Monday again - the start of another week and a change in the weather! Gone are our sunny days we have had a wet and windy day and from what the weather forecasters told us tonight on the news it may be like this for the best part of the week. I really should have been out in the garden today but that didn't happen, nor did being able to put the washing outside to dry. The up-side to this was having a great day tucking myself away in my room to sit and sew and boy what a mess my room was by the end of the day, I am trying something new and I am really enjoying it but there is fabric all over the place. I was able to get a shot of the huge oak tree next door at sunset the other day and one of our Japanese maple, the colours at this time of the year are glorious.
I finished a quick half square triangle quilt a few weeks ago, my husband bought me a bundle of batiks some time ago and I decided it was time to make something with them. He really likes greyed down colours whereas I prefer brights.
My scrappy bargello style is coming along nicely and I really want to get this one finished and on to other projects. Our youngest son and his wife are expecting their second baby on Wednesday this week so could be a busy one! They have little Jacob who is 2yrs old and they know that this one is also a boy, Jacob was just under 10lbs by only an ounce or two, needless to say Mum is a bit concerned with the issue of the weight!!
Looking forward so much to his arrival, grandchild number six. How on earth did I get to this age and become a grandma? Where have the years gone?
A treat for me this week, at least I hope my package will arrive this week, will be some of the new fabrics from Kaffe Fasset and Philip Jacobs which I ordered a few days ago from Glorious Color. Do I really need any more fabric -NO, but I couldn't resist and I don't know where I am going to put them.
Hopefully a finished project or two to show in my next post, until then hope you all have a great week.
