15 Minute and Winter May have Arrived

 It has finally turned cold.  Most days have been high teens to low 20's up until yesterday, so we are in a bit of shock today. It has been raining all night and most of the day and the wind is pretty cold, I guess it had to happen.  We have hardly had the heater for most of May but I think that will change now, I put it on as soon as I got home from work.  

I managed some quilting on the weekend, 6 blocks are finished 3 to go and borders and sashing.  Have a couple of week until have to enter the quilt so I will wait until I have the centre of the quilt done before I make my official entry though I will have until August to finish it.  Don't think I will enter the CAL It is probably another month until it is finished and I am thinking that I will probably make it bigger so it might not be ready in time.

I finished the 2nd Loose Feathers design on the weekend.  I think I will do no 4 next and i may move the order around.   No 5 is my least favourite so I'm think about putting it in No 9' s place.  I am waiting on some more threads, though I can probably safely use substitutes but I do like the subtle colour change of the weeks threads but they do become a bit costly.  



I'm on the hunt for the correct blue for dutch sampler.  I found the perfect thread in one of my thread boxes but the number had fallen off the thread holder.  I have tried to use the colour chart for cosmo thread  but I've managed to purchase the wrong colour each time, so as a last resort I have sent off some of the thread to a shop in Victoria to see if they can match it for me as a last resort I'll see if DMC has some (I much prefer using Cosmo).

That's it for me this week.  Hope you have managed 15 minute a day.  Head to Kate's to see how everyone is going.
