Another week of stitch

Barry asked if I was going to make a book of this, at the moment it is a scroll and I think it will stay like that. I have shown what it looks like rolled, my year ends in August. I may leave it for a while and start at the beginning of the New Year, but it is rather habit forming quietly stitching my day. So what did I do? On Monday we walked, we walked most days, although there has just been a murder in the town, not something that happens often and one body was found where we go down to walk on the beach, a little off putting.Tuesday it was really quite warm, 36 degrees and we went in for our flu shots. Wednesday was a trip to Adelaide for hair cuts and Thursday not a lot got done as I was tired after walking for an hour, John thought it was an octopus but really it was just a bit of mindless stitching. Friday was a shopping and walking day, lots of leaves blowing in the wind. Saturday we went wandering to look at some art galleries which was lovely and on Sunday we walked over at Pt Elliott, it was sunny and lovely and another bit of mindless stitch to make up the room! Today is one of those hot breathy sort of days, we are supposed to have some rain, lots of rain in the next few days, I have washed and brought it all in and am trying to get through a mountain of ironing, the brown tree frogs are croaking so I think we might have some rain. I hope so as it is terribly dry out in the garden and the paddocks.

Penny, I think it is wonderful that you stitch a diary of your life, and imagine what an heirloom that will be someday. We are just welcoming spring here, - two dandelions in the back garden and the neighbour's apricot tree blossoming today...lots of daffodils and tulips to brighten up the days.

Perhaps one day it will make a story quilt.....full of absorbing interest.

Hi P - the idea of a scroll is good - a book that has no pages - flows and unfolds as does life - I wonder how big such a scull can grow? Go well. B
