again, two weeks in a row. So I’m a happy quilter, and fingers crossed, will get to complete this project this time around.


The big question as I started to quilt the remaining stars – will my roll of variegated thread last the distance?  Yes it did, with a little to spare.

Almost at the end of the roll

But I’m not finished yet -  I then decided that I needed to quilt in the ditch around each star.  So that’s my plan, and I’ll get to the finish line eventually, enjoying the journey as I go along.

My dad would say that getting there was the best part of the journey!

I do hope, now that you have had a second roll of the dice on this one, that you are able to complete.

Well done with your perseverance - it is looking good.
