Block 4 - TulipsFast forward to panic stations prior to going to Portland for a sewing weekend. I searched the house from top to bottom for my wool stash. I knew it wasn't very big, but it was disappointingly small when I found it! For some reason I thought I had lots of colours and I don't :(
Block 8 - ChivesSo while we were visiting Periwinkle Patchwork in Warrnambool I brought some more wool so I could start my blocks. And more importantly I brought some gorgeous linen to stitch them onto. And then I didn't touch anything for a few weeks! However as the weather declines into chilly and wet, I have been busy tracing patterns, choosing colours and stitching in front of the TV.
Block 7 - Cone flowers
So now I have three blocks made and another three traced out. This block is being held up by my lack of satisfaction with the colour and size of the leaves - I will either make the leaves larger or a different colour, so they stand out more.
I might go shopping for more wool! A girl needs a decent sized wool stash...well this wet windy winter I do at least!
Hope your surviving the start of the snow season in front of a heating source of some sort and with some form of stitching,
Happy quilting Sue.
