A Sorting Pastime


This morning was very wet, and grey.
With all the rain we've been having lately, the river has flooded over it's banks.
In the next picture you can see the river, it's not usually visible from this point.


So it was a good day to stay inside, warm and dry.  A good day to sort through my fabrics. I've joined Clare's rose star block party. I needed to check whether I had some suitable fabric. I didn't want to have to buy any, and my main stash is still in Sweden.


I had more than I thought I had. I enjoyed sorting through my fabrics. Funnily enough when I took the photos of the fabric this afternoon, the sun was shining.
I've also signed up for Anne's swop. So I need to have a think about what to do for that. I did something similiar sometime ago making ATC's. Whilst checking the ATC's I found a post I did about postcards that I'd forgotten about. I never did frame them.


We've just taken the hounds out for their last walk. We couldn't get along the river because the river is too high. We noticed cars on the road on the opposite bank slowing down and one turning round. That must mean the river has flooded the road on the far side. I think the river will be even higher tomorrow. Mike thinks it will have gone down a bit. It's been very windy today as well.

Sometimes it's nice to have a day to just curl up inside and enjoy not being outside!

Your fabrics are lovely, Lynne. I hope you get some drier weather soon so you can get out more with the hounds again. Looks like a good day for a cup of tea to me! :-)

Very pretty fabric, Lynne. We have sun today but cold temps. Give the hounds a hug from me.

Pretty much the same here - V Windy, rivers too high and too much in the fabric stash! Happy New Year Lynne. xxxxx

We've had a few real cold grey days, but today was nice. I love the fabric photos.

It's like that here, atrocious weather and the river in flood. We have a tiny, centuries old, sandstone bridge to cross it by, so far it's stood up to everything nature throws at it. When the river is as high as it is now you can stand on the bridge and feel as if you're on a boat, with nothing to see but water rushing by. Only problem is that means all the fields in 'the bottom' are underwater too and there's nowhere to run the dogs. Definitely the weather for crafting indoors, in my case with a whippet or two as hot water bottles! Hope the river goes down and the sun comes out soon, there and here!

What a beautiful set of fabrics, what vibrant colors and patterns, so refreshing to see when nature is grey and barren.;))
