 Last night I finished the stitchery I was doing but now I am wondering how to frame it. I first thought I would just display it in a hoop as it is or add some fabric then frame it in a normal frame. I have no idea what I am doing now but here it is.

On Friday I visited my local patchwork shop for the first time in over a year and it was so nice to wander around  selecting some fabrics for a new project. I was the only customer there. I found some suitable fabrics and thought I would add more fabric from my stash. Big mistake! Looks like I am returning to the shop. 

Now that I have some new fabrics and threads I am ready to start Jenny's Block of the Month called "Simple Days" which is starting tomorrow.  I always have great enthusiasm when about to embark on a new project. 

Perhaps I can find some border fabric for my Pandemic quilt when I return to the patchwork shop. 

The weather is lovely here at the moment and we are expecting a few very hot days ahead. We are not venturing anywhere until the tourists and holiday makers go home after Australia Day.  It is bedlam out there and I am looking forward to things getting back to no tourists normal. 

Enjoy some stitching.
