It's just been one of those weeks when everything seems to conspire to stop me sewing, and when I do sew I can't find what I want and it takes me ages to make very little progress.
It's been back to the circles, and I suppose I shouldn't expect to race ahead, after all I chose to appliqué them, and it was supposed to be a pick up and go project, but hey, I'm not always known for my patience.
So here is where I am now, from 16 completed blocks last week I now have 23 this week. I have been struggling with colours, the original fabric pull didn't have enough variety for the pattern so I ordered a pack of Amish Jewels 10 inch squares. While this has given me more variety it has also brightened it up. This is not the layout by the way and I have more colours and shades to add.
I have made two quarter circles in most colours, and three in about six or seven because I ran out of colours. Well, I did have another three or four but they were too similar to what I already had.
So what do you think of it so far? I think it needs another element, I have an idea but I will know better when I finish the blocks.
I also took two skirts up for my Mother in Law this week. She just had her 90th birthday and has gone blind so she needs a bit of help with things.
I have been choosing fabrics this week though, no I'm not telling, it's a surprise. I'm doing a guest post on Building Blocks Tuesday later this month, yes, really, you can believe it, I tell you true. So I just thought, as I haven't done one before, I would do something different, a quilt on my wish list for ages, to celebrate. And maybe I could have some cake...........
That's all my news for this week, except it is only 10 days until I go back to Higham Hall for another embroidery weekend. Maybe it's time I did my homework.
Until next time
