Here at last, a lovely three days without a huge plan of 'things to do' within stitchery. Still trying to get back to somewhere near normal, I am not going to work at weekends. Having done this for what seems like ever, it is so strange to get two days off together each week.
I am ever hopeful this weekend to be well (please)
Its not been a too bad week, with the highlight a visit from both of my children, certainly a big boost for the immune system. Gosh I hate being an 'empty nester'
I found a jelly roll whilst looking for some other pieces of fabric. For those of you not patchwork obsessed a jelly roll is a selection of fabrics from a fabric manufacturer cut to 2 1/2 inches by the full width of the fabric usually around 42 inches. There are usually around 20 strips.
Anyway I found this, the only one that I have ever bought, purchased for one of the fabrics alone (mad and madder I get)
I spend hours faffing with it to make it work into the pattern I devised for a table centre using Ricky Tims Kalediscope method
In the end, I sewed them together and have just finished cutting it out
Ive cut them out now and wow guess I have taken a trip back to the late 1960's
I have misplaced my lead to my camera to take photos at the moment, which is really annoying me
I shall be stitching this piece over the coming weeks, hopefully I can show it, if I find the lead
Had a new class this morning with some new students, all very lovely. The sun was streaming in the window, what a lovely way to spend a morning with happy people quilting. I had a lovely couple, young man and woman who worked together and chose beautiful modern fabric. I was so pleased to see him stitching so well, I love my job
