this. Like it? Thank you everyone for your suggestions, isn't it ironic when you agonise over something then have to take the best available. Actually I really like it, it tones well and contrasts nicely with the plainness of the majority of the fabrics.
Here is the full view. The pale fabric looks better in these outside pics than last week.
These are the two leftover blocks to which I managed to add another couple of small blocks and more of the pink patterned fabric from the scraps. You have a good view of the quilting in this shot, yes it's still my favourite just now.
Here is the full view. I had a big piece of fabric left over from a quilt back, I love how the scraps liven up a boring background, especially as it is a child's quilt.
And of course, the obligatory posh pic!
I had a lovely time at my group on Saturday, there were only four of us, as one of our number was travelling home from France and another other two had other stuff going on preventing them from coming, but we had a very quilty giggle and they saw Bluebell in the flesh. As did a couple of ladies who on holiday who happened to call in. I had to give them the full history of course, and I'm still not sure that the look on their faces meant the were mesmerised, or they were thinking 'is this person for real?'.
Apart from finishing my little Linus Quilt which will be returned in a few days, I have made 'some' progress on my circles quilt. Must find a name for it but it's still evolving so I'm going to wait a bit.
I now have 16 blocks sort of finished, two more and I'm halfway through. I say sort of, before joining them, which obviously I won't until they are all done, I will trim the background underneath the appliqué to reduce the bulk. I do have another change in mind but as they come together I'm not sure and may leave it as is. By the way do you like the new floor? What you can see of it anyway, you wouldn't guess it's not wood would you? It's called Moduleo. or something like that, I can't remember the spelling. It's textured like wood too.
So that has been my week, quite boring really, except, I did a Global Block Swap which finished at the beginning of this year and one of the girls from Australia, Irene, is in the UK just now. AND she drove halfway up the country and had an overnight stay, just to come and meet me for a few hours. THEN, she drove all the way down south again, wasn't that lovely of her? I am so flattered she would do all that just to meet me. Irene is on her own in the UK too, although she is staying with relatives part of the time. I would show you a pic of us together but I forgot to ask her if it is ok and don't like adding pics without checking first.
So, you almost saw me with my newly gown, well, half grown, hair.
Until next time
