My Homes for Hope quilt top got completed to this stage today. But is it finished? It is large enough for a topper for a single bed but no overhang.
I have been in the garden planting my garlic.( shortest day ) While there I decided to pull out this pathetic effort at a row of carrots. They will form part of our dinner tonight . I/ we really can't grow good carrots in this area- compared to Ohakune carrots that we get so cheaply. They look better washed than they did in the ground.
While outside I had a wee visitor. ( a New Zealand fantail )
It came right up to my shoe and didn't seem to be able to fly more than a few feet. Is it a baby?...very small...or is something wrong with it?....I'm not sure. I hope it survives.
Now another question. I had an email from Amy who is the CEO of Globalchange.me asking me to make blocks for a quilt ( 12 by 12 inch or 9.5 by 9.5 inch ) to raise money for their cause. Have a look at their website and also Suture for a Living who is supporting this.
Did any of you get the same request? Is it a legitimate cause? Still considering if I will do this.
