Before I get on to the quilty bits I want to say I'm so glad you enjoyed your walk on Sunday Evening. I will certainly take you to other parts of the country Gudrun, I love going on different walks when I get the chance. Thinner thighs eh Julie -that's very encouraging!
Thankyou Laurie for giving me an award, I'm glad I help keep you in touch with NZ. Anyone on my Blogroll can consider themselves also awarded as your name wouldn't be there if I didn't wish to read your blog! I realise that some of you have far more time to devote to blogging than others and that can alter depending on one's current circumstances so I allow for variation. ( I'd like to spend hours each day with all of you but...... You know....other duties.)
Some finishing has been happening while I watch the Olympics. My Funky Flower quilt is now complete. Each flower has 2 circles of handstitching. The quilt also has machine quilting in the ditch along the sashing and around the edges etc. This quilt was made to use up scraps, and I don't actually like it all that much ( never mind ). It was made with the intention to be given away so can lurk in my cupboard till I decide on it's real home.
What I do like is the tiny wee girlie's bucket bag I just made. 2 inch squares means it's really cute. I had run short of needle punch batting so got some new and it is twice as thick as I had had before. I thought it might make it hard to deal with, but no, it worked well. So well, that the bag stands up alone quite easily.
And still it rains. We are water logged!
