Hello lovely quilters, how are you this wonderful Wednesday? Tell me, what have you been up to?
I’ve been a bit absent from social media lately. I really needed to hunker down and just sew something.
Happy mail! A bundle of newbies from The Patchwork Angel at Forest Glen. The fabric is called “Create” by Kristy Lea for Riley Blake Designs.
I’m very, very happy to say the ‘Who’s at the Zoo‘ quilt top has been finished, bundled up, and posted to the lovely Julie to work her magic.
I’m extraordinarily pleased that I finished a quilt and didn’t bin it because I didn’t think it was good enough to be released.
I’m hoping the pattern will be ready in about a week. Stay tuned!
Moving right along to the Fairytale Sew-Along quilt… well this one’s been problematic but only because I keep having to pack away my work boxes every time someone makes an inspection of the house and I keep losing pieces.
We’ve finally said no to more inspections for the time being. We had a great offer on the house a couple of weeks ago but there’s been nothing available in our price range for months now (to buy). It’s been so bad in our area and surrounds, the real estate agent would’ve even write up the contract. It was a bit of a gut-wrenching decision not to pursue it.
However back to the Fairytale quilt… I’ve found all the pieces (except the last row – which is a mission for the weekend) and it will finally be assembled and sent off to Julie to quilt.
There will be a Fairytale Sew-Along update on Friday night.
Next on the list is a simplified version of the Doll House quilt, a new Christmas quilt, and a new robot quilt.
Take care lovely people, see you on Friday, much love, toni xx
