I have nothing to report on the stash numbers for this week; 2.5m in, and 2.5m out, so nothing much has changed. I've used 102.6 metres this year and bought 21 metres for a net usage of 81.6 metres.
I finished the Milky Way top, and it turned out exactly as I wanted it to, which was a relief.
Imagine having kept the fabric all these years, and dreamed of making it, only to have it turn out ho-hum. But it didn't, and I can hardly wait to quilt this and start using it. It's been a very satisfying project from start to finish. The fabrics all came from stash, none at all were purchased for this, although I did 'borrow' half a metre from Mereth to finish off the four-patches.
It's Autumn, and I'm loving the cooler weather. So is Dolly, she's been racing around like a mad thing, full of energy and determined to make up for the months of inactivity over the hot summer. I think her convalesence is officially over!
It rained last night, and it's raining again now, which is wonderful. We took a little drive tonight, to see the heavy clouds and just enjoy the scenery.
This is my favourite time of year, and I'm happy as a clam right now. Look at the colour of those clouds!
Of course the rain means there are puddles, and Dolly found one on our evening walk.
I hear it's very soothing on the feet....
