New Projects and a new Magazine- Piecework
Good Morning Ladies and Gents, Them or They!
Its been hot as blazes in Duncan, B.C. this past couple of weeks, we went from spring time cloudy days of 22-25 degrees to 32 to 35 and not a cloud anywhere!
Enough on the weather. I wanted to catch you all up on more projects that I've been up to in my stitching life. I don't know about you, but this self isolation has not been tough. I like being on my own, stitching away, chatting on IS and sorting through projects way too long to talk about that are still not finished.
But County Claire blocks are busy evening blocks, getting these done so I can place them into quilt for my sister.Of course, she doesn't know this and we won't tell her, will we??
As you can see, I'm really out on a limb of getting creative using up what I have in my stash.
I do have an overall GOLD color that is the general directions for her new quilt.
And I highly recommend this new magazine cause its cool! Upcycling is becoming mainstream.
Due to the self isolation we are all doing right now, I rarely pick up a magazine outside my home. But I did notice this one at the Save On Foods check out. What a strange place for me to see it?
But look at the contents listing. I have enjoyed a cuppa and read some of this magazine, but what struck me was the cultural fusion of stitchery's from around the world. Little known artists who make culturally sensitive stitcheries.
I am onto several quilts for my family members, trying to check off one quilt to at least all my family. This one is the known so far as the purple quilt.
Its going to Meg.
And green fabric is coming along for a quilt for Chris.
Using up scraps and green fabric as wantingly as seventeenth century bar maid with too much work on her hands is the joy of this quilt as you go quilt.
And this quilt will get an infusion of purple and blue today with another border I've been working on. This is amber and Gary's quilt. I've pulled and assembling color ways for three other quilts too. I'm on a thing!
So hoping my readers are staying well. I pray for and send healthy wishes to all my followers in the USA and wish only the best outcomes for your fight against the COVID 19 Pandemic.
We are so blessed to have Dr, Bonnie Henry at the helm here in B.C.
May the Force be with you!
Happy stitching and thank you for all the kind comments! I love to read them, respond and visit your blog too.
Take care, stay safe,
