I've had visitors.
The visitors brought gifts of fresh but muddy vegetables.
The muddy vegs needed cleaning.
The mud clogged up the kitchen sink.
The sink needed de-clogging.
The de-clogging produced a heap of dirty towels.
The dirty towels needed washing.
The washing needed drying.
The drying was impossible in the rainy thunderstorm.
The thunderstorm kept me indoors cooking vegetables.
The vegetables needed packing, freezing, pickling and deep frying.
The deepfrying needed the chip pan.
The chip pan's oil needed filtering and the pan needed cleaning...
Feeble excuses, but there you have them. I am just wondering why housework causes a chain reaction and you end up with even more housework.
If I need further excuses, I went to visit my friend Julie, I cut a lot of new triangles and I made a stumpwork portrait for World Embroidery Day.
Only 60 new triangles, total count is 3.192.
Åsa and Julie, if you are reading this post, you can see that some of your green pieces have found a new home.
Fabric in Focus
I was given a set of fabric, all of the same pattern, but in different colours, green, turquoise, red, grey... I used two for this quilt and they are sometimes among the dark pieces and sometimes among the light ones. Chamaeleon fabric!
'I'm LIGHT green!'
'So am I!'
'I'm DARK green!'
'So am I!'
'Hm, that is a matter of who your friends are!'
Can you make out what it is?
