If you read my last post from 29th October you might recall that I showed
my scrap vortex cut into strips along with two other fabrics.
I also said that before the end of that week I would have something to
show for my efforts as I was now off crutches.
They are now back with me, hence the wording of the title.
Dictionary definition of the post title:
If you take one step forward, two steps back, you make progress but then
experience events that cause you to be further behind than you were when you made
In reality I have made al little progress in the past two days sewing a few seams and
buying new fabrics - necessary for therapy!
Below is the beginning of my take on a new Chinese Coins using the strips
Strips sewn 3" x 11 and 1/2", yes a bit of a strange size.
You can see that the bright scrap strips seem to be taking second place
to the dark combination.
Here is one completed strip, there will be three in total
My husband looked at this and said I had killed the colour,
perhaps I have but I am happy with it. Yes, it has darker elements rather
than my usual all over bright colour, I think sometimes our quilts reflect
our mood at the time, mine wasn't that great!
But here comes the colour starting with
the 2018 range of Moda Bella Solids - there a few moody darks
at the bottom of the bundle, I have plans for an Amish piece.
The next two photos are Tula Pink Zuma and sadly
these shots don't quite show the vibrancy of this range.
Don't ask what I have in mind for Zuma,I have a lot of ideas buzzing around.
The beauty of Tula Pink fabrics
is that they mix and match, especially when incorporating
her solids, stripes and dots.
Lunch time now - home baked savoury cheese muffins and a cuppa.
Fingers crossed for a little more sewing over the weekend.
