I did quick trip into Hobart yesterday to get a last few threads so I could finish stitching a couple of WIP blocks. Well the trip IN was quick....more about that later.
My first stop was Spotlight because I know I can get DMC threads there....besides, I was also looking for something in the homewares aisle. Out of the 7 colours I needed,....suprise, suprise...I could only find 5!
No probs, this time I remembered that there is a thread shop in town so off I went to find it. Not much help though as they had closed early!! The ones I had would have to do. The trip home was interesting. I had no idea how to get home from where I was so I called on my TomTom to help and it took me home on the windy trecherous route which was definitely not the quickest route. By the time I realised, I decided to just go with it......at least, the scenery was amazing around the base of Mt Wellington.
The two threads colours I didn't have were not necessary for finishing the blocks that I wanted to so today I sat down to finish them. And here they are:
First off, the daisies on block 1 of 'A Country Tea Party' ......so pretty
Then I pulled out my first two unfinished blocks from "Australian Afternoon". Here is Emu makes a Duck.
and lastly I finished off Possum Reading
I loved stitching the little yellow daisies.
They sort of remind me of the daffodils that I keep finding in the garden and which I keep picking for little pops of spring all over the house.
While I wait for my next BOM blocks to arrive in the mail, I am going to stitch
The Brolgas are Dancing.
I also managed to do some block piecing today....more on that later. Actually, I got a bit done today....from stitching and sewing to herding cows to photographing sights in the yard....those are currently appearing on Cath@Home
