I’m probably a bit late on this … but …. Happy New Year!!!
(and my apologies for not posting for so long, and effectively falling off the face of the earth for a while. My New Year’s resolution is to try to be a better blogger!!)
I’ll try to catch you up on everything I’ve been doing …. there were a lot of quilts last year, and time became my biggest enemy (and failing at my attempt to become superwoman didn’t help much, either 😉 ) Some, alas, may be lost to all but their current owners, as there was an ‘incident’ before Christmas with my SD card …. it was borrowed by the oldest nestling for a GCSE Art photogaphy project, and hasn’t been seen since. I suppose I should take some of the responsibility, since I’d been slack in the uploading-photos-to-laptop department 🙁
In the meantime, here’s a quick shot of what I’m doing now ….
Deconstructing a stack of rugby shirts ….
Cutting them nicely into pieces – I’m working off a 5″ square grid here, scaling up as necessary to take in important logos, numbers, etc
and fitting them nicely together ….
the quilting is going on …. a geometric diamond grid of 5″ squares in red, white and blue. It’s just about done now – the binding just needs to be stitched down.
I have this little nasty to deal with. It’s not the end of the world, more like a curve ball, but it’s still a little scary. Fingers crossed that a single surgery will see it off?
And the dog continues to be horrified by the cat’s outrageous behaviour …
I hope 2016 brings you all you hope for!
Now – I have 25-odd feet of binding to hand-stitch down, so if you’ll excuse me?
