Soooo blogging went out the window for a while, nevermind!!
We’ve had the Easter holidays and I’ve had a super busy time in the job so something had to give.
My daughter was also sick then developed a fear of being sick and refused to eat which was a little stressful so getting past that has been a big focus these last few weeks. I mean she didn’t even want her Easter eggs…there *had* to be something wrong with the child!
Happy to say we seem to past that now so I am back to the blogging.
Anyway I have quite a lot of things to catch up on:
I could say that my goal for this month is to finish my city sampler, but I would feel a bit like I’m cheating as it is already finished. You must be sick of hearing that by now, but no honestly it is!!
Here’s a hint:
So instead I thought it would be nice to get started on the bucket list.
At the end of the month very excitingly I am travelling down to the big smoke and meeting with my Strip Bee quilty friends…yay!
I LOVE lists, I am a list kind of person. It’s my way of trying to organise my very unorganised brain! I’m not sure how helpful it actually is as I tend to make a list, look at it once, forget where I’ve put it, things change, I revise list…and so on!!
I’m hoping this will help sort things out.
1. Improv Sampler Quilt
First on the list is an improv sampler…..like this beauty:
This pic led me to the hop as Heidi of Fabric Mutt is one of the first stops. I just LOVE it!
I’ve done the old City Sampler (no finished photos yet sorry!) so I’m looking for something more relaxed and a bit haphazard (in a good way)!!! Continue reading →
As promised I’m back looking for some opinions. I managed to scrape together some possible fabrics to use as sashing/background. They are not looking the best – poor light and lack of ironing (there was no way that was going to happen!) but you get the idea.
Now ignore the pattern on the fabric…like I said I had to scrape together some examples as my stash is somewhat limited. So what I’m thinking here is Kona Cypress or Kale.
I really like this colour, but worried that some of my greens may get a bit lost.
