There's a wall space in our bedroom that I have been threatening to make a mini-quilt for for a considerable time (maybe three years). But, somehow, I have always had more urgent projects on my make list. So the space is still waiting.
On my quest to clear as much of my sewing list as possible and to use up rather than have to store supplies once relocated from my sewing room, I decided that it's time to get on with the mini-quilt for the wall.
So, I prepped a bordered centre with some of my Bonnie and Camille fabrics for an embroidery design.
Then, after a little play with some word processing fonts, I arranged the little design in my head on to paper and transferred it to the fabric ready for a little perle action over my Easter break from work.
It's the first stanza of an Emily Dickinson poem -
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops - at all.
Gotta get busy now!
