It was sunny today, all day, so when I got home from work, I was straight out in the garden, across the boggy marshland that used to be the lawn, and hanging quilts from the trees!!
After last night's teaser, I thought you might like to see my Brit Bee Diamond Nips in their full glory...
The remaining 3 blocks will be on the reverse along with the siggy block, and side two already looks great in my head!
Thank you for the tips on my embroidery. I had to rinse off the marker pen from the siggy block, so I did it with hot water and there was no ill-effect whatsoever, so I think I will dive in with Sadie's suggestion, I have some light-weight woven interfacing that will be perfect.
I have worked out that I only have enough batting for one quilt though, (boo),
so I will be ordering some more tonight, getting side two
sorted tomorrow, and then cracking on with my Orbit before the joys of another Year 3 recorder recital; my ears already hurt at the thought.
In the meantime, did you see Lindsey's Having a Starry Time contribution, or Carolyn's Sizzix-cut Spring Wreath? No-one is doing anything to allay my fears that I have been invited on these hops in error!
