It is hard to concentrate on things when I spend most news bulletins in tears due to the bushfire tragedy which is still underway.
Today I went through my quilt collection and managed to fill a box which I will be sending off as my little bit for help. I would much rather they were being used by people in need than just sitting in a cupboard.
Don't forget that cash donations are still the most useful at this stage and the Red Cross is taking donations online so please do your bit even if you aren't in Australia.
I have been trying to work on the next Module of my C&G which is on texture. I was enjoying finding surfaces around the house to do rubbings - these are my bathroom tiles done with oil pastel crayons and then moved and done again with the second colour.
Also had to do Prairie Points in a couple of exercises. These ones were done with organza on hand dyes. Folding the organza was a bit tricky.
But the one that has me completely beat is the folded twisted square. I sat with the instructions for over an hour and still couldn't get it right. And I used to be so good with origami! Any suggestions would be gratefully received for how to do them easily. These are the ones with pleats which leave a lump in the middle which magically turns into a square.
