Skipping?

Even though I have been sewing quite a lot recently, there is only one small project of some interest to show you. I will skip the hand quilting I have been practising, and much more Kantha quilting I have been working on. Those technical practise samples just don't make for nice photographs...

Inspired by the many Christmas projects around, I decided to make a star (I do love stars!). And to increase the chances of the project being finished before the year is out, I made it into a small item. In the end my star is not specifically Christmassy, and the fabrics were already lying around. But... after a few evenings it is almost finished and ready to be given as a present. I like it so much, I may have to make a few more...


Since today is a quiet day for (paid) work, I decided it was time for a walk. Helpfully the sun came out, too. You can see how low it sits at this time of the year, showing off my silhouette nicely tall and slim!


The wide views just beyond the village have a soothing effect...

The local standing stones, today no cows to rub against them...

Back in the village this bare tree shows against the blue sky

The walk really lifted my spirit. I may even have skipped for a very short stretch, though only far outside the village. It made me feel happy and cheerful, though also very unfit, and a small bit silly...

I think I am ready to do some more sewing now.
