Winter means nights in, in front of the fire.
Nights in front of the fire means hand-sewing.
BTW, thank you SBS for playing a great movie last night on the telly ~ “Walk the Line” with Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon~ I stayed up till the end and got lots o’ stitching done.
This is a finished block from last week
And here’s how the finished blocks are looking on the design wall this morning,
OMG Ombre is on the quilting machine and nearly done.
So with the imminent finish of another quilt, I’ve been pulling things out of drawers in the studio, (there is no shortage of UFOs there) and the winner just might be…
Looking back through my notes I think I started this in *Gulp* 2008 (possibly earlier) and of late I’ve had some new ideas for it.
Not least because I can’t even find my original Electric Quilt drawings for it. I suspect they were done way back on EQ5!, on the computer that died with out a backup. (Big Lesson learnt that day).
Because I love the fabrics in this quilt so much, it really would be a shame not to continue, and hey, one has recently been reproduced which is kinda handy LOL.
I’m pondering whether to take the baskets off and begin afresh from the star.
I’ve started drawing it up anew on EQ7 so will see where it takes me.
I’m going to carry on with that for the rest of the day.
