What on earth happened to the past seven days?
Is it just me or do the days and weeks fly by, I don't think I'm the only one.
I have a list of quotes by Dr Seuss, they're real gems, this one sums up the time issue:
"How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?"
A message for us all!!
So, on the quilting side I have finished Section 8 of
Gypsy Wife. I stuck it up on the wall yesterday alongside
the other seven sections, photo below.
No major seams sewn yet so it's a bit higgledy-piggledy!
Section 8 is on the left hand side.
I spent time with my GO cutter strip dies, pieces of very old Hoffman fabrics
and KF Collective
the left hand side are 1" strips. I have in mind a number of quilts using strips
of various widths, lots more to cut before I make a start.
Assigned two of my plastic storage drawers to
my KF Collective quarter yard pieces. I had culled these when I made a start
on Gypsy Wife, all the pieces less than 1/4 yard I set aside
for this project.
I began trying to stock up on 1/2 yards or larger a few years ago, I did a pretty good job,
there's no more space in my wire baskets!! No more fabric buying!!
The garden grabbed a little bit of my attention, but it's so very dry,
we really need rain and hopefully this weekend. My Canna lilies seem to
be perfectly happy even with the dry soil.
The "Peace" rose is blooming beautifully, goodness knows
we could use some of this in the world today!
And below she (I always think of roses as "she") had a visitor.
OK, I'm all done now and heading back to the cutting table.
Enjoy the weekend.
See you all soon.
