the day after

Many thanks for all the wonderful comments - as I said I only started it for one reason. Thank you all for visiting me and reading my words of whatever. And even coping with my rugby obsession and my occasional rant about important things like daylight saving. I do believe I have solved the yappy dog problem as well.

I see there are 39 comments as I write so one more will mean 4 goodie bags to give away. Ian will do a draw for me on Thursday morning (why Thursday you ask - all will be revealed) so plenty of time to leave a comment and come out of lurkdom. Eve - we were thinking of going to Fremantle but remembered we hadn't been to the Swan Valley for a long time.

And no - we didn't eat a single chocolate egg or other over Easter. I don't think we have eaten an Easter egg for quite a number of years. The only chocs we usually scoff are chocolate fish and buzz bars and Ian likes dark choc.

We have been flat out today and the pile of orders hasn't moved that much so lots of work tomorrow and I have a number of tasks I have to finish like the last holey moley for this month and yes I know it is past the 5th... And that art to wear is looming. I shall try to stitch another 100 flower stitcher flowers tomorrow...



I got a parcel of fabrics from kiwiquilts today - please don't ask what I am going to do with them but they appealed to me and I couldn't resist them. I shall use them in my stonehaven-okarito work but you may not recognise them as they are now once I am finished.

Lovely fabrics from Kiwiquilts Dale. Unusual to see fabrics like this on your blog, it will be interesting to see the outcome. Bet that flower stitcher is smoking.

Are you sure you only have one pair of hands Dale - you seem to do twice as much as the rest of us! Those NZ fabrics are stunning and so unusual. Looking forward to seeing how you use them.

I love the kiwiquilts fabric too - I may have to investigate!

Hi Dale,
Love reading your blog. I'm off to play with my flower stitcher also. I enjoyed reading through your book.
Thanks for sharing your creativity.

Hi Dale. You are so very prolific and interesting; I know I check in every day to see what you are cooking up. Love the black and white strong graphic elements of these fabrics--love them. Thanks for writing.
