And the rain came down.

Today it rained and rained and rained. Sometimes I really enjoy rain but today it was that  depressing type of rain, breaking down the few remaining flowers. leaving large puddles and turning the sky really dark. The rain also dropped the temperature and I put a jumper on for the first time in ages. Oddly the rain also set me brain whirring. I remembered that I'd bought an embroidery pattern for Noah's Ark and I had to search it out. This design is by Lynette Anderson. 


I love Lynette's designs. The centre of Mr Rabbit's Garden quilt was a Lynette Anderson design. The baby boy that this quilt was made for was born this morning.

I've still got to finish stitching the Pride and Prejudice blocks and the frog stitcheries but starting another project wouldn't hurt, would it? OK I'll finish the Pride and Prejudice blocks first. I need to sort out the background fabric and make sure I've got all the floss I need for the Noah's Ark so this will be another start for 2022.

This morning I had post. First my copy of Today's Quilter popped through the letter box. I spent a little time reading a couple of articles and I looked at the quilt patterns. One was a scrappy pattern and I want to make it at some point. I love scrappy quilts and like all quilters I have a lot of scraps. However much you try the scraps never get used up. I've put this scrappy quilt pattern on the agenda for next year as well.

I also received my monthly fabric box in the post. This month it contained a Christmas table runner pattern and the fabric to make it.

This is a project I will be starting this month, Maybe even this week.

Overall no sewing got done today but I did make a rye loaf , millionaires caramel shortbread and a whole wheat chocolate cake. The family has almost finished the cake already. I found doing some baking very soothing as our neighbours are having a party today to celebrate moving into their new home. They set up a large gazebo in the garden and since 2 pm there has been music blaring from the house and lots of loud laughter and squeals. I hope they don't make a habit of loud parties.

My plan is to do some quilting tomorrow and I'll decide on my goal for this month. 

Take care
