After the weather we have been having, the idea of finding sunshine would seem an impossible task. We are getting around that by flying over the pond to spend a month with family and sharing their Summer. I have no idea about whether it will be easy to post, or reply to comments or to even make comments on your posts in that time. I will if I can, but if not, you know that I will be having too much fun!
I have used the inside, cooped up time on the last few rainy and windy days to complete a few projects.
My Southern Jewels quilt came back from the LAQ and is now bound and ready to give as a gift in August.
It has been quilted in an all over pattern of butterflies, to reflect the main fabric.
And I used my all time favourite for the backing – gum leaves. These are all fabrics from Leesa Chandler’s range, Under The Australian Sun 1 and 2.
A little bit of knitting has been done, too.
I started with one but they were a little addictive. I thought they would be bright and colourful for our little grandson’s room.
The pattern is from Twins’ Knitting Patterns Mini Shop and is a freebie. This is the same site where I bought the pattern for the knitted monkeys I have posted previously.
That’s it for now. Just the last of the packing to do. Cheers.
