Now, what have I been up to? Nothing as exciting or productive as I would like and I'm starting to itch to get back behind my sewing machine. We took a family trip to Whangarei on Saturday and had a quick visit at The Country Yard, bought some thread but was otherwise very good. The trip was planned to look at hand towel rails, which would explain why we bought a dishwasher and a sofa! I also got backing fabrics for my cats and stars/logs so technically speaking these projects can now move along.
My Sunday was preplanned as I had agreed to give some of the teachers at the school my kids go to, a Patchwork 101 type of lesson, and considering that I have never taught patchwork or even attended a patchwork class (other than hand quilting) - it all turned out rather well. This of course help attribute to the bomb site my house had evolved into. But we're getting there.
Now, I must post this photo for Rona because it has been driving me mad looking at it and thinking of her citrus quilt. Now, wouldn't it be exciting to do a few double crescent things???
|Sorry about the sunstrike - this is the pattern on the side of a box... cool aye?|
|Have I already posted these??? I love the spot and bought extra just in case...|
|It is really all farmland but doesn't it look like the sea?|
And finally, I was treated to this new book at our local library:
and fell in love with this block. There are a few quilts with appliqued circles on them at the moment, and wouldn't it be fun to take them one step further with a circle in a square? Does anybody have any idea of how to do these shapes in EQ6?
|And I may just have some fabric set aside that would|
look good in this sort of design... hmmm
