Almost four weeks since I last wrote a post, lots going on around here mostly
medical issues to cope with for me, hopefully matters have eased somewhat and normal
service should be resumed!
Last time I posted I had made a start on Chain Link Horizon, a little progress
happened this week.
Not what I could call an elegant photograph,
I've sewn four rows together at one time and pinned them up on the wall,
trimming needs to be dealt with and threads cleaned up. Five more rows
yet to sew.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will spot that the blue 'star' on the RH side
has two different fabrics in the top three half hexagons. I had a small piece
of a lovely Philip Jacobs fabric left in my blue bin and was sure there
was just enough for the three needed and began cutting - wrong, not
enough so I substituted with one piece of
PJ Blue Feathers.
Three of my favourite combinations are below.
So what have I been doing whilst taking an enforced break?
Catching up on reading, planning a re-organisation of my
quilting studio, thinking about what needs to be taken care of
in the garden, but not able to do it, deciding which older pieces of
furniture will get the Chalk Paint treatment.
Watching Autumn creep into the garden has been a pleasure, just
walking around looking at which plants have finished and
which are now flowering - not many I'm afraid.
On a walk around the block this beautiful Liquidambar
caught my eye
along with a favourite sight of mine at this time of year
a Sasanqua camellia, I always love to see
the carpet of fallen petals, and of course now flowering
are the hibiscus
we have quite a few in our garden.
I'm devoting tomorrow morning to catching up with reading your blog posts,
unfortunately this daily pleasure fell by the wayside.
I'm looking forward to my normal routine again now.
See you soon!!
