And here are the obligatory photos of cormorants all lined up sunning themselves.
Back on the road again, I swung by Blueberries. Its on the northern edge of the Central Coast and I don't get there terribly often as its generally too far for me to go, so I took the opportunity to pop in an see what they had. I love the fabrics Jackie keeps.
I stocked up on some neutrals and a wee bit of lovely red fabric.
And some applique needles. I like to use a very fine needle, and am always looking for fine, large eye needles. I haven't seen this brand before. Isn't the packaging gorgeous? Hope they live up to expectations.
I have been quilting the baby quilt the last couple of days. Some stitching in the ditch and a figure of eight design in the pink pieces in free motion quilting. I have marked the centres of the pink bits for the junction of the "eight" and just point and shoot. You can just make that out in the photo.
And in the odd bits of time I have, I've been making little drawstring bags for the Samaritans Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you might remember that I made a whole pile last year.
So far, there are 28 completed, and around 20 more half made. I don't mind making them. They are super simple to make, and I get to use fabric I am never likely use.
I have no idea how many I will make. I'll stop when I get bored. When they are done, I will drop them off at the school two of my grand daughters go to.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
