|NORFOLK PINES ETCHED DELICATELY AGAINST THE EARLY MORNING SKY|
This morning we woke to a cloudy day. I was drinking my morning coffee and checking out the blogs which had been updated over night when it grew dark and cold. A heavy shower came through. The rain sounded like hail and the drops bounced off the deck.
|HOPING TO FINISH THIS BY SATURDAY|
I know our daughter-in-law favours blue so I looked through my miserable 'stash.' I had to buy the cream fabric for the sashing. It was a relief to find some suitable backing fabric and batting at the Glass House in Whitianga. This will be 100% hand stitched. I am so pleased my hands allow me to sew once more. I could not have done this three years ago when I was still eating wheat. My joints were becoming increasingly painful, and my hands were incredibly weak. I had become resigned to having arthritic hands. Our son and his wife are coming up for a week's holiday starting on Saturday. I hope she likes it and I will be looking forward to seeing how it looks on their sideboard.
