It has been since November 2016....almost 2 years and I wonder what I have been up to. Today I found this in my cupboard. An old friend that I think I started....hmmm....15 years ago. I started the quilting and for some reason decided it was not good enough, and I would have to unpick. Today with a more experienced eye, I think it is ok, or at least fixable. Will work on this as I renew my friendship with you all. This is an opportunity I think.
What else have I been up to? Well it is the beginning of Spring in Australia, and in my part of the country, we have had plenty of rain, so the garden looks pretty good. It is a bit later than usual, but maybe it will pick up.
In the sewing world I have been busy. No more Block of the Months for quite some time, but I am thinking of something, I just have to get my Mojo working again.
I fell into a bit of a deep hole last year when my DH John, took sick while we were travelling in Burma. Beautiful country, but horrible place to get sick. It was a long way home, and he ended up with heart surgery at the end of November.
While he was convalescing I had a lot of time on my hands, and managed to make a quilt that really inspired me. It is from the pattern by Susan Smith called Stevie's Garden. I called mine Midnight in the Garden for obvious reasons.
Martina Behm. The yarn is silk and baby camel, and divine to knit.
I have run out of oomph today, so will find a few more things later in the week.
Thanks for stopping by,
