Where did the last week go? I have been on Night Duty so it’s hard to even keep track of what day it is. I have just been to the Post Office to post my Advent Swap off to Germany-watch out for the postie Sigrid.
I must’ve been half asleep when I decided to sign up to participate in making Josephs Coat that Kellie is hosting at Don’t Look Now. As if I haven’t got enough projects in the sewing room but this quilt looks brilliant so I couldn’t resist.
I am intending to use what is in the stash so we will see how we go. Janet over at Quiltsalott has chosen her fabrics and they look great. I had also thought a blue theme may deplete the stash a little!!
I have managed a little stitching this past week some of which I can show.
This is a doorstop I made using the pattern by Vicki over at Among the Gum Trees . This was so easy to make and as I have an African theme in my lounge I decided to go for that look and it is sitting proudly at my front door.. These are so easy to make and I will be making more for sure.. I sprinkled aromatherapy oil onto the filling so I have a lovely scent wafting through the house.
This pink log cabin block is the start of what will be a pink version of A Patch of Blue by June Gilchrist and Therese Hylton, that was first published in 2001. It appeared again in Cover Quilts No 1 published by Australian Patchwork and Quilting last year. This is going to be for my nieces daughter. I made her older sister a purple one a few years ago and have had the pink fabrics for some time and now the call has come out-when am I getting my pink one? I love that children say it as it is. Can I get it done by January when I take a trip back to NZ? The challenge is on!
Check out this giveaway that Kelly is having over at I have a Notion .A wonderful autographed book on Thread Work.
Happy Stitching everyone.
