I have, surprise surprise, been working on Swan Lake only this time I thought I would have a play with the centre of the quilt.
Of course, Maximus is always there to lend a hand, even when I am quite capable of working by myself.
Here is a glimpse of the centre to give you a bit of an idea of how the quilt will look. There is still more to place in the centre and lots of star flowers down each diagonal border.
I have also been fabric shopping, just love the new blacks and blues.
I have finished appliqueing the 2 latest blocks for Browne Sisters Sampler - lucky because I have just received the pattern for the next block.
And this is my new/old chair. I wish I had taken a photo of it before I started. Imagine 30 years ago, a pine kitchen table and 6 chairs covered in lime green vinyl, very fashionable back then. This is the only piece left and whilst still quite sturdy, it looked hideous. It has turned out ok don't you think.
I have been reading everyone's posts, just not doing a lot of commenting this week. I don't know what is going on with Blogger but My Blog List doesn't update for a couple of days and then bang, there are heaps of new posts to read.
I am getting very excited! Only 6 more sleeps till Jan and I get to spend the day with Sue Spargo!!!! We are off to Amitie Textiles in Melbourne early on Sunday morning and I can't wait. I'll be there, wearing my Sue Spargo threadcutter that was a special gift, my Sue Spargo necklace and my Sue Spargo earrings with my camera at the ready. Do you think I may be going a little over the top???
