Lets hopethat 2021 will be a much better year for us all.
Its been a quiet Christmas period here with plenty of sewing, some reading and of course lots of TV.
I finished the Anni Downes block which you can see in my previous post and I have been slowly working my way around the Irish Chain border on my Red Manor House quilt. Its slow going but I am almost halfway now and itching to get on to the next border.
However, the big news is that I have finished the applique on my scrappy basket tablecloth and it is now ready to be layered up for quilting - I just need to find the right backing fabric.
Not brilliant pictures but the weather is not conducive to fancy outdoor shoots! The colours of the applique batiks is not zinging as much as it does in real life.
I have also been working in my sketchbooks and the recent purchase of a Gelli plate means that there is going to be lots of mono printing going on for a while. Hopefully some pictures soon.
Yesterday it was good to catch up with Chookyblue and friends for an hour or so via Zoom - lovely to see faces new and not so new. I managed to pull out a few hexies to baste while chatting and good to see what others were working on.
So I wish you all the very best for the coming year and look forward to seeing lots of lovely new projects around blogland!
