A pretty quiet weekend here...cut out a skirt...tried to make a bib...busy rebirthing my last instalment of my BOM...felt it looked a little "flat" & lacking interest in comparison to the other blocks...it was fully done & then I changed the bias circles for ricrac...still not happy so I unpicked the whole thing(!)...spent LOTS of time playing...but I finally decided to go with a traditional block...all of the other blocks are traditional ones made with flair using pretty contemporary fabrics from Material Obsession.
Dresden Plates have always been a favourite of mine...and I thought the sawtooth tips reflected the triangles used in the other circular blocks...I was going to segment the "spokes", but it looked too busy....I am still deciding if the centre fabric is the "right" one.What do you think? I even got around to laying all the blocks out on the floor...it has been a challenge at times, but I love the way that making it has given me the confidence to say...that block is nice, but not me, and change it to a block I prefer. Fun, fun, fun! Just some applique to do on some sashing strips & then for the final construction phase...so many strips...but it will look great! MO are about to do this BOM again...better be quick to get in this time!
DD has been working away steadily on her purchases at Darling Harbour. She has just finished her scarf...from Prints Charming...looks great...and is now trimming a pashmina with Liberty.
Frosty here this morning...
