I admit it, I am the Queen of Procrastination. It has been forever since I felt like adding anything to my blog, despite several of my internet buddies requesting an update.
However, this morning Judy Grant from Michigan asked me ever so sweetly to put some new pictures and words onto my blog and it has spurred me into action.
This past few months has been about getting the craft studio painted and then making curtains for several rooms here. I would adore to be able to just buy new curtains, but when I look at the cost I revert back to ‘homemade’. And I have to say I love to use quilting fabrics for my curtains.
I have just made some curtains from white Kona cotton for the craft studio and that fabric was a dream to sew. I wanted something really light and airy that wouldn’t cut down too much on light, but which I could draw in winter to keep the warm inside. So behind the Kona cotton I put triple phase lining…I’m sure that will do the job.
Did I show you piccies of the craft studio after painting? I can’t remember, so here are a couple for you to see. My end is still in a mess here…it looks a little better now, but not a lot.
Whereas Rhyll is Mrs Neat and everything is totally organised and looking gorgeous. She didn’t get that trait from me!
So apart from boring old curtains, I’ve been sewing a block of this project, then a block from another project…never actually completing anything. But I guess one day all the various things I’m working on will come together.
I’m making a baby quilt for Rhyll’s friends in Canberra. I know how cold it can be Canberra, so this is a little flannel quilt to keep the baby nice and cosy.
I am working on my first block of Civil War Bride…I adore this quilt.
I’ve done a couple more blocks of Sue Ross’s BOM
And there is my second block of the Kim McLean quilt I’m making using Kaffe fabrics
Rhyll makes all sorts of wonderful things in her craft cubby…but this is one I particularly love..she’s such a clever girl.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little show and tell. I’ve enjoyed getting back into the swing of things on my blog and will try to update regularly.
