Well, it's been a L-O-O-O-O-N-G time since I've posted, but I'm back at last. Dunno, I've just been in a real funk lately. Finally beginning to see the light of day. Feels good to be back.
Haven't done a lot of quilting yet, but as you see to the left, I finally got the largest center section layered and pinned together. I stalled out when I realized I need to learn how to put on the walking foot attachment on the new machine. That, plus there's company arriving this week, meaning I had to clean up the quilting studio/guest room to allow a place for them to sleep.
So, quilting is on hold for a week. Still, it feels good to be nearing the end of this project. And I promise, no more pics of this quilt until its at the binding stage! You must all be as tired of it as I am!
Thought you'd enjoy this pic DH took this morning...weather is really changing here now, and autumn in Exeter looks like this...sometimes. Very changeable, so you might have three days worth of weather in just a couple of hours here. Already, the fog has burned off and we've got scattered clouds with a fair bit of sun.
And the next pic gives even more a a glimpse of the foggy patches at the bottom of our lower paddock. Pretty, huh?
And here's an interesting pic of the strange mushrooms growing in our upper paddock. Don't they look like the creature from the Blue Lagoon?
I started my first pair of socks in about 40 years this week. Using five eensy double-pointed needles. Yikes! Fun, but I feel like I'm all thumbs. It's a portable project, though, and with company coming I need something to work on that's manageable.
We're off to Sydney to pick up our guests today, climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge tomorrow (another big yikes!), back home with them for a couple of days, out to Canberra Friday/Saturday, and taking our friends to the airport for their flight to Hayman Island on Sunday. Wish we were going along on THAT little jaunt!
Anyhoo, sorry for the long silence. I hope to be a more faithful poster in coming weeks...
