I have to admit to being a slack blogger and not responding to your lovely comments over the last couple of posts, my apologies, but I've had other things on my mind. I'll try to do better.
Now a little progress has being happening here. I mentioned a couple of posts ago that I was going to try my hand at designing a stitchery quilt. After a lot of tweaking, and probably a little more to come I have the thirteen blocks drawn up and traced out. I sat and stitched the first block a couple of nights ago and have to say I'm happy with it's simplicity. While I was stitching, I was thinking about how I want these set, and what type of fabrics I'd like to use, and then I had one of those light bulb moments. Geesh two of those in a week.......and remembered I had a beautiful jelly roll that I purchased several weeks ago, Urban Indigo. Perfect for the look I wanted. What do you think?
(note to self, hide the ugly ironing board cover) I decided to try a different fabric for the stitching, and bought a yard of weavers cloth, I think I like it. (The basting stitch is my guide for where to trim the block).
Last night was guild, so I toddled along, and decided that if I want to get to know anyone here in my area, I needed to join in on some of the things they do. So today I spent a little time in the sewing room cutting fabrics for a mystery quilt sewing day tomorrow at the local library.
Believe it or not apparently what's in this little box is a quilt top. (notice the lovely pincushion, compliments of Darlene , gets used all the time ) , I've been rummaging through my stash trying to find fabrics to pull for this little quilt.
There are a couple of possibilities, but nothing that's jumping out and screaming choose me. I wanted to do the mini, which to me really isn't a mini at 27 inches square. So it looks like I'll have to go shopping, oh darn....lol...
Well time to finish packing the few things for the sewing day tomorrow.
Happy Stitching, and thanks for visiting, I do enjoy all your lovely comments and emails.
