Typical spring weather here, up and down. Thursday we had a nasty Southerly come through, bringing snow. It was proper snowing up at Mum’s place and really cold here. The hill road was closed, so Ian had to catch the train home , and then he missed the morning train back on Friday morning. Bummer. Then we had a lovely fine weekend. Sunday we were all out playing tennis in the paddock, and relaxing in the sun.
There were a few interruptions from the water boy
Who lost his clothes part way through the game. Can you tell he’s enjoying the warmer weather?
It was good fun!
I’ve been trying to get all my quilting bee blocks done before I go to hospital.
For Rachel, cottage bee, september. Great fabric choice, and her tutorial for this block is great. Loved making this.
This one is for Montserrat – live piecefully bee – October
She asked for something traditional, so I went log cabin. I tried something harder, but couldn’t make sense of the pattern. Oh well.
I enjoyed making Rachels’ block so much that I decided to make use of some of my scraps. This is destined to become a mini quilt for a the wall. It’s about 16 inches square.
I ‘ve finished the last jumbo log cabin block for my park slope quilt, I just need to get a bit more fabric for the sashing and backing. I’m not so great at planing ahead for my quilting needs. I tend to just get the main fabric, and then have to hunt about for solids and backings to match. A good example of this is the NZ quilt I’m making for our bed. I got all the blocks made last week, and have been able to do the vertical sashing, but have run out of fabric for the horizontal sashing. The local shop won’t have any in for a another week either. I haven’t got backing fabric either as that’s going to cost about $50 that I don’t have. So there won’t be any pics of that quilt till I have the sashing finished.
Thanks to the change for daylight saving Cam wasn’t up until after 7.30 this morning. Yay !!!
