Waiting In The Wings

An early start to Sunday

We were sitting in front of the television at 4.30am today!!
The final of the Rugby World Cup and our All Blacks (New Zealand) were 
playing the Wallabies (Australia) and hooray the All Blacks won the day!!
Back to back wins and the only team to have won
the Cup three times - what a great game. However, I am now paying the price
for the early start to the day, all I have achieved
on the quilting front is to pull fabrics - 

deep pinks for my Scrappy Mountain Majesties (catch-up)

and lime greens for the colour of the month with
Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015
my iPad camera doesn't seem to be picking up the rich colour of
these limes even though I had them in various light sources
two more blocks for Scrap Vortex, once again there seems
to be an issue with colour you can see how dull these blocks
look, they actually are much brighter

a bit of work on finding the best light sourceset up needed I think.

This photo of the first rose to flower in the long side border is
the true colour

Hopefully I shall be more productive over the next few days!

What a morning, I woke at 3.30 a.m. up shortly after, coffee, then finally it began. I am so proud of the All Blacks, back to back wins, and so good when some of them played their last match. I succumbed to having a wee nap by lunchtime!! Then tried to cut some flying geese, it went wrong, too tired. Lovely colours in all your photos. Guess you'll sleep well tonight.

So glad to see the return of your Scrap Vortex. And to see you getting ready for the wind up for this year's Rainbow Scrappy Challenge. Didn't we just start?

Congratulations on the big win! At last a sport I know and recognise some team names in!!! (Lots of Mets and stuff on some blogs lately...no flippin idea what sport that is, haha!) I love your fabric pulls - and I spy a Philip Jacobs one in the deep pink set that I used quite a bit of in a hexie quilt top I've still to finish. I really love that print :) Your scrap vortex is looking good too. I have quite a few of those fabrics too, so I know just how bright and cheery they look in 'real life', it's going to be an awesome quilt :)

My ipad photos are not as good as my phone photos - not sure why, they just aren't. I do love your fabric pulls!!

Kaja said...

Love those bright pinks and greens. I sometimes have the same problem with my digital camera, It doesn't seem to do bright really well. I usually have to play with the tone settings to brighten them up.
