The dice rolled one this week, so I’ve been working on my New Zealand Botanical blocks, designed by Jenny Hunter. I’ve stitched them over the last year and a bit, with the earlier blocks stitched while traveling around in the caravan during our South Island holiday. My first job was to trim them to size. This is always a bit of a worry, hoping I get the stitchery centred correctly before I start slicing away.
Then I had to decide how to arrange them. This one went here and that one went there while I pondered and rearranged the blocks to my liking. Then I stitched the blocks together with cream sashing and pale green cornerstones.
It seems that every quilt needs a cat as Gemma decided that a photo of her on the quilt would make it look so much better.
Borders need to be added but this is as far as I can go on this project this week. No more time for sewing – I’ve an MRI booked for Thursday in Palmerston North. These are not painful but can be quite uncomfortable and rather noisy as the staff place you “just so” in the machine and you are told not to move! Then on Friday we are heading away in the caravan for the weekend, must pack my stitching bag to take with me.
Wonder what the weather will be like while we are away? The temperatures have certainly dropped lately and the night closes in so much earlier now. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
