After a pretty quiet but creative weekend I think i may count as ready for the week. Bread is baked, as well as apple cake two. The fridge is stocked, and I worked on several projects. I also risked setting up my daylight lamp again. I put it away when the puppy arrived to stop him playing with the lead. Now I am more concerned he will knock it flying. Its very light weight and he is kinda robust. Brushing against it may be enough. I guess we will see, at least isn’t an expensive one and it does help with some of my crafts. Good lighting is one of the best things you can have to help crafts of all kinds. No, I don’t sell it, I just love good lighting. One of the projects I progressed was this quilt. I have one of the massive outer borders ready to go on, and another very close, Now I think it is time for this weeks challenge. This weeks technique is,
Birds and bees
Oooh, this one is fun. I realised there were a huge number of traditional blocks based on these, and many quilter use embellishments and applique of them too. I will be very interested to see what people come up with for this one. I think I will need to start hunting out the blocks I found before. What space do we have to play with,
Add a total of 6″ to two opposite sides of your quilt
Tricky, some of the blocks I fancied are huge, mind you I do know there aren’t any 18″ borders in this so I shouldn’t be surprised. I will just have to pick some of the simpler blocks.
