I have been around somewhere… I’ve had a week of concentrating on house and homeschooling. I guess that does have to happen too sometimes 🙂
Here are the “windclouds”: (they are supposed to be windmills, but I thought they were clouds..)
They are very light, but when I put them with the other blocks they do look good, and when you are looking at them in real life instead of a dark photo, they look better 🙂
After the windclouds I did the falling leaves:
I wanted to clear some floor space and lay all the blocks out, but haven’t quite managed to do that. I will sew the tulips (next blocks) and then try to find a sunny spot to take a photo of them all.
In the madness of life, I also decided to play a little…..
I started a disappearing nine patch.
I bought the blue floral fabric with Tracy on our camping weekend back in March. It was $5 a meter and I bought two meters knowing I’d find something to do with it 🙂 The other fabric was from the souk (I bought a bolt!) and matches perfectly. So, frugal as well as fun 🙂
AND I started on a quilt for Cameron… I shouldn’t have started something else new, I know, but poor guy, he pays for all this fabric and I haven’t made him one single quilt…..
So, I dragged out some “guy” fabric from Evelyn (my wonderful quilting teacher and friend in Riyadh), and made a start….. Since I hate checks and stripes because I can never get them straight, I decided to do a crazy patchwork and started with a stack and whack or stack and slash or whatever you call it. And I also made a few spider web blocks:
It is a start anyway. Notice with the spiderweb blocks – they DO NOT MATCH… hrmph. I tried unpicking, but it still didn’t work, so I came up with a cunning plan to fix it later on…. you will have to wait and see 🙂
And so, that is all my sewing news…. back to school and housework now….
