Having been told by a 4 year old that if I stare at my laptop too long I'll get square eyes, I got on with some real-life stuff to make amends.
The Brit Quilt Swap 'sandwich' has been basted together - the decision about binding in pink (pomegranate) or teal (jade) thrown to the flickr masses to be met with a split response, so I am none the wiser at present - so more playing tomorrow before I get on with the quilting and binding. Last chance partner to convince me to go in your preferred direction!
I then got to work on that lovely pink fabric I received the other morning.
The eagle-eyed of you might have seen the button I added for a Rainbow Charm Swap, organised by super talented Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts. 28 of us will cut a yard of fabric into 56 5" charms in a specified colour, return them to Jennifer who will divide them all out and return us all a rainbow of beautiful fabrics!
I chose the scrummy Yosemite from Jenean Morrison's California Dreamin' line, and it's lovely. As I bought a metre, I have a nice piece left over for playing with too.
As the sun was shining yesterday, I put a rug in the dappled shade of the crab-apple tree and thumbed my way through my library books - not very inspiring I'm afraid, but I found some good practical advice in the embroidery book.
And if the lap-top won't do it, the TV will - did you see Dr Who? Whoo-hoo I guessed!
