Ok, I've done a little bit! ;-)
I've been making a flurry of farmer's wife quilt blocks and had so much fun with them! I've noticed when I've pulled all my blocks together they all look very bright and 'pretty' so I wanted to tone it down a bit with some more muted tones, so that's what I've done with these blocks. In my next post I'll lay them all out for a progress report. Until recently I used to just make random blocks from the book I fancied making at that particular time, now I've got a little more strict so I'm working on them in order - which is sooo much easier! I have no idea why I didn't think of doing this before?
I think this is my new favourite; #26 Cut Glass Dish. The yellow fabric is a vintage piece from my stash, I have the tiniest amount so it was perfect for a bit of fussy cutting to use in my FWQ. The small floral is a Liberty Tana Lawn which is another stash favourite, and the cream background is the Le Creme Swiss Dot.
So what else have I been up to? Oh, I left the sewing room, as I occasionally do ;-) and took a lovely walk around the coast where we live. The photo above is walking from Porthcurno, overlooking Logans Rock in Cornwall.
AND … my fiancé Robin and I have finally made a decision and booked our wedding, we're eloping in Maui this October - I cannot wait!!!!! We got engaged in October 2012 (can't remember if I mentioned that on the blog here?) so I'm excited things are getting sorted! :-) and of course I already have grand plans for lots of dressmaking for the holiday! Let's see how I get on… Hope you all had a good month. xo
