Despite my recent low rate of posting, I have achieved a few minor victories in the war on attacking WIP's and making some sense of the chaos that is my sewing room (I feel it may be related to the state of my somewhat disordered brain!). This week I aim to clear the backlog of posts and share the good, the bad and the ugly!
Last Sunday I aimed to finish this...my Sue Ross BOM from Material Obsession. I had a major tantrum ages ago when, as I went to construct the top my points did not all match perfectly! So much breath holding and foot stamping ensued, that it was packed away for nearly two years (roughly). So, out it came in all it's lovely glory and without further bother, fuss or ado, it was sewn together, pressed and readied for the quilter.
A wacky back was ordered from MO and it's next journey was ready to begin. I had always planned to hand quilt, but our relationship is obviously a tad unsteady, so time apart may let us appreciate each other again! It really is lovely, but the points are not perfect and that is my own issue!
I love this backing for the Kaleidoscope quilt too.
This block has sat unloved for a considerable length of time too...so it is now a cushion complete with concealed zipper back and piping...looks fun.
There were lots of comments about Brigitte Giblin's hexie bag. That one was made with large handles, but I bought these smaller handles from her to make a smaller version...love those funky handles.
A dear friend was having an attack of the glums this week...I know what she means...hayfever, daylight savings, lives TOO full...so she sent out an SOS for a visitor...it will be fun for both of us to catch up...I told her to batten down the hatches as this Cardy is going country very soon! Woo Hoo...might have to borrow some real boots this time!
