So yesterday was cold but sunny and my little pot of hope started to flower...
there is a little more light in the day. This week I have been working on Swoon block 2 and I went for spring colours, fresh light prints. I used a mix of Amy Butler Soul Blossom voiles and Anna Maria Horner Little Folks. The cream is Kona Snow.
I also bought a big A2 industrial cutting mat from Creative Grids. I was a little nervous buying this online, I had one very badly mailed in the past but this one arrived well packaged and is excellent quality! I also ordered the mini ruler you can see in the pic above, perfect for adding 1/4 seam to little pieces when freezer paper piecing. I cannot recommend Creative Grids rulers more highly, they grip the fabric so reduce slippage when you cut, easily my favourite rulers.
Today, there is no sun just rain and cold but even late in the afternoon it is light enough to take photos . Swoon is a bit of a palette cleanser for me, all I have to do is systematically follow instructions, arrange pieces into piles, chain pieces and make assembly lines. It all fits together like magic
Half term next week so a week off work, time for us all to get over colds, coughs and laze around. And whilst lazing, finish a quilt for my sister, make a dress for a wedding invitation and make a few bee blocks, plus a few other things to design and plan.
Enjoy your weekend!
