So far, so good. The re-introduction of The List is proving to be a good idea. I have been a little crafty with it and while it looks pretty comprehensive some items are ongoing and if I have done just a little bit of it then I can tick it off as done. Ha!
One of the items was 1 dozen Klosjes and as it is Saturday here they are. I had forgotten just what a pleasure it is to make these dear little blocks and now I wonder why I abandoned them. Life, hexagons and just plain starting too many other things I guess. Well, I am back in business and I love them.
This little beaded thimble holder has gone to a good home and I know that it is going to be well loved. They are lovely to make if not a little fiddly but well worth the effort, decorative and with a practical use. That background should be a pale pink so don't know why it is orange. The beads are a dark blue and pale grey.
I still cannot stop making these and now the total stands at 60 flowers. That is halfway of the 120 that I need. I am still thinking of the background and at Kate's last week we had a little play with Wendy's hand dyed fabrics trying out different colours and shades. It is amazing just what happens to these flowers when you use certain shades. Some colours just made them look really dull, while some made them pop out of the background. Still love the teal though.
Half a dozen diamonds now brings the total to 54. I am not buying anything for this quilt other than the background. Every diamond has to come from my vast stash.
This week I have been busy trying to tidy and sort out my sewing space. I have shelves now and the cupboards are semi organised. Cannot show you yet as it is still work in progress.
