Today is a Very Hot Day, and it’s also a little scary as we head full throttle into big scary bushfire season. Every year at this time it’s a little like Russian Roulette – which part of the country will be on fire? It’s not a case of maybe, it’s a definite danger and thankfully, we are not at risk this time. But Big Scary Fires are burning throughout the Adelaide Hills, and I’m crossing my fingers hoping that the damage will be less than expected.
I haven’t any fancy photos to show you today of my sewing as I’ve yet to put a stitch into something. I’ve sorted out the sewing room now, I’ve emptied the various bins that were overflowing, cleaned out the last of the Christmas rubbish and recycling, and I expect I shall sew some more of the Grand Illusion mystery later this afternoon. Have you been sewing along? Do you like the finished quilt? I must admit, it’s not my favourite. But perhaps my quilt will look fabulous when it’s finished, it’s in too many parts right now to make an informed decision.
I was surfing the other day and found the most gorgeous freebie that you may have seen already, but I’ll share it again. I see more than one of these little cuties in my future.
I don’t know that I will necessarily make them as pin cushions, but I shall definitely have some of the little cardinals below for my Christmas tree next year!
Think of me, won’t you? Sweltering in the heat.
Have a lovely day
