I have been feeling a little overwhelmed this week by the tasks that I have taken on. Two major quilts, Phebe and Swan Lake, Browne Sisters Sampler quilt, and of course I have my beautiful Klosjes and my other fill-in project, Yo Yo's. A plan for some time management was needed and last night I spent the evening cutting out hexagons and spools. This morning was devoted to Phebe.
Phebe is proving to be quite a challenge for me to get started BUT now I think I have had a major breakthrough. I finally got the centre urn looking how I wanted it to. I have had this piece of Yuwa fabric for quite a while, saving it for something special, and I think you will agree, it is perfect. The photo does not do it justice.
I have made a start on the 2nd instalment of the Browne Sisters Sampler and I am enjoying the applique. The Autumn weather is beautiful here at the moment, top of 30 C but cool in the morning and evening. I think I might spend some time this afternoon outside sewing hexagons and now that I am a little bit more organised, I feel an overwhelming sense of PEACE (that is until I can't decide on the next "perfect piece" of applique fabric or run out of hexagons to stitch!).
This is Michelle's Positive/Negative 9 Patch. Doesn't it look wonderful! We have basically used the same fabrics and Michelle's looks totally different to mine with the lighter, fresher background fabric. Michelle has made her quilt to fit her huge dining room table. It looks fantastic Michelle!!!
