A very tiring, enervating day!
We had SG here for 6 hours, & he was constantly on the go! He is really missing his 'school days' & also missing his favourite little friend from Pre School.
We spent some time downstairs, listening to some old music. SG was quite intrigued by the old records, & how the record player works.
While we were down in the rumpus room I was looking at my wallhangings, & an old quilt I made at the beginning of my obsession with quilts.
This is a pic of the 'Houses' wallhanging I did some years ago. I blanket stitched all the houses & flowers & really enjoyed the whole process of making this.
The pic doesnt seem to have turned out very bright or clear. Perhaps I should have put the lights on in the rumpus room.
This next pic is the very early quilt. My family gave me some Charm Square packs, & this gave me the idea to use them all in a quilt. So I set about designing - a new experience, & I tried several variations before I settled upon this idea, which I called Four Seasons.
I currently have it on the sofa bed downstairs. It is a good utility quilt, with a nice cotton batting, & is light but warm. I still love all the fabrics in it, & am always reminded of my 'children', when I see it.
We have not been lucky enough to get the rain that Sydney has had, but the humid heat is very tiring, & the light is strange & overcast. A bit glum, really.
Old music may have brought back too many memories. Phoebe Snow, whose voice I still love.
Connie Francis with some country style songs- dated but I have so many memories of people who loved her music too!
Now I am onto Bob Dylan, who is always good for melancholia!
Tomorrow we have SG again for some hours, so I must prepare with an early night!
