Good afternoon...yes, that's right, I am actually posting in the afternoon....must be Sunday xx
You may remember that at the Regional day yesterday, the afternoon session was making an owl. It is a simple drunkards path pattern...with fabrics and placement to suggest an owl.
This one is NOT going to Sally in Australia ...it is staying in Crewe.... with my dad xx
I made a mistake when I was cutting out ... and did not have enough fabric to make another piece....so I sort of winged it ...and fudged! You may be wondering why he is going to my dad? Well..... my dad likes the wonky and not quite right! They have several "odd" Christmas ornaments that he has "found" over the years! He finds the ones left on the shelf after the "good" ones have been sold.... he usually gets them at a reduced price too!
One particular one is an owl ...called Eric... see where the name on the cushion comes from (my dad is Peter) I finished him off last night... I think I must have been influenced by the morning speaker (Elizabeth Wall) because I had a go at machine quilting!! Scary stuff xx
To day I made my block-of-the-month as well (see the side bar),
I liked this months MUCH more than last xx.... I can hardly believe we are already half way through
By the way.... I checked and next months colour is YELLOW, now there is a colour I use ...so, I should be able to post more pictures than I managed for VIOLET..xx..and the project is Easter..... so only a few more days of this migraine inducing background!! Thinking cap on as to what I am going to make xx
