It’s been a bit of a strange week. It’s passed even faster than normal and I don’t know why! We’ve pottered in the garden when we can but there is a really horrible east wind and it’s not nice staying out there too long. Frosts have returned too so lots of covering up and bringing in in the evenings.
I finally had the urge to dig out some ‘dead’ fabrics and piece them for the Ugly Quilt. It’s now finished, ten years on, and hanging on the line sideways.
The weird back, which actually I’m quite fond of as it’s used up some non usable fabrics.
I quilted on the Juki in the end in giant Vermicelli rather than try and unearth the long arm, it’s buried that deep. That huge throat space was fabulous but hauling the quilt around didn’t help my torn rotator cuff at all. I will definitely have to long arm any others.
I think this will become a very much loved quilt as I have no hang ups about it being dragged around the garden or having things spilled on it by the Grands or the dogs! It’s going to be used, as they all should be.
The table, which I forgot to show last time, has a new green.
Fingers crossed this wind shifts as forecast to at the weekend!
