I’m having a break from working on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge project, that pesky boat quilt which needs to be beaten into submission. So I’ve dug deep into my big bag of batiks (yet another RSC project) and I’ve been stitching more Cobblestone blocks. I don’t have all the colours of the rainbow in these batiks, just shades of purple, aqua, green, blue, pink and cream, so I do hope the blocks all go together nicely.
More blocks made
What I really need to do is lay all the blocks out on the bed and see how many more I need to make. I may be surprised, there could be enough, or then again, maybe I need to cut and stitch a whole lot more. Luckily I’ve still got plenty of fabric left in the bag.
Mending has also been attended to, and I often wonder why on earth I put this chore off. Usually, it takes such a short time that I could have finished it weeks ago. Another job I’ve done is make the binding for the afore mentioned boat donation quilt – I usually prepare the binding when I get the backing done, but I’ve been a little slow this time. But it’s all ready to apply when the quilt is finally quilted, whenever that may be.
Today it’s pouring with rain, typical Spring weather here when Mother Nature really cant make up her mind what to do. Some days lately have been nice and warm, some have been rather windy, and others like today, pouring with rain. Which makes it a perfect day to stay home and stitch, doesn't it.
