Now here's a mathematical equation that everyone can understand - provided it's in context. It's called Conservation of Energy. It says that total amount of energy in a closed system remains constant. Here goes
more time spent blogging = less time spent sewing
See - easy! Of course it's not just how much time you spend writing your own blog, you have to catch up with your blog buddies that you have on the sidebar, then when you're visiting them you see some pictures on their sidebar and before you know it, hours have passed, you've visited every country on the planet, and the big fat G & T that you sat down with has long since been emptied (sometimes more than once). How much sewing have you done - haha - only in your mind. And now that's also filled with 75 new projects that you have to start and here's another application of conservation of energy (well almost)
more fabric = less money in the bank
exactly - visited too many fabric vendors and now your house is going to be like Privet drive when the owl post arrives (if you haven't read Harry Potter just ignore that last bit!)
After last weeks long post I decided I should try and post in more bite sized chunks. The mailperson has already been busy
This is my backing for DNQTTT. It is a little pinker than I expected it to be - I was hoping for a red but it's so hard to tell on the internet. It will do - it's on the back and it will be on the wall right!
This is the next in the Blackbird Loose feathers series. I do an autoship with Shakespeare's Peddler. Theresa is great if you're after cross stitch supplies. There are also a couple of the Blackbird stocking charts in there. The colours of these threads are just beautiful.
The reds are for the MM quilt. They are Jo Morton crimson and clover, the other is Morris workshop - really beautiful, which will be the background for a version of the Roebuck quilt that I will be making.
Now for my little bit of stitching. I finished this piece for the PA quilt.
And here are the next two blocks ready to go.
It's great having some pieces ready to go - it makes the whole putting together task so fast with so little effort.
That's it for now dear friends. Need to chop up the pink/red stuff so I can send it off to be quilted. How exciting - this is my first time sending out to a machine quilter. Can't wait to see what she does. Have fun blogging....and oh yes.....sewing!
