Finishing up the year with a custom Quilt seems just right. It was gifted to the clients dear friend for a special birthday gift. The Coral and Aqua fabrics have all come from my stash.
And how could I go past this binding - "A Day in the Country" - do amazing stripes - always perfect for binding.
In-between finishing up orders, working on publication and media commissions and sewing Santa Sacks I have been working on two projects that I had started earlier this year.
I have been wanting to get back to my crochet Granny Square Bobble Blanket for ages and having finished up other projects I was working on (namely Green Tea and Sweet Beans) I have put it at the top of my list and I now have some nice little piles of Granny Squares. Now to just sew in the ends before it all becomes too much at the end. I prefer to sew in the ends as I go - how about you?
Also back to working on my Tula Pink Hexes - I decided to turn these Parisville Kits into Grandmothers Flower Gardens. Look I am not going to kid myself - English Paper Piecing takes time so this make take another whole year to complete the design I have in mind. I love English Paper Piecing as I take it along with me for the times I have to wait - like while the girls have Swimming Squad, or waiting at doctors appointments or for when we travel long distances in the car.
70 Grandmothers Flower Garden Hexes all finished
In the kits also came with the Aurifil thread - both perfectly matched colours for basting and sewing together - #4060 (Silver Moon) and #4660 (Pink Taffy) The 50wt is just perfect for sewing them together.
