I'm slowly getting back into sewing mode, working for two hours on one small block, but happy to be taking so much care with the details. Sometimes I want to sew up a storm and get a pile of blocks done quickly, but slow and painstaking is what suits me now.
While I work slowly on this project I can ponder what to start next. When we were at the Central Markets in Adelaide we visited the secondhand book stall. Mereth insisted I buy this book, even though the weight of it gave me second thoughts.
I love being able to add wonderful books to my library. Once the hot weather gets here and we're trapped indoors in the airconditioning I can get out a stack of books, my notebooks and graph paper and spend the hours with my favourite antique quilts. With a pot of tea. And some fruitcake. Sounds good.
