That's a Challenge.
Now that's a fabric that I doubt I would ever have chosen to use myself.! Yesterday at my group ( Tauranga Patchwork and Quilting ) it a was put out as the challenge fabric for members to make a quilt not larger than I metre square and using at least 25% of that fabric , along with fabrics of your own choice. So far , all I have done is put the fabric into the photo copier and have a paper sample ready to cut up and try some ideas. I will keep you posted on this one!
The above and everything else I am working on has till our Annual Exhibition in September.
I also have to make some 4 patch blocks in Country ( dull ) fabric to be part of a group quilt being made to be the 1st prize in a raffle. ( I don't have much in that type of fabric cause I like bright clear colour.)
This morning Roger dug the first of our red Kumara ( sweet potatoes ) to see if they were ready. They seem big but not a huge crop...We'll try some roasted tonight...We have friends coming over ..... She is a vegetarian...So we always try to cook something special for her ( vegetable tagine ) and cause he likes meat and doesn't get much, a roast for him and us. It usually works out quite well.
I am really disappointed that today's netball game with the Magic playing in Christchurch is not being televised......They are covering 2 other games....We want them all covered!!!! They do all the Super 14 rugby games don't they!!
Last night the Crusaders had a good win over the Brumbies!!! ( 33 - 3 ) Our guys play tonight.
