A few years ago we had a great range of fabric in the shop by Nancy Halvorsen, called Curiosities and Mischief. Curiosities had a lovely combination of pink, lilac, strawberry and yellow. Mischief was full of green, brown, orange and teal. Both had cute little pictures on some of the fabrics. We got through metres of that fabric!
One of the projects we made was a railfence quilt based on a mini jelly roll of twenty strips. Since we have now sold out of the fabric I really need to get round to making another sample quilt in a new range, and the sample we had in the shop has been unloved for a while. When I was looking for a quilt to take for a walk this week it seemed like the perfect opportunity to give Mischief a little love.
In a few weeks I am going on a long (73km) walk with my sister, so to get in a bit of training I decided to hike up to Rocky Lookout. It's a 350m (over 1000 feet) climb in just over 3 kilometres, so quite a challenge for me if not for the super fit Kiwis who run up there every week!
The view of the mountains with the snow still on the very tops was gorgeous
It was hard work getting up the hill so I didn't take any photos, but when I got to the top and emerged from the bush I had time to look out at the view back down the valley
Out came Mischief!
It was pretty hard to get a decent photo as it was a little bit breezy up there
It's also quite a busy track on a bright spring day, and I'm still a little bit shy about people seeing this crazy lady with her quilt, so I took a few more photos and headed on back down the hill.
Another lovely walk completed, and the rest of the day to sit behind the computer dreaming up new designs!
