January 31....now that is scary! The only good thing about is that it is getting closer to autumn when the weather may be a bit more pleasant. Whilst we are always told not to wish our lives away, it seems time is just doing what it wants regardless.
There are some exciting sewing events coming along in the next couple of months, Kaffe and Brandon at MO, a weekend with friends in the Hunter Valley and then an inspirational weekend finally meeting some Melbourne blogging friends with a dose of MSG! Fun!
So, in preparation,I am trying to finish some golden oldies so that I will be able to work on the workshop projects with a relatively clear conscience. Do I hear laughter? I did say relatively!
This kit was purchased at The Old Country Store in that Amish tourist Mecca, Intercourse, PA. It is for a Roman Stripes quilt in Amish plains. It brings back memories of heading out with Loz in a taxi to see some quilt shops dotted around the countryside, all the time Hurricane Sandy bearing down on us and the purchase of our amazingly awful lilac rain jackets! What a hoot!
Interestingly the first patchwork top I ever made was in this pattern, and it has never been quilted as OMG, I picked some really odd fabrics! So this might be my opportunity to redeem myself and have a completed Roman Stripes quilt in my little collection. I am loving the gradation of colours.
And for something completely different...a new mini ironing board is happening!
I hope my Aussie farming friends have rain soon, and those in the northern hemisphere get some reprieve from their chilly weather.
