this week I'm loving
oven roasted vegetables
big black cashmere hoodies
time to catch up with friends
ladies seen in paintings in billowy white dresses with enormous hair
all that adds up to not a lot of time in the sewing room
I've been working on a bag to give for Christmas ,
cutting some of the blue Liberty for my own quilt &
finishing the quilt top of the loony colour combo !
Queensland Art Gallery is showing an exhibition from the NY Met , my favourites were the portraits , lots of ladies as descibed above ...have a peek
This bag was an experiment ( read here no pattern ) & didn't quite live up to expectations but was salvageable & is already claimed by my sister . Lovely Amy Butler greys .
I am wanting a large carry all with some internal pockets & sturdy handles , still looking for a pattern if anyone has any clues .
Eventually I want to make a blue & white quilt for my own bed ... here are the beginnings
Here is the quilt top made from those blocks that took me quite far away from my usual colour choices ... I call it the loony colour combo .
I don't hate result though , it is growing on me .
I can feel a hot pink binding coming on .
that was the week that was .......
