Cyclone Ului made landfall about 200km south of here in the middle of the night last night. I went to bed well after 1am because I had to be sure that it had crossed the coast before I could sleep. We experienced little more than a strong breeze here, but are thinking about those who were in the path of the storm.
The other thing that has been keeping me up at night – in a good way – is a new quilt design.
Last week I received some beautiful Verna fabrics designed by Kate Spain.
I just love these, but they have to be made into a quilt and returned to Quilters Companion Magazine for publication in less than a month.
I spent all week looking at them. Organising them into colours, re-organising them into other groups then grouping them again.
Finally I came up with a design which pleases me, found my trusty coloured pencils and wrote up my cutting instructions.
Now it’s time to get sewing. Although… I might just need to take a quick kip first.
