Hi Guys, just popping in to sign off for a bit. I have school camp for the rest of this week. We are off to the Grampians - lovely place - cold as cold this time of year though, so I fully expect to be sleeping in my beanie and scarf as I have done on previous trips. Its very fetching actually.
Of course late yesterday afternoon it dawned on me, that with the weather forecast to rain for the whole week, there might be a little less abseiling , canoeing and general outdoory-ness than I imagined and a bit more - sitting in the dining room playing board (bored?) games....
So some camp-friendly hand sewing was called for......
With inspiration from Andi, who in turn got her inspiration from Alissa I rustled up this quilt top.
Thanks so much girls....
I realise it would have been better balanced with another row at the bottom but I am out of time on this one.
Brisbane Stitches and Craft show is about to get underway and even though I won't be there - my Kinder Boy and Girl patterns will be there, in the incubator with Sandra of Winterwood.
Of course the selvedge frock will be there, showing off and hopefully looking gorgeous.
I'll be thinking of all the crafty girls having a great time at the Stitches and Craft show without me. But I have my hand sewing taken care of so I can look forward to a few freezing cold wet days, lolling by the fire calmly stitching away...... Just me, a few teachers oh !
and about seventy very excited 11 year olds.
