After not posting here for months, it's actually a bit hard to know what to write!
Clearly, the intention to 'do a blog post tonight' or 'read blogs tomorrow' just got further down my priority list. There's only so much this gal can pack into a day LOL.
That said, following some recent email exchanges with a couple of blogging buddies, I realised just how removed I have become from blogland & the fabric-y thread-y online community... & perhaps that's been a contributing factor to my not doing so much sewing & stitching... if that makes sense.
While I have been doing a little sewing & stitching, there's been a lot more of everything else going on ahead of it.
We all want to do more than the daylight hours allow for, so I'm not going to get overly philosophical about it😉😉
I have a couple of things I'd like to share...
This is the current situation with the Scrappy Hexy Quilt... it's getting so big now... still a nice thing to plod along with because I have a lot of evenings on my own these days.
I recently joined in Mystery Scrap Buster-style workshop at my patchwork group.
A 'scrap buster'... don't we all need one of those?!
I am not at all someone confident with 'mystery' & my versions of 'random' or 'scrappy' turn out something akin to a fabric vomit... but I really wanted to join in, hoping it would be just the project to get me back into doing more sewing.
Happy to report that it has! Just getting out to my sewing room for a little while each day & doing a bit more, it's been fun to get back to some Pfaff-ing!
It can be a little hard to make out the pattern created by the print fabrics & background fabric... it took me a while. As more rows are done & sewn, it will be easier to see. It's 55inches wide.
I'd also like to share with you a quilt I made & gifted. This went to my cousin... the closest I have to a sister... she had an '0' birthday recently. When looking through my Overload for fabric ideas for it, I found this stunning layer cake from Kate Spain, a range called 'Voyage'; I knew it would be just right.
The pattern is the Moda Love freebie & such a great one for showing off fabulous prints like these.
Very pleased with how it turned out & my quilter Julie did her usual stunning work on it too.
|Still find it hard to get good pics of big things!|
This measures about 78inches square.It was very hard to send this one away!
Spring is definitely here in my little part of WA... so nice to open some doors & windows for that lovely fresh breeze & the birds are amazing.
Thanks for dropping in to my blog today... AND thanks to my friends who kindly checked up on me & inspired me to venture out of my cocoon!
