Another week is starting which only means one thing - another week has flown by in a whir. So what have I been doing while this time has whizzed past me. One thing! Lollipop Trees. For any of you following the progress of this quilt you will be aware that I am running a little behind. I wish I had the ability to slow that whizzing time down so that I could achieve more in my day. I need a magic nose like Samantha that I can wiggle and……..ta dah! Reality hits so I dive into the Kaffe room in search of the perfect fabrics for the next block. Hi Ho, Hi Ho it’s off to work I go.
As a consumer I would have looked at this block of the month and thought $55.00 a month – love it - $55 a month – not sure - maybe. But now that I am choosing the fabrics for the blocks which takes me the better part of the day I realize that I would gladly pay $55.00 a month to have someone choose the fabrics and tell me exactly where to place them. I am very grateful though – all this work of choosing, tracing and preparing has me in a wonderful position when it comes time to sew the blocks. All I need do is find a matching thread and sew away…. surely that won’t be too hard.
So with no magic nose here are the next blocks in Lollipop Trees – ta dah!
We had a lovely visit today from mummy Moya (Majella’s mum). She brought in the centre of her Auntie Green that she has been hard at work on. It is really beautiful and Moya has nearly finished the applique in readiness for her next class.
If you are wondering how I am going on my vintage blue I have chosen the fabric for the outer leaves thankfully they are all out of the one fabric (that was enough of a challenge) and am currently sewing them down. When I have some more “roxanned” down I will post a photo to give you an update. No holding your breath – it definitely won’t be good for your health.
A short post tonight, but there will be more photos of Lollipop Trees tomorrow night – keep an eye out.
