It's raining again...
I sat out on the back deck and pondered what to on another rainy weekend...
...and decided blue may be the order of the day.
You see, last night I spent a few hours playing with my Rachel Ashwell "Chambray Rose" fabrics...all blues...another $4/metre bargain buy earlier this year...
...the plan being to make twelve different 12" blocks for a quilt 'cause I've been badly bitten by the patchwork bug this month.
I scoured through patchwork books, magazines, pinterest pages, google - all to find twelve different blocks I could play with, and more importantly, that had a 4" square in the middle so I could fussy cut some floral sprays. Yeh, I know, fussy cutting is another obsession this month...
By bedtime I had two blocks finished, and two ankles covered in mosquito bites (downside of life in the tropics)...
There's no rush on this quilt, but as it's raining I might just get a few more blocks done today and tomorrow.
Shame Mr E and I cannot go adventuring, though. Still, muddy mountain tracks can be fun. We'll see what he thinks.
Here's a little happy news!
Our young Blossom had a rather nasty car accident two weeks ago when she had a speeding car ram into the back of her at the traffic lights. Her little pink Micra was written off and she suffered a severe whiplash, swelling and bruising along her spine, chest compression from the seat belt, and shock - but she is alive and ok, praise God.
On Thursday Mr E and her went car shopping and found a sweet silver Lancer to be 'just right' for her transport needs. It was lovely to see her smiling and healthy again!
I decided not to share the news of her accident at the time as we all kind of huddled together and just wanted to be private, but thankfully all is well, and as the other driver was insured she has wheels again.
She handled the whole ordeal with great maturity and we're incredibly proud of our girl.
Parenting is a real mix of joy and drama isn't it?
