After several days sitting at the sewing machine, I’m pleased to say that Horse Quilt No2 is now a finished top. The final two rows of blocks were added, then the plain black borders were cut, measured, pinned and stitched on. I laid it on top of our bed, to see how it looked.
How about a photo out on the clothesline? There was just a touch of gentle rain falling, but I didn't think the horses would mind, as they were galloping through the river!
I’m pleased with how it all came together, and I do hope grand-daughter Megan likes it, when she finally receives it. Gemma has been helping too, keeping my seat warm by the sewing machine while I’ve been doing other things.
The gentle rain has gone, and we are sweltering! Seems that all those extra high temperatures that Australia was melting under have flown across the Tasman Sea to spend time here in New Zealand. Our home town of Levin has been experiencing temps in the early 30s, unheard of here. Its rather like being away on a tropical holiday without leaving home. I’m doubly hot as I’m slaving away over a hot stove this afternoon, doing some baking. We are off on another caravan adventure tomorrow for several days and I like to have some things prepared to take away. In case you are wondering, I’ve made a quiche, a chocolate slice, and prepared some potato salad.
