Hello to my dear readers...are you still there?
I do know where January went, it was swallowed up with school holidays and everything that they come with....the beach (such a great afternoon), bowling with friends and the movies (Frozen). This week school started again and my youngest started prep, he is enjoying it but comes home tired and it is kind of meltdown central for a bit. I'm sure things will calm down as the new routine is gotten used to. My oldest is now in Grade 3 and seems to be settling in ok, he loves checking in on his little bro at lunch time.
|Midnight at the Oasis - Churn Dash block|
So what have I been doing creatively? I have been steadily working away at the Midnight at the Oasis quilt and hopefully will be able to share a pic of the finished appliqué border very soon. I did a tiny bit on the double wedding ring quilt, not much to take a picture of yet though.
On the weekend I went to my local patchwork shop and did a class that included a kit with the fabric, so although I am doing the fabric diet I am not counting this because I paid the deposit back in early December.
We started with the batik fabric that is dyed in Bali. Then the cutting began!
It is actually a really simple quilt to make. Basically it is a cheater bargello pattern.
I finished the top the next day with sashing and the final border. It is a really good single bed size quilt, maybe verging into double bed territory even. So, now I just need to get some backing fabric. I am thinking about selling this one when it is finished so if you know someone who likes this look send them my way!
Speaking of "Fabriholics Anonymous" - other than the above fabric I only made one other fabric purchase this month and that was to add to my little collection for the commission quilt I plan to start soon.
Now that I have this Blogsy app you might hear from me a bit more often as it is a lot quicker than turning on my laptop and sorting out photos from different devices.
I think that's about it for now!
