Fun in my fabric world....

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Almost seemed like snow.

Weather wise, this week has been pretty miserable! Lots and lots of rain...roads cut by flooding and terrible damage to our roads...potholes that damaged many cars...and all the coastal highway traffic diverted inland to us because of coastal flooding causing even more damage. Whilst it poured outside I finally sewed these old chenille squares together...I am loving them, BUT you should have seen the mess...it looked like there had been a blizzard in my sewing room. It has felt miserable enough for snow!
 On Tuesday I headed down to Maitland for my next instalment of Brigitte Giblin inspiration.
Always fun and now I am getting to know the other ladies in our class at Southern Cross Needlework...really nice! Brigitte is always inspiring as are the other ladies...great to see what they have been up to...and what they have been creating. Brigitte always seems to have "whipped up" something amazing.
I have been working on my 13 panel hexagons... I am hoping I am not too contemporary...I will need to be able to sleep under this!

Ha Ha, I can totally relate. I backed a quilt once in all chenille and it was fuzzy lint everywhere for weeks! Yours looks great and I'm sure you'll love snuggling under it, like I do mine now.
