The last bank holiday weekend before Christmas and beautiful weather. I worked on a Bee (a little bit) Japanese bee block yesterday- theme of "Wonky Town" and finished it this morning before 10. I played with the fabrics first, what goes with what- they are pretty small pieces so I needed to be careful
drew out a design, added some extra fabric
I use photo mount squares- double sided stickies to hold the paper whilst I rotary cut these out with seam allowances
I look at this point and have a few doubts- too late. It stitched up OK, I added a bird although it looks like the house has two chimneys! Hmm...
On the second block there will be a lot of veggie garden, a self sufficient house as there is lots of solid green left. I like the house bit in the middle, unsure about the rest.
I needed sea today. We are less than 30mins from a lovely pebbly beach, even on bank holidays it is quiet and the colours are very calming.
Can you spot a small dog's nose in this pic?
Despite the warmth, Lottie did not settle the whole time, she wants a constant game of fetch the stone- we throw one, she brings it or a completely different one back; repeat
You can see the crazed look in her eyes!
Enjoy the late summer sun x
