Hi everyone. I have actually blogged twice in one month……..just about. It has been a cold dull January until the past couple of days, when the snow came. Now everything looks pretty and clean, and the sun shining on the white white stuff just brightens up the day .
I havent done much sewing. I am working on my quilt for GD who chose the fabric herself. It is Guttermann fabric. The block is a disappearing hour glass. I saw it on youtube with the missouri quilt company’s Jenny.
I like the block, but it needs very careful stitching and cutting, or things go haywire. I have already two blocks that wont belong, as I cut them wrong.
Ah well, they will be good for a pillow or something.
I didnt quite finish did I?
I kept going with GD’s quilt, and she loves it.
I have a couple of little bags made as gifts. Cant find the pics, so I am off to see what happened to them…….technology gets to me sometimes.Found one.
The weather is once more better for walking in my favourite place, the park. The first day there was still a skim of ice on the lake and the birds were ‘walking on thin ice’Next day was much better, and this swan family came looking for food. They had only one grown cygnet.
Finally, on a stitching note. I have been having another go at foundation piecing. I say ‘a go’ as I am convinced my brain is not wired to understand it. I know what to do, but I end up reverse sewing. However I am getting there. Will reveal in a couple of months……yes, it will take that long.
Bye for now.Happy Valentine’s Day.
