I am in applique mood, and right now I am in the mood for more summer colours than the red and white you have been seeing lately.
We are not having much summer, so the light, bright colours are nice to work with.
I guess my brain is not tuned in to doing a project starting with block 1 and ending with block 20-something.
I have recently come to the conclusion that I am a mess when it comes to follow a very strict A-Z quilting plan, and I am hereby confessing in public.
I decided to give this project some full days attention, and it is paying off.
I now have a lot of finished appliqued blocks - the 3 blocks below lacking stitchery.
Not long ago I asked Chookyblue, who is the hostess of the SKoW online BOM, if it is ok to do the blocks bingo style instead of in numeric order, so now I can post without feeling like a mess.
That put the joy back in the project again - thanks a lot Chookyblue :-)
Looking through my project box I find that 4 out of 5 projects are applique and stitchery combined, in one way or the other - the same 4 projects are also of Australian design…..
The last project is my own design.
Do not worry - I do have more projects than this - these are on my current short list - the others are put away for now.
Christmas in August :-)
The postman brought a packet from Melanie for participating in Scandinavian Christmas online BOM.
Thank you very much Melanie!
I am not done with the BOM - but I do still enjoy the process, and the quilt will decorate my home for Christmas - that I can promise :-)
I love gingerbread cookies - my favourite Christmas cookie - and these were home made and very tasty with my afternoon coffee.
The cute coaster is pinned to the wall in my quilt corner to remind me not to forget that SC quilt will be done this year :-)
I will enjoy the hot chocolate one of these cold, rainy summer days, while working on the blocks.
A creative mess is better than tidy idleness -
