We have been having a cold snap here over the weekend yikes.... we had snow in our yard! For some of you I know that is not unusual but here in Hobart it is the middle of summer and it is very rare for us to get snow (maybe once every 2-3 years) in the middle of winter.....
The girls also lost Television priveledges over the weekend (for reasons we shall not disclose) and its amazing what is achieved without a TV on and the weather too ugly to venture outside much.
Miss M practised her recent scrapbooking class by making a birthday treat for her Grandma's 70th tomorrow. She chose antique colours - not because of the age but because of Grandma's taste and decor... Using just what we have here she did a great job I think and Grandma will love it I am certain. I have spent several hours on the Black and white quilt. Why did I decide to go so big?? It took me about a week to transfer the design. I think I have probably quilted about 1 /20th of it so far... And I am not sure if it will be good enough - I may have to colour the whole quilt to hide my quilting imperfections. From a distance though I am very happy how it looks, the bridal satin gives a real trapunto look to the quilt.
So I am thankful for a few days of chilly temperatures so I can stitch to my hearts delight. I will certainly notice the difference next week however when I go here, here, here and here.... then I am sure I will be posting on the 'warm weather'. Can't wait. Karen has a few spots left so give her a call if you are near. We are doing the Blessed beauty wallhanging.
