Wednesday. My day off….and it is. I’m being strict with myself and my employers and today is officially a day for me (well OK, a little gentle housework and laundry did sneak into the equation – but not so much as to disturb the general equilibrium!).
Whilst I had visions of sewing along happily all morning, what I actually did was the basting for the Sea Glass quilt. My absolutely least favourite part of quilting, but hey ho, needs must. Anyway it’s done – and backed with a lovely turquoise checked pattern from Fresh Palette by Carrie Nelson. I didn’t have quite enough, so the sides are augmented with some turquoisy solids.
Next up some FMQ – pebbles I think – that would fit pretty well with the whole theme.
(Sorry for the rather dark photos – we are back into the depths of winter with snow and absolutely no sun).
Something wonderful happened to me this week. I’ve been scouring Switzerland for ages trying to get my hands on some of the Aurifil threads that everyone is always raving about. Normally I don’t really enter many giveaways, but Lynne had an Aurifil threads giveaway on her blog last week – and guess what? I won! Out of 725 entries I was the first one out of the hat – and this lovely lot are winging their way to me…
Thank you so much Lynne – you made my week!! (I still can’t quite believe it!!)
Happy knitting and sewing out there ladies…and I’ll be back before long!
