Too bad, I'm showing you anyway, ha!
Firstly, I have been back at Thursday night class. I was a bit gutted to miss the first week of the class when Judith was teaching needleturn applique but for the past two Thursday nights I've been working on satin stitch applique and sketching.
All of this technique and skill building is leading to making a choice of one of the techniques to make an applique cushion. I feel some of my Ruby scraps may be put to use for this selfish make - watch this space!
During the week Judith and I got our heads together on a Bee Blessed quilt and, attempting to remember and recreate my Grey Wonky Blocks quilt, have worked collaboratively on these lovelies.
I just love those greens and am thinking that some of that Kona Green Tea has to find its way into my fabric shopping basket soon.
The next project start comes with apologies to Catherine. I have been giving her a hard time for showing off Christmas makes already (sorry, Catherine!) and now have to confess that I had a hankering after a bit of festive fabric myself earlier in the week. So, I started work on the stocking my son has requested for his teacher's Christmas gift.
I forgot how much I enjoy making Christmas stockings and think this is probably the earliest one I have EVER made. (And Catherine, you now have complete authority to give me a hard time right back.)
The Not So Gross quilt has also been resurrected since being shelved in July along with the Swoon quilt. It has had borders added and quilting is now finished, but I'm waiting to finish the binding before sharing it with you properly.
And then today, I just had a wee itch to do something new, so here's what I'm up to now.
Wonky crosses are blocks I've wanted to try since I first saw them on Oh Fransson, and I was not disappointed in my play time this afternoon. I still have half of the blocks to finish but I love the ones I have done so far (the two right hand columns).
This project was also about trying to be better at selecting and mixing fabrics and I think I'm getting there. At first I wasn't sure that I could get away with mixing aqua, turquoise, teals and slightly greener aqua but I think it's going to be okay (fingers crossed). Really looking forward to finishing this off when I have a few days off later this week.
Hope you all have been having fun too!
