We have luckily had no settling snow, unlike so many of you; but the miserable weather this week has certainly been very conducive to staying indoors.
I have cracked on with my Brit Bee quilt. I had an unscheduled day off on Thursday with dear son having a nasty looking itchy rash, which turned out not to be Shingles after a second Doctor's opinion; but with a late morning appointment, it really wasn't worth going to work afterwards, so the spiral quilting got finished.
Today I have started on the binding, and I am almost half way round already; if it isn't finished this evening, it definitely will be tomorrow, and I really really can't wait to show you.
Last night I played with my basted hexies. I had an idea the other weekend at the Brit Bee get-together, and so I decided to hone my low-to-high value layout...
In the poor night-time lighting, using the black & white filter was it was easiest way to sort them all into order...
|First try, just by sight, not too bad I reckon!|
|After a little re-jig.|
Once I had pretty much got them in the right order, I played with sorting the colours and came up with an almost there, on the left, and then final layout...
The hexies, as well as my Brit Bee quilt are both on my FAL list, so I only have a week to get them done, and I wouldn't mind getting my Orbit snuck in under the 1st April QAL deadline too. It's going to be a busy week.
So stay warm folks, unless you are in Sydney and experiencing record-breaking heat, in which case, be cool xxx
