The Chair of Contemplation

 Here I am again, home from work.  There is a lot to do around the house but I am not so enthusiastic about that.  Instead I want to start a quilting project. It could be a baby quilt or a wall hanging, the latter from from one of my Kaffe Fasset Books, Quilts in Sweden. I have the fabric ready to sort and cut.  The baby quilt is for one of the new arrivals surrounding me at the moment.

My mind is also wandering back to Auchindrain at the weekend which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I demonstrated blending of different fibres to spin and there is a rather nice mix of white and candy colours I am looking forward to see spun

Now all this heavy duty thinking is taking place while I am seating in my favourite chair, The 
Seat in question.  I look out at the view and ponder. 

Now then what to do?

An hour a day, lovely

Well time is flying again!

I am going to try and keep up this time, honest :-)

My employers and I are trialing a slight alteration to my working hour, 8-4 instead of 9-5.  I know it's not much of a change but I feel I have more time for me and my fibres/fabrics.

I am itching to do some quilting but I need to prepare for wooly Connections in Auchendrain this coming Saturday and Sunday. I am helping out demonstrating spinning, carding/mixing etc,  2 good days with a lovely dinner at The George in Inveraray between.  I will post pictures, even if we get rained out, it will be good, I am sure.
