It's been a funny sort of week for me, not
as in "ha ha" funny but a pretty frustrating one.
I showed a photo of a book by
Judy Newman some time ago, beautiful old-fashioned sort
of quilts, soft colours. This week was the time
to begin one that I found particularly lovely.
I spent ages pulling fabrics - some below - and as I'm not known for my soft pastel colours
it was difficult finding fabric to use, some are below but
when I had the first row in place on the wall, it just wasn't
me!! Didn't work at all, I needed a colour fix
so on to Section 10 of Gypsy Wife. Two small blocks sewn - one
obviously a bit on the too small side - and a few strips later
my tendonitis flared suddenly which put
paid to any more cutting or sewing, I made it just this far below.
I took a telephone call from the hospital where they asked me
to please come in for an appointment Friday (tomorrow), I needed
to be seen sooner than my scheduled appointment in a few
weeks time, so that didn't add to my week.
There was a bright spot yesterday with a package in the mail of two books
ordered a couple of months ago.
The colour in these two is amazing, I think of the two my favourite
is New York Beauties and Flying Geese, full to bursting
I intend to relax tomorrow before going to the hospital with these two.
So, not a productive week at all but I did take a photo
of one of my beautiful hibiscus
and hopefully I shall be back at the machine early next week,
Hope you've all had a good week with lots of quilting.
