Fun in my fabric world....

Going 'round in circles!

It's been one of THOSE weekends!

Not acheiving all I had hoped to achieve...oh, well, maybe my goals were a tad ambitious. Surprise, but very welcome visitors...unexpected interruptions...teenage sons...you know how it is!

So......

when I am stressed I stitch...sew all of that angst into the fabric!

I participated in the Dolly Quilt club last year, and this was one of my favourites...

made with the Creative Grids 18 deg wedge ruler...it is a must have...easy, quick & great fun with coordinates or scraps.


I spent a little time playing with it yesterday...added some ricrac for edging like I had seen here...and I was really pleased with the result. I was talking with blog mentor extraordinare, Chookyblue, & she said that there were lots of Dresdens in blogland at present...isn't it weird that we all share common thoughts...hmmmm! Scary!
Also spent a few hours push mowing my quite large yard...the rideon mower wouldn't start...good head clearing time though! Good exercise on a pleasant day.

Hope your weekend has been a happy one...

I've also noticed the dresden plate thing happening. I found you through Chookyblue. LOVE the rick rack at the edge. I've tried it but first attempt was a bit unsuccessful. Very fiddly working on a circle. I want to give it another try.

Hey, chin up, Girlfriend - I think we should all divorce our families, lol! I have one of those rulers, too - just need the time to experiment!
