I started translating some of the sketches in pencil from yesterday into pastels today while Linc did his own drawing next to me again. Well he drew for about 10 minutes today then played with Lighting McQueen the rest of the time. Heavily modified version of Rosie's eye

I'm planning on shopping for the fabric for the Gallipoli quilt on Wednesday, and I scared the pants off myself when I worked out how much fabric I need! I want to get it and colour it all at once, so I worked out at 150cm wide I need 22m of backing fabric. That's just the back. I also need another 30m plus for the front. Yikes!

I'm not thinking about how much all the thread is going to cost yet, one financial crisis at a time.
