… for a quick update 🙂 I have been busy.. not sure what with, but the days seem to be flying by. We’ve been doing a little bit of shopping for things we need that aren’t coming in the container – some bookshelves (can never have enough of those), chairs, kitchen stuff… etc.
We’ve also still been catching up with friends, which has been lovely.
I have also been playing with my new baby, Baby B:
Last week I spent all day Tuesday sewing with friends, and managed to get this quilt top done:
If you recall, I bought Kaffe Fassett fat 1/8ths from Emma’s to try to make a quick quilt for the art lady in Skipton. Well, I didn’t finish it in time, so I decided to be a bit more creative and came up with the above design. I quite like how it turned out, don’t you?
Now I need to wait for the container to get here so I can get some backing fabric…. and guess what????? Last night we found out that our stuff has arrived in the Kingdom and is going through customs now… and will be here on Wednesday morning!!! So excited! We weren’t expecting it until mid March, so this is a real bonus.
I’ve been fiddling with some yarn as well… in the last few days before I left Oz, I made two water bottle covers for friends and gave my own one away. So I needed to make another, which I did from a variegated yarn. It looks a little like a bargello pattern:
So I’ve been dragging my water bottle everywhere I go, even though it is not too hot here yet.
I also have another finish…. a camera case:
Oh, and I made two little Pink Penguin baskets, but no photos of them yet… so really, I have had a very good month of finishes in spite of moving countries.. or maybe because of?!
UPDATE – ok, it is the next day and I am GIVING UP! I can’t get any more photos to load 🙁 Don’t know if it is the internet connection or blogger, so I am just going to quickly post this and then try again later (I’ve been trying for a day now!)… you just need to imagine the photos there for now, lol!
