Unfortunately, today I am not up to it. I am not up to much. I usually love days like this because I can turn the oven on and cook and bake til the cows come home, making the entire house smell sweet with lots of Fall's recipes. But not today. I just want to curl up on the sofa with a good book.
Anywho! Since I am in Blogland, I'll share what's on my wall with you.
The aqua pinwheels is the label for my RSC2015, which isn't quilted yet.
The framed 9-patch is an inspiration I got from Lynn Dykstra at Klein Meisje Quilts. She did a few quilts with blocks like: Shoo Fly, Pinwheels, Ship, Flying Geese. So I decided to make a 9-patch, my favourite. I did the block some time this past week but there was something wrong with it and I couldn't figure out what. So I went back to see Lynn's blog. Oh! yes! there it is. It is so obvious and yet I had forgotten about the values. So today I went back to the cutting board.
Ah! That's better. Much better, wouldn't you say? Since yellow is also the colour of the month, I sewed two more.
Yellow and orange. Yellow and hot pink. I don't have a lot of solids, but I have enough to make these simple blocks. I have to cut into the bigger scrap pieces to have enough for the frame. But scrap is scrap, right?
Then, I wanted to curl up on the sofa again with a flannel quilt, a good book and a herbal tea. My bones are really lazy today. Went to my library and picked up a book, grab a flannel quilt and read for a bit. I had nothing to keep my page when I was finish reading so I went down to the sewing. I pieced a little bookmark with some of Joyful Quilter's scraps. I dug out a piece fabric (that I am jealously hoarding) from Cécile, in France at Patchwork Inspirations so I will think of her too and a little something from my friend Pink. It is sewn unto a piece of flannel (which I really love to touch) in a string stitching manner. Some fancy stitches all around and that's it. Went back up and slid it in the book. Then we all headed out for dinner. :^D
That's all the fabrics fondling I did today. Hope tomorrow will be more productive.
Until next time ...
