Our trip home, as lovely as it was, made us all sick and we are only now starting to feel human again. I had a chest infection, Gorgeous Girl woke up with infected ears at 3 am the day we flew home (good thing was she slept for most of the flight home…) and Gorgeous Man got the flu. We are now fully acquainted with the private medical clinic here in Port Moresby and are feeling much better.
Today I received word that my quilt had arrived at it’s destination, so I can show you a picture.
I’m really pleased with how this turned out. It did have it’s challenges at times, but it’s amazing what a run through the washing machine can do to finish a quilt off. This was 100% from stash, including the backing and included fabric from every quilt I’ve made.
I’ve got the binding cut to add to my second quilt of the year. I’m looking forward to having that finished.
There has also been some knitting. A little cardigan for charity.
One of the sleeves is a 1/4 inch longer than the other. I’m trying to decide if I should cut the sleeve, knit two more rows and graft it together, or if I should follow Gorgeous Man’s advice to just stretch the other sleeve. Do you think anyone other than me will notice? I also suspect that the neckline on this is very wide, but I don’t have a real baby to test it on…
My first PNG spin.
This was a gorgeous fibre from Nurturing Fibres in South Africa.
Finally a picture of Gorgeous Girl enjoying a curry on our last night in Australia.
