SKOW – Making Progress – Don’t You Just Love a Wet Sunday

This weekend was much quieter for us.  Mick had to work on Saturday, so I just stayed home and pottered.  I’d planned to spend the afternoon making sashings for the SKOW quilt, but it didn’t happen.  I did, however, make a yummy baked lemon cheesecake from this recipe, cooked perfect poached eggs using Lucy’s tutorial (yes, I am probably the only person that didn’t know of the magic of vinegar) and had my first foray into jewellery making, but more on that another day.

Sunday was to be spent with my Dad at the Sofala Show, which is a great little country show, while Mick was still at work.  However, it started to rain, so that idea was cancelled.  Therefore, I had a lovely wet day to spend sewing and having friends around to help eat the yummy cheesecake.  Mick even had to knock off early due to the weather, so he could also enjoy a lazy wet Sunday.  It was so nice to actually stay home for the entire weekend.

So, what did I achieve….

I made all the sashings, except for the top row, which needs a stitchery to be completed.  December is completed.

Like everyone else, I have found it hard to get a photo once it was all sewn together.

My plan was to be up to date by the end of February – I still have 2 days to go, but it is not looking very promising.  Then again, if I really make an effort….we’ll see.
