I should be outside doing lots and lots of gardening. Got a half pruned Wisteria to finish off and lots and lots of bramble clearing. Not to mention getting rid of about 20 cherry tree saplings which seem to have sprung up without me noticing.
Instead I'm sewing away for a birthday present for The Young One.
Remember when I made a birthday present for her friend Fanny and The Young One II?
I'm going to something similar, but bigger. I was going to to a huge A, with l e x on one line and n d r a on the next.
So I made a start and, of course, changed my mind when I looked at it.
That A is about 10" high! Debating whether to consign them to the Parts Dept and start again. How about Miss Alex Kate which is what she is known by in cyber space?
Also restarted my batik/liberated log cabin houses. I have been reading through Collaborative Quilting and just love Gwen and Freddy's houses. Not too sure what I'm going to do with them yet, but they are so fun to make. A riot of colour!
Cut batiks into strips - any width and length.
Toss them all together.
When you choose a strip shut your eyes.
Open them. Sew to cabin and
DO NOT CHANGE YOUR MIND!
I'm also got another project going. I gave TYO a choice of music quotes. She's music mad! She's chosen her quote and the fabrics, but she had to make sure they went with the letter fabric I used for Hummmm. She chose exactly what I would have chosen!
