Make A List Colour Monday

Joining this week with Porch Swing Quilts for Make A List Colour Monday.

Last week's list:
  • Finish Peppa Pig toy (half done).
  • Unpack four more boxes.
  • Do three hours of hand quilting on Miss Ballerina's quilt. (I did five hours - yay!)
  • Clean out and organise freezer.
  • Begin drawing/planning the new vegie/fruit tree garden area (when it is all done and looking lovely, I'll post a picture of my plan).
  • Research and knit/sew for my new project (wow, I had so much fun writing the first post for this!)

This week's list:
  • Finish Peppa Pig toy.
  • Unpack four more boxes.
  • Do three hours of hand quilting on Miss Ballerina's quilt. This seems to be never-ending! Miss Ballerina asked today if it would be finished for this winter. Let's hope so!
  • Clean out and organise laundry cupboard.
  • Process the last of the peaches into Peach Pie Filling. This is a great recipe that I first made last year. We can't get enough of it to make crumble and pie during winter.
  • Process, pack and freeze meat from our butchered cow.
  • Do cutting list for Whirlwind's Minecraft quilt, using this one for inspiration.
  • Research and knit/sew for my new project (this will be a permanent feature of the list now).
And the colour theme for this Monday is spring break - where would you go?

 A tropical jungle waterfall looks quite inviting.

 I would love to take my knitting and sewing and spend some time in this English cottage.

But all time holiday wish list destination has always been Ireland. 
I'm not a beach person at all; I need greenery around me and Ireland seems to have the green theme down!


  1. Ireland sure does have the green theme down. I'm not a "sit on the beach" kind of girl. I prefer rocky beaches with lots of tide pools. Those are my kind of beaches.

    Lovely palettes! I love that you do more than one too. It's fun, isn't it?

    1. I like rocky beaches too. Or the beach in winter - crowded summer beaches are not for me!
      The colour palettes are fun. So glad you introduced them to me!
