I started this post about 3 weeks ago, but never got it finished, so I will carry on from here.
In the meantime, I have been able to sew a little and have managed another couple of Water Bottle Carriers. I am heading down to Queenstown at the end of the week, for our National Quilt Symposium, so I’m thinking these will come in very handy.
I also managed some Barbara Brackman Civil War Blocks
Block 11 - London Square
This was a nice easy block to make.
Another easy one!
Block 12 – Louisiana
Just arrived home from Brisbane, Australia from hot humid weather to rain. Still can’t complain as we needed it.
I have so missed my sewing time, but now I’m due to have an operation on the base of my thumb to remove an arthritic joint, so I will probably be out of action for a week or so. Maybe I’ll still be able to sew on the machine, if I get my ‘stuff’ organised.
Before I left I had to make a couple of birthday gifts and a ‘happy to see you gift’ for my friend in Brisbane Julie.
It’s a wonder she’s still my friend, as I was supposed to meet her at her club day on the 18th but somehow got it into my brain that it was on the 19th. I arrived only to find no-one there, and on ringing Julie was asked “where were you yesterday?” DUH!! I was so disappointed as I had been really looking forward to catching up and meeting the “girls” Julie managed to organise her work day a couple of days later and we had OUR catch-up and gossip!!
