They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but it feels like this picture is worth a thousand hours!
I've been very good about not overdoing the sewing sessions, I've tackled this in little increments and never once got overwhelmed by it, or felt ill at the thought of going on with it.
I don't quite know whether to start something completely new, or go on with my plan to cut down the number of UFOs in the sewing room. I want to splurge and fill up the design wall with something exciting, but then I also want to get those half-finished projects closer to completion too. Guess I don't have to decide straight away, and I could make one or two 'Trial' blocks of patterns that intruige me, and see if any of them want to take centre stage. Not another Major Project though, I need something frivolous I think.
I've sewn up most of the 2.5" triangles into pairs, and they are building into pinwheels for a scrap border. Now that the design wall is free I'll be able to put them up there and decide on the next plan of attack. I still love these colours, but I've made an awful lot of quilts that look the same, so it's time to branch out on the next lot. BLUE! I need to use up my blues.
A trip to the local Patchwork shop resulted in a bit of stash acquisition; I was on a mission to get more creams, but nothing much appealed to me, all too yellow. I finally succumbed to these ivory-whites from the Etchings line;
It's been the most horrid day here, so hot that the air itself burns you; We're supposed to get a cool change tonight, which will be very welcome. The poor dogs don't like it at all. Lucky there is air-conditioning to take the edge of the heat. There won't be any walkies tonight though :(
