Monday is roll the dice day (if we are home and not galivanting away in the caravan), and it brought up number one again, the same as last week. Not that I’m complaining at all, I’m more than happy to keep working on my New Zealand Botanical blocks. It seemed a shame to pack this project away last week, as I was not too far from completing the quilt top.
Number one again this week
So some cutting, pinning and stitching took place over the last couple of days and I now have borders on my top. I decided on a dark green leaf fabric for the inner border. Then the outer border used some pretty fabric printed with New Zealand flowers, which had been tucked away for quite some time. It seemed just the thing to use on this project.
While I was cutting and stitching, I also prepared the binding, so it’s always good to get that job out of the way. The backing is pieced too, I wonder why it seems that the fabric I have is never quite wide enough? My next job will be to layer and pin the quilt sandwich.
Binding is prepared
We are never quite sure what our Birman cat Gemma gets up to at night, as she doesn’t often come and sleep on the bed with us. Although strangely enough, she always does sleep on our caravan bed when we are away. Quite often when we get up in the morning we find her little toys in strange places. Lately her two little mouse toys have been sopping wet, so we presume that she drops them in her water bowl, for whatever reason. Poor little mousies!
