There are times when Gorgeous Girl is truly a dainty little girl.
While we were camping we went into a nearby town (Swellendam) for lunch.
Our meal was disappointing to say the least. It was as if they had run out of mince to make the beef-burgers and so put a teaspoon of mince with a hunk of ground up fresh bread and fried it (given that our meal took an hour to arrive I’m actually certain that this is what happened…)
Gorgeous Girl did enjoy looking at all the cars driving past though. She’s a little car obsessed at the moment.
So, do you want to see what Gorgeous Girl looked like just hours later?
Hmm perhaps not such a girly girl, but certainly an independent one.
My sewing mojo is slowly creeping back.
I visited my lovely friend F last week. Gorgeous Man kindly watched the Gorgeous Girl so that we could sew uninterupted. We made three blocks for the Free Radicals Block exchange.
The blue one from last month for J (I only managed one block last month, so ‘owed’ one).
Then we made the two for this month.
I can’t decide whether this flying geese block is groovily retro (I used vintage fabrics) or completely hideous. But it’s done and will be going to the recipient on Monday.
I’m trying very hard this year to knit and sew my fabric and yarn stashes. I have run out of storage space in my tubs and figure that’s a good sign not to buy any more stuff until I have some room.
This makes the monthly blocks interesting as I have to find fabric in the stash to fit in with the colours each lady has chosen.
F is a master quilter and she also helped me find the problem with my quilting work in progress and a solution.
I don’t have to work this Sunday (I work every second Sunday) so I may just get into that sewing room. I can feel the mojo calling.
