as many of you know, i go to hobart quite frequently, however this year, due to a few problems, i have been at home in melbourne over christmas and during january. i love watching the cricket and tennis, so have been amused and i have also enjoyed 'playing' with my stuff!!!
those of you who read linen and raspberry will know that jean also purchased from michelle yeo the pattern and templates for 'king david's crown', as i did just prior to christmas and we have talked about doing it together via our blogs. jean has done a post about it, so if any of you are interested to join us let us know and register your interest. i have collected my fabrics and have made a start also, i am hand piecing and fussy cutting, the blocks are simple to construct and most enjoyable to do, combining the colours and the prints. unlike jean, i have chosen my background and working with it as i go in a combination of reproduction fabrics and others where the colours appeal.
these blocks are much brighter in real life, i think that in my playing with the photos i have lost the intensity of the colour somewhat, fairly true, just not as crisp!!!!
my other addiction over this time, has been adding to my piece using all the little bits of fabric usually cast aside. i showed you earlier in a previous post, but it is growing and i am loving the look
notice the 'pear in there' jean !!!!!!!!
back soon with some embroidery to show!
