First of all I would like to say welcome to Anne, I am a few days late but sometimes my mind does not just wander it leaves altogether.
I gave you a sneaky peak at ny proposed Scrap Vomit Quilt yesterday, well things have moved on apace.
Then I did this.
I am not about to unpick, these will become pot holders with a thick layer of insulating batting and a backing fabric to brighten them up.
If anyone would like one let me know.
That sound terrible, I only need 2 as I have some that I purchased from The Silver Sewer and love them. So there will be 2 up for grabs.
Earlier this morning I was indulging in a little blog hopping and happened upon the messyjessecraft blog. She was doing a show and tell on what she called her "Little House on The Prairie" quilt. Very Pretty . I shamelessly stole her idea and came up with this
I have just laid the 4 patch blocks out on a light but low volume background fabric. I am almost there. I will pull some more fabrics from the stash and try them out, I may choose something with a slightly darker background or I may go for a solid. On the other hand I may pick 4 fabrics and make 8 patch blocks.
I will keep you posted.
I had to have the picture quite large to show the different effects, for some reason I can not rotate them today.
I was going to prattle on about random thoughts but this has taken over, there are a few things that I would like to share though.
I am feeling particularly lucky today
I do not have to choose between warmth or food.
I do not have to slog away in a job that I detest so that I can pay my bills.
I am able to save for the things that I may want or need in the future.
I live in a warm comfortable home that is mine.
I am surrounded by love and friendship every day of my life.
I am literate and numerate, giving me infinite opportunities.
I could go on but there is no need, I am sure that you see where I am coming from.
Happy Sunday to you all. TTFN Pam
