I promised to get back to stitching this post..... I have been drooling over a Robyn Falloon pattern for a very looong time. I never usually have time to stitch other designers work and I let them slide by me with a sad face. BUT! I decided that has to change and if I really love something I am going to make time. So after sending for this pattern it occurred to me how much fabric was involved..groan, groan! Wasn't I suppose to be making a dent in my stash?? * lightbulb* I then remembered a huge stash of fabric that I had collected ages ago to make a quilt I fancied but could not work out how to make it using needle turn applique so had banished it in disappointment.....oh joy when I discovered the yummies I had squirreled away...want to see?
Aren't they lovely and they will be perfect! I want an olde world but not drab lot of fabrics. I will show you the pattern when it arrives. I then must leave them alone until I get closer to the end of Roma's Quilt. I know that I will fail and have to have a little turn of it!
I have finished my Jacobean type, species unknown birdie block.
Last night I nearly completed another birdie block who happens to love strawberries. Tiredness defeated me....so he needs his legs and a little more embroidery.
Still have about 6 more blocks to ponder on.
Honestly sometimes I just think I must live in a hollow log or it takes me a while to notice new things that come into view. Recently I discovered a new (to me) magazine at the library which I just loved but I quickly read all they had and was impatient not seeing others I hadn't. I was very excited to see the other day that my local news agency is now carrying it. You will all probably tell me it's been around for ages but folks I am just loving....
Some of the quilts featured in Quiltmania are just delicious...here was I vowing no more mags for me...ah well! I say admire beauty and take inspiration where you find it.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
