It was a delight to wake this morning to see the sun shining and some blue sky. We have had several weeks of overcast and rainy days. And a lot of fog.
It is still chilly and there is some wind, but seeing the sun makes a big difference.
I made the most of it by taking some photos of a little finish.
This is a small quilt, probably wall hanging size. I did it as a mystery quilt workshop earlier this year.
I would have liked to make it larger but I could not track down sufficient fabric. It is from Leesa Chandler’s line, Passage to India.
I had trouble keeping the quilt still for a photo so it is waving about.
(But at least there is sunshine and blue sky.)
And the backing has nothing to so with the front! It was simply the right size.
The quilting was very simple – straight lines following the zig-zags.
Progress on all other projects is extremely limited at the moment as I have been helping my mother prepare her house for sale. We have had weeks of cleaning , sorting and de – cluttering. She is 85 and would like to move into a retirement village. The work has been worth it as we listed the property on Thursday, had an open house on Saturday, then received a wonderful offer on Monday. So, pending all the checks and balances we will be moving my mother in about 6 weeks.
I am hoping to fit in a little sewing in between packing boxes. I do have this weekend to myself and am attending a stitching group on Saturday and then a workshop with Lisa Cantlay, (FigNBerry) and Marg, (Marg Low Designs) on Sunday at Monbulk.
I hope you have a lovely weekend planned, too.
