I have finished the baby chevron, a quilt from the WIP mountain and made some more cushion covers for my friend, I had just enough fabric to make another 4.
I just did straight line echo lines across the quilt, I am not a fan of fussy patterns, I want the fabric to be the star.
I had this lovely soft touch fabric in the stash and it was just big enough to self bind, something I have not done before, so a double whammy. I will be using this method again on small quilts I think, and I will definitely be making another Chevron quilt, using layer cake squares for a double bed size.
This quilt may ring a bell, I completed the top over a year ago, for some reason I struggled with layering it, the back wrinkled and the top "wandered" so into the WIP box it went.
It fell together this time and was a lamb. It is now packed and labelled ready to be sent to Australia, I hope that it arrives in time for my SIL to sit on it on Australia Day. It has the flag colours and I think that the Rail Fence pattern is vaguely flag like. The border and backing fabric is a Michael Miller print that reminded me of the Gum Nuts. The binding is from my recent purchase and I love how bright and cheerful it is.
The swirls make me think of whippy ice cream cornets, not something that I like but there will lots of them around on the day.
I walked Ben in the dry this morning and had intended to walk down to the Post Office but the rain is once again beating a tattoo on the windows. I do not mind in the slightest, I will still get my exercise walking the dogs and there is still the WIP mountain, and my knitting. I have pulled 2 more items from the mountain and I have been asked for a set of quilted table mats, scrappy to boot. I love scrappy and have pulled some crazy patchwork from the UFB box, that is the unfinished block box.
I feel a cup of tea coming on, and maybe a slice of toast. I hardly ever eat breakfast first thing, Ben is always eager for his first walk and then his breakfast. Once I feed him I clear the kitchen up and then get on with little jobs before I feel hungry.
Ooooh, on the subject of food, did anyone see that program last night about finding the right diet for you. The scientists have done an experimental program aimed at finding what kind of eater you are. I did the on line questions and I am a combination of all three, that may well be because on the multiple choice questions my answers were not there.
It figures, as I said the other day there are no easy answers, we are all different and have such a variety of reasons behind our eating habits. How many of you remember being told "you eat all that, starving children in India would love to have it". This used to come often, both at home and at school, and I have shovelled food in many times when I was already full.
I am not sure that I want that toast now.
