sky blue

This is the sky here today 
Our winter skies are always clearer , summer tends to be  a hazy shade 
I love these clear azure skies 

I open the door of my sewing room so that I can see some of that blue while I continue to sew my zig zag quilt. All the blocks are sewn now ( 840 of them ) Lots more trimming to do though.
Here are some of my favourite combinations .

Kaffe Fassett Jade shot cotton / green ikat wash

Lime shot cotton / red ikat wash

scarlet shot cotton / blue ikat wash

I am planning to make Dotty for Dresden from Material Obsession 1 , these zingy orange dots will be used instead of the red in the original . Can't wait to get started .
I have also joined up in another quilt along ( even though my last quilt along is not yet complete ). 
This one one looks so much fun .
Kaleidoscope blocks by SugarStiches . I am going to make mine  scrappy .
Jennifer is also having a giveaway of Heather Ross Far Far Away II
Go have a peek you might like to join in . 

Off now to start that Australian fav ... Roast Lamb .YUM

Love the shot cottons and ikats. Note to self: Must stop shopping.

Oh, and I agree with you about the winter skies. The light is just gorgeous at the moment.
