Australia is experiencing a heatwave, I went swimming with my two grandsons this morning however by lunch time it was too hot to stay outside and risk them burning. Therefore after a lovely swim they went back home with mum to an air-conditioned house to spend the rest of the day indoors. It is 37.8c at the moment 1.53pm thank goodness for air-conditioners.
Although I haven’t managed any sewing to show today I was excited to receive in the mail 25 skeins of Cottage Garden Threads for my Scandinavian Rose Quilt. Considering that the dye lots can vary sometimes I was lucky enough to be able to acquire this batch and I hope to spread them out over the blocks. The instructions on the back of the pattern tells me I need 5 to 6 skeins of my favourite embroidery floss for each b.o.m pattern, but as you know I am using the Perle 8 unfortunately in my excitement of beginning the blocks I didn’t keep tabs on how much I was using. So I will make one block and see how much it takes then I will know how many I need to spread out among the blocks to bring together the dye lots.
