The school year is coming to an end soon, so I've been preparing some hand work tor those times sitting waiting to pick-up kids from friends houses, from the pool, etc.
Since I finally succumbed to the Vignette mystery, I've been tracing out the stitchery border patterns. Hours of waiting time there!
This is the current disaster on my sewing table. Not a bad disaster, just a big mess as I cut and piece 1/4 square triangles into cute little hourglass blocks. These little beauties are 2 1/2" square at the moment.
These little blocks are step 1 in Bonnie K Hunter's new mystery "Orca Bay".
The icing on the cake this week was winning a giveaway on Lurline's blog Lurline's Place. How gorgeous are those fabrics? I've love Aneela Hoey's fabrics for ages, so the layer cake of Sherbet Pips is wonderful. The charm pack of Meadow Friends is bright and cheery, and a fabulous Melanie Hurlston pattern was also included. Then there were the little bonus extras. Sooo happy. I'm a real sucker for a luscious hand made cake of soap!
Ideas for the fabric are already swirling around my head!
