In My Dreams



In my dreams I would have completed 10 quilts by now, done the taxes made a new small bag to put my docs and wallet in and would be packed or half way so and dyed fabric for a shop I have to deliver to on Monday on the way to the airport.

The reality is that I will be lucky to get the six quilts done ( two need more hand stitching - but that's ok- gives me something to do at night in the hotel in Syria). The photo is of Gilgamesh's forest rug- I abandoned the piece with the foiled cedars- i wasn't sure about them, nor am I sure about this stitching, but I will keep going. I have to dye the fabric tomorrow- it is too hot today- i should have done it early this morning, but I didn't think it was going to be this hot......

Nothing is packed, though the list is done- and as long as I have a list things will happen.I did try and make chilli plum sauce but put too much vinegar in I think- I suppose I could add more plums to it to even it out- maybe tomorrow.

There is a lot of sewing planned for tomorrow- getting on the plane and not having to do anything will seem like a holiday.

Good luck, Dijanne! I hope you will travel safely to Syria and then to Europe! I wish your travel be a successful one, because you have worked so hard for this.
All my best

6 completed out of 10 is very good for the amount of time you had. Hope you get the fabric dyed in time. Good luck on your trip. I am looking forward to reports on your blog.
