Yesterday, amid a blaze of firecrackers, we ushered in the Year of the Rabbit.
Amazing, when you think about it, we've had 3 new years in the last 3 months. The first was the Moslem new year in December (or was it November?), then the gregorian new year on the 1st of January, and yesterday, the Chinese lunar new year.
And the best bit about being in this part of the world is, we get to celebrate ALL of them (*huge smile*)!
We've got a 4 day weekend, I repeat FOUR days (jealous anyone?), which I'm in the midst of enjoying tremendously.
Although it's only been a couple of days, I've manage to get quite a little bit done in The Office (aka my sewing room).
Up first, my attempt at applique. I'd posted about this earlier, and now the quilt top is done.
I'm not over the moon with it, as I think there's a lot of room for improvement here.
Next up, another UFO. Honestly I had harboured serious doubts about whether I'd ever finish this one. But then a couple of nights ago I took it out and spent a couple of hours over it in earnest, and now, yippeee!! I have a quilt top:
I have no plans on quilting these just yet. I'm currently stash building, as my fabric shelves are running somewhat short.
So these quilt tops will just have to sit pretty until I find some suitable backing fabric for them.
More updates soon.
