May 6th was my last post!
I have been trying to get around to writing before this but the last
month has been a round of medical appointments and quilting seemed
to be left behind unfortunately, also reading your blog posts was on hold I'm afraid.
Back to catching up tomorrow.
I have been filling and sorting out my
fabric baskets as time and energy allowed, I have full yards and
half yards tucked away in these and I can now see which colours I have aplenty
and which are somewhat lacking. Yellow/orange/brown below.
My larger pieces are stored in a good sized cupboard. and quarters
in sliding drawers.
I keep all my Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics separate from other ranges,
I also give the Spot and Aboriginal Dot ranges their own basket,
also the multi Zigzags and Diamond Stripes and similar types.
Let's get on to the Green Diamond quilt, I think it should be known as
the Green Diamond Disaster!
You've seen it in progress here on the blog, small diamonds which of course meant
bias edges were involved. I cut on my Accuquilt, I starched, I pinned and still
have ended up with a slightly wonky quilt top!!! The occasional missed
match up of points doesn't worry me too much but the stretchiness does,
here's a quick photo on the wall before I decided to bury it in a drawer
for the foreseeable future.
I was given a quilt a few weeks ago, made by me 18 months ago for a dear friend
when she was nearing the last few months of her life.
Her husband came around for a lunch with us a few weeks ago and towards the end of his
visit said that he and the family felt they would like to return the quilt to me
in memory of Dianne.
Greatly treasured and I couldn't help the tears.
On a happier note husband and I celebrated 53 years of marriage last week
and I was given a beautiful cheery bouquet of sunflowers
such a glorious colour.
That's all from me right now and will close with a photo of a
beautiful sunset a few days ago
just look at those colours.
Oh, forgot to say husband and I had our first Covid 19 vaccine last week, Yay!!
