Patchwork Today

I love the start of a New Year and I especially love a diary or a little book with new clean pages to write thoughts and "things to do".

I have a little black diary for all the books I will read this year and the knitting , patchwork, weaving , spinning projects etc.

I think I will include the plants and bulbs I plant this year in its pages too.

I spent some time today sewing squares together and listening to the Debussy and Ravel String Quartets played by our NZ String Quartet. These two quartets are my favorite and well worth a listen if you click on the link.
Actually I am not sure if this link thingy is working, so you might have to google it instead.

The music helped to make the sewing flow together.

Sally it is gorgeous and so Kaffe like. Draped in the garden like that it is better than some of his illustrations. Thank you so much for the swap parcel, will ask clever son to photograph it with his teeny new sony digital camera and will do a blog on the kindness of crafty bloggers.
