It is time for an update, isn't it ?
The seamen are falling in line beautifully - no more mutiny!
5 more down and 5 to go.
I still have not appliquéd more than a few - 5 or 6 - and all lacks the middle piece, but now I have decided to be done with the piecing before doing the appliqué.
Good choice, if you ask me :-)
I am still being careful with my left shoulder, so hand work suits me very well.
Today we have had a sunny day, and in addition to sitting outdoors for a few hours, with my sewing off course,
I have also gone for a walk, swinging my arm as I walk.
My lavender plant is still looking good in the late afternoon autumn sun.
I guess it is to late to take it in to dry - or maybe not ?
I have never done that before, and I think the plant is so beautiful on my veranda.
I am working on no less than 2 gift quilts though.
It is going to be 2 Disappearing 9-Patch quilts, one for a dear relative, and one for her best friend, both celebrating their birthdays together in 3 weeks time.
I try to be a bit frugal - not cheap - and use what I have at hand in stead of rushing off using a lot of money.
Not that quilts are inexpensive in any way, but I do have all I need to make these 2 quilts, except for border fabrics.
I am doing just a little at a time, so I guess this project will keep me occupied for a while. The sore shoulder is not applauding to much cutting or feeding the sewing machine to intensively.
All the 9-patches are done now, and are ready to be cut to new blocks.
I think autumn is setting in in my mind too - making food from fresh produce - like meat and vegetable stew, known as lapskaus in Norwegian, and baking bread.
