More Sewing than Cycling.

Its been a funny old week. Monday was a bank holiday but the weather was very inclement. I saw that it was lovely in other parts of the country so we only rode 11 miles. That was it for the week .

I had lots of work and didn’t have the time to get out now that we have dark mornings and the nights are drawing in.

Then on Thursday, my quilt group was able to meet for the first time in 18 months. It was such a joy to see the other ladies and see the work they have produced. I was particularly thrilled that one lady allowed me to photograph a small piece that she had stitched and it was all due to a short workshop I had conducted about 2 1/2 years ago.


I made a small piece to use up some tiny scraps and also to try out some stitching with size 12 thread which I haven’t tried previously but it did have in my thread stash as I bought it on sale at a very reasonable price a few years ago.

Next Saturday, we will drive up to Oban with our bikes on the back of the car so cycle the Hebridean Way so I may not be blogging for a few weeks.
