Patch envy

Isn’t this the most adorable picture? I totally didn’t ‘set’ this shot up. Whilst I was in the middle of packing for my crafty weekend away, I returned to my pile of clothes to find Purl had placed a mouse on my ‘packing’ pile. I don’t know if it was to signify, ‘I’m coming too’, or ‘you’re going to need this whilst you’re away’. Poor Purl, understands the meaning of a suitcase.

On my weekend away in Hepburn Springs, I went away with a whole lot of Quilters. Some of these crafters weren’t always ‘quilters’ though, it seems they’ve been converting one by one, with each subsequent visit to our weekend home. Somehow, I didn’t get the memo.

I was blown away by their projects, several of them brought multiple quilts in various stages of completion. Three of my friends are now also working on Hexagon quilts. These quilts are stitched together by hand, stitch by stitch, patch by patch. I so wish I brought mine…

I had to pull mine out as soon as I got home. I’ve set myself a new goal (for my quilt project of 19 years) my quilt top needs to be finished by the next time we get away. That’s 6 months. I had forgotten that Katie and I had a little  wager (?) or was it just a little ‘hexagon-along’ with her Bee Keepers quilt.

Meanwhile, I’ve started a new little project, with patches. Only 32 to go.
