"Nana, can I take two shells?"
"No, Raf, just the one."
"Can I take three shells?"
"No Raf...just the one."
"Oh...." she sighs, and spends the next ten minutes choosing just the right 'one shell'.
So collecting from the beach that very early Sunday morning, my intention was to give all the new shells to the girls to keep at their own house. Needless to say, they were thrilled!
Today it's raining off and on and the garden is being watered from heaven (thank you Lord!), so I had a little extra free time to myself. I decided to choose some prints from my recently reduced sewing room supplies (very reduced) and begin Sherri McConnell's 2022 free block of the month.
I think I'll be making the 6" blocks (she offers 6" and 12" in her pattern) and using small scraps of fabric.
I've chosen these ones for block 1, though that may change...
I really should check if I have enough of those colours in more prints before I prime my rotary cutter. And of course, where will this project end up? I do not know yet, so perhaps that's another consideration when it comes to colour choice. I really need a long narrow runner for the top of the extra kitchen shelving I showed you HERE. Perhaps I'll make one with a lot of these first blocks, end to end, and another single block for the actual BOM.
What are you making at the moment?
It's Australia Day tomorrow and hubby has the day off work. He'll probably catch up on more of the garden chores, and I must sew new curtains for the cubby house - I have promised Cully May and Rafaella that they will be up when they visit here on Thursday.
I have Chicken Cacciatore ready to go in the Instant Pot (oh how I love that machine!) tonight, and ingredients for another Korean inspired Nourish Bowl (the sauce was incredible) like the one I made on Sunday, that we can have for lunch tomorrow.
Hope you have a wonderful day or evening wherever you are, and that you remember to keep your beautiful eyes focused on Jesus, no matter how fierce or unpredictable the storm may be.
