I'm really really lucky that I have a daughter that loves craft. Both of us love Liberty fabric.
So much so that I will only iron shirts made with Liberty fabric. (Yep Rodd N Gunn sell men's Liberty shirts) I tell you if you are like me and dislike ironing buy the men folk their shirts made out of Liberty and it will transform your life.
Any way, Abbey and I have been tossing up at making a Liberty quilt. The above videos are awesome at explaining the measurements of the templates for Grandmother's Garden Hexagons, apple cores and tumblers. I'm being very boring and good at NOT starting something new (except for knitting a new hat for myself) but Abbey is going to start collecting Liberty fabric and make a Grandmothers' Garden quilt in Liberty fabric. Oh did I share I am a drop out at smocking... but you try and smock with a puppy.... fail.
We are so blessed having so many people happy to bring back items when they travel overseas that we cannot get in New Zealand. In the above video's you will see the turntable cutting mat that is such a NEED, plus the lady sells all the templates and cut outs for any paper piecing you could dream of.
Ava & Me sell bundles of Liberty Lawn so some of these will be heading back to New Zealand in a friend's suitcase for Abbey.
Then I take Louie for his daily walk around the paddocks. We are working on lead training.
Isn't he sooo cute carrying his lead?
He can come, drop and walk on the lead without pulling and he is only 12 weeks old. And he is fully toilet trained (he is soo clever)!
If you are on Instagram have a look at The Dobie Team. The lady speaks Spanish to her four dobermans and they are soo well trained. (I personally prefer dobermans not to have their ears and tails cropped, thankfully it is going to be against the law in New Zealand for cropping all dogs tails soon (including poodles tails).
I don't think cropping their ears has ever been legal in NZ??? Not sure on that.)
In Between that I am doing my daily chores of dishes, washing and study when Louie sleeps.
(It is like having a baby/toddler again)
I must share what I am researching for my naturopathy course, it is blowing my mind!
Tomorrow if I get time ok.
