For the past few weeks I have felt pulled in all directions, trying to do too much and achieving nothing.
Hence the blogging silence, no time…
So, when Gorgeous Man suggested a weekend camping I jumped at the chance to get away from it all. We had a relaxing weekend away and I’m back revived and with a little more energy. I also used the car trip to test what things Gorgeous Girl would ask for on a long journey (cars, her two blankets, dolly and kookaburra and her weird ball thing). I think we’ll be OK on the plane as long as we have them.
I’ll have camping pictures once I take them off my camera.
In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure here is the latest yarn off the wheel.
We used this fibre to soak up the excess dye when we were dyeing, so it was a happy surprise that it came up with such beautiful colours. There are two skeins of three-ply (my first proper 3-ply) a mini skein of two ply and then I used the left over from one bobbin to Navajo-ply. I’m pleased with how they have all turned out.
I’ve worked out why I have done no quilting for weeks. The sewing room needs tidying so that I can actually sew without the need to set everything up, and I’m blocked because my quilt in progress needs unpicking, and maths since there was an error in the pattern. I’ve made plans to visit my friend F on Sunday, we are going to make our blocks for the Free Radicals’ block exchange and work on my quilt. Hopefully that will be enough to get me unblocked and bring back my quilting mojo.
