new skills required



I just love the excitement of a new project

I have spent the last few days cutting out the pieces for this quilt

It will be an orange version of Dotty for Dresden 

found in the book Material Obsession 1





green orange pink aqua & blue for the blades



orange centres for theses blocks chosen by Tess




little piles of petals 

I now need to perfect the applique technique 






the days here are sunny & clear 
this is the view from my kitchen sink 


made prettier by my 2 sisters 
roses from Robyn & ceramic birdy from Pam 
apologies for the dark picture  it was late afternoon




I am quite lucky in the sister department
