Have to start the blog off with some thing positive so will share this beautiful palm with the sun kissing it. With our beautiful blue sky behind it.
Plus Jennys Beautiful Quilt:-? This is Jenny Henry’s (from NZ) beautiful quilt called NZ Bridal Quilt, which is Jenny version of the Civil War Bride by Corlisse Searcy; it won first place for Traditional quilts at the Quilt symposium 2019 in Auckland last week.? Jenny added all animals, flowers, and birds you would find in NZ?
This week has been one of endless visits to specialist, Drs and Physio’s One I would like to forget.? SO very little sewing been done. More unpicking than any thing????
My brain has kicked into gear if nothing else has the last two days LOL
I had this lovely kimono fabric that I stacked and slashed?several years ago to show students how it was done. ? Then some time later finally made one lot up and showed you All, but never got much further as I was not happy with the way it was going? ? This is where I was up to??
Just was not happy where this was going too. Just did not excite me? You can see the original design top left hand corner, bottom left hand corner how I was going to make these slashed pieces up!!! ? Top right hand corner two sets sewn together to make in to blocks? ?Bottom right hand corner 5 or 7 sets to sew?
While sitting in bed yesterday my design brain started to tick, ?it meant unpicking all the sewing I had done on these pieces so yesterday and today Tuesday has been unpicking day?
I have unpicked ?all these pieces?
Trying to put the slashes back in order to the original lay out
Finally back in place but some have been cut shorter how will I solve that problem? Was thinking 1/4 circle but that will be too solid?
Now I have this Ta Dummmmmmmm!!!,!!
Who says YES??? Less is best???
I think I will make up blocks by doing iron on fussing and try invisible thread to machine applique the slates to the black back ground. ?I could end up with 9 blocks this way?
It was a great end to a endless day of unpicking?
A lovely HH slipped through the mail a couple of days ago, that I’m going to share all though I was not going to keep showing them, this one has to be shared as I’m sure many of you will use the lace that?Sue made on my HH??? ? Thank you so much for All those tiny stitches you did Sue, I love it and it arrived when I was having a blue day too!? ?I wrote Valerie instead of Sue,? so so sorry Sue I had you in my mind but wrote Valerie for some reason unknown??????? ?I’m talking about our dear Sue Taylor!!!!!
Look at that lovely soft blue lace?
But look up close? ? ?See NO lace but tiny stitches in back stitch to give the illusion?? of lace then the random Lazy Daisy stitches. How incrediably beautiful is that ???? Sue you have the patience of a Saint????
No photo’s of the garden I’m house bound to day, leg was very sore yesterday so have to behave to day no gardening????? or even wondering around the garden????
Thanks for dropping by. Cheers Glenda who is still sleeping 1/2 the days away!!!!! another 5 weeks and I should be up and running????
