...so I have changed the arrangement of the borders, and have decided to add more appliqué
I am adding a few small bits and pieces here and there....my favourite part! I have drawn up 14 or so images to go in an outer border....
....still some stitching to do!
The centre of the quilt is almost complete....now it is time to decide where to go next....decisions decisions....oh how I swing about on that fence! Wish me luck with my decision making...or lack thereof! ;-) Anni
...well, not new exactly, as I was working on this when my new line of fabrics arrived on my doorstep. I did my usual and started something else with the new fabrics, just so I could try and juggle 6 projects at once...oops....so, here is the start of what I was working on BEFORE my 'For a Girl, For a Boy' range arrived... ..and some piecing... ...I am creating something a little whimsical and a little soft with a little applique, piecing and stitchery. I'll have more to show soon Until then Anni
Look at what I just received in the mail!! Nothing like the bills and boring bits AT ALL!! Now my fingers are really itching to stitch... My new range named About a Boy, About a Girl. It was originally going to be all about Boys, but Henry Glass (with whom I design fabrics) wanted to see the girl side as well, so I ended up creating both! The Henry Glass contingent have sent me samples to create with....just enough to go CRAZY heheh....
This range is due to be released in late October/November, so keep an eye out! Hopefully I will have a few new patterns....there are already a few free ones on the Henry Glass Fabrics website.
Yes, it has been a while to say the least. I sorta fell off the face of the earth there for awhile didn't I?
Life has been a little crazy since last I posted. Life sometimes throws something out there that affects what can be achieved, and for me, that happened a couple of months ago.
My son has been living with epilepsy all of his life, and a couple of years ago we went through the gruelling decision to undertake brain surgery. This all went well, but was not totally successful. Half way through July this year, we had an amazing bout of seizures which the medical staff just couldn't control. After a month of being in hospital they finally found a concoction that prevented the seizures, but has made him very foggy. Because of this, he has been at home rather than school, and I have been spending more time with him, rather than with you ....ooops!!
Hopefully life will start to feel a little more 'normal' soon ;-)
Thanks to all who have been asking for my whereabouts, and so sorry for my sever lack of communication, especially since I was going to do my reveal as soon as I came home from the Craft & Quilt Fair at Glebe Island, Sydney (which by-the-way was fabbo....loved the new venue with all the light!)...here is a quick snapshot of that grand adventure...
....now for the reveal of my latest releases... Town & Country Quilt....using flannel and some woven wool applique. Very easy, and my son loves it!
The Happy Elephant....This one makes me smile... a fun one great for a wall hanging or a cushion, or even as the beginning of a quilt.
I will try that little bit harder to keep in touch...I have a few bits and pieces I have been working on, so more on that soon!
I am off to the Craft & Quilt Fair in Sydney, and have been working hard on some new patterns....I am not going to show you the whole project just yet...hopefully you will come and see them for yourself on my stand!!
Here is one...a flannel quilt with woven wool applique....
...and here is another....the polar opposite using brighter happy fabrics... I will have a few other new things to show you, so keep your eyes open!
Hopefully I will see you in Sydney - otherwise, I'll do the full reveal soon
