Getting Started

I'm on holidays, so a sewing machine is not readily available. But, i've still made a start on the SAL. This is it:

Ready to be stitched onto the shoe bag.

"Red Home" has been ordered and my DIL tells me that its waiting for me at home. So hopefully I can join the thread catcher addiction very soon.

Ive also been stitching some more Gardener's Journal. I didnt join this SAL, but was so impressed by all the beautiful quilts that I just had to start. I've done lots this holidays to many other blocks. I'm picking one coloured thread and working on that on all the blocks I have traced. Nearly there on quite a few. All my sashing fabric has been selected. More progress tomorrow.

The heat wave seems to have eased a little. Quite pleasant nights and warm days. But we do need rain! None of the storms predicted came to anything in our part of the world.
