Yesterday I was hot.
The thermometer on the balcony,
in the shade,
was reading 30 degrees centigrade.
Which is hot for me.
I decided to get my hexagon quilt out.
Truth be known,
it was already out,
just waiting for me to
leave the crocheting I have been doing,
and start stitching instead.
I've always thought that I tend to have
lots of projects on the go
so that :-
I don't get bored;
there is a project to suit my mood;
there's a project to suit the time (such as crochet in front of the TV);
or location (such as hand sewing to take on holiday).
I'm sure there are other reasons I could add.
I realised that I have all these projects
because I can get a different one out when:-
I can't find the thread I need for the first one,
(that's the thread I
found sorted out last week
and thought I had put in the tin with the hexagons).
Even if I did find the thread,
that I simply MUST use,
no other will do...
I can't find my sewing glasses.
When I get the next project out,
I can't decide on the layout for it.
And when I do decide on the layout,
I really do need to prewash the fabric.
In the process,
of all of this,
I come across some fabric left over from some other project,
(completed I might add),
shall I start a new project?
Do you have days like that?
In the end
I watched this bird for a while
helping himself to our plums
that aren't quite ready.
If you are interested,
you can see the right side of the quilt
from the first 4 photos here,
Just don't look at the date!
P.S. Can you tell I like hexagons?
