All quiet here

After the hectic month before, very little sewing has been done over the past month.  Some nice fabrics bought though, including some local ones from African Sky!

Today the fabric requirements for Bonnie Hunter's new year-end mystery "Celtic Solstice" were revealed.  Interesting colour combination!  We have to wait until 29 Nov to get the first cutting instruction!  And I have to choose between making it 75” X 75” or 111” X 111”.   The neutrals may be a problem as my buying has shied away from light fabrics, and most of those that I do have are very plain!   I really don't want to buy more fabrics,  I do want to use as much of what I already have!

As soon as I have caught up on non-quilting things, my sewing machine will be busy!   I think I will use the 29 Nov as a deadline for those non-quilty things.

My Mum wants to see the quilting frame in action - think I need to plan this for December!

So go sew!

  1. Hi, Karen: I'm planning on doing Bonnie's mystery as well, but my deliemna is that I have used up all my neutrals doing her last two mysteries. I plan on buying the background fabric as one piece, then using batiks for the colours. Good luck to you!


Thank-you for visiting. Are you a quilter?
