About piecing and quilting and the life that happens around them
Friday, 30 October 2009
Today I gave myself a treat and went and traced the first block of Rosalie Quinlan's 'Love is.......' stitchery quilt. I have had this for quite a while and as I'm without any redwork to stitch, that I should start. This is my first of Rosalie's design that I have done, unfortunatley it is not the only pattern of hers that I have bought. There are many others, and I'll leave that topic there.
On another note pertaining to redwork, I have tried to stitch in many colours. You know what I mean, where the petals are pink and the leaves are green and the sky is blue and I have difficulty finishing the blocks. Yeah it's called embroidery. The simplicity of one colour stitchery is hypnotic for me and very meditative. I am almost salivating thinking of just sewing with one colour. Another threadwork that I love and haven't done since my Mum died, as there is no place in my house for it (YET), is hardanger. Different weights of thread, all the same colour though.
I hope they fix the spell check in Bugger Blogger soon. All my mistakes are coming through. Like the score through - knew that would come in handy.
