I've been thinking about the Ant Halloween Costume I'm making for Wee MrSingapore. This is the ant I have to work with, it's from the Anthill iPad game. So far I've sewn a small cushion insert into the shape of the abdomen and made the red shapes.
I made two more blocks for my 2013 quilt. It is almost complete. I made two new blocks inspired by this quilt. It was a fabulous idea for using up all the ends of the fat quarters.
And here's the quilt where I just placed blocks in a kind of pattern. I have to make another of the circle blocks in aqua and back my quarter fan in the pale green variegated fabric. I am also going to make the present from the Fat Quarter Decade The Halls quilt.
I will have only five of the mainly aqua blocks, and that makes me happy, because it's one for each row. I am seriously thinking of making the lattices red. Red features quite prominently, and they will only be thin. Green and red are complementary colours after all.
Last week's winner for World Food on Recipe to Riches was Vegetable Samosas, 360g, 8 samosas for $5-99. They need to be heated in the oven for 15-20 minutes. They are nice and spicy, but a little dry. I would like a sauce with them. I'm not sure what, but they need something. Thus far, none of the products have cried out 'pick me, pick me, pick me'. Am I too spoiled and choosy???
You can see that Peri and Gilly are the biggest stickybeaks ever. The lady who walks two other dogs had left the door of her truck open. I wasn't sure if it should be shut or not, but The Labradors gave it a thorough sniffing.
I bought a day dress at Coles from their Mix Apparel. It was only $19 and I had no idea if it would fit me or not, but it did. It is nice and cool and swirly. The stripes are lime, but they don't show up very well in the fading light and dirty mirror. I've been fiddling with a FBA for my new dress. I am waiting for the Craftsy tutor to answer my question about the weirdly shaped armhole.
Yesterday was our Spring Equinox, but we've almost had a month of Spring. The weather has been very warm, 20*C, but we are expecting a cool change with rain. Of course we are, the white camellias are blooming.
