So I am just about ready to have a good sewing session - maybe tomorrow. I have made a start on a new quilt and I want to get going on that.
Those little cracker blocks I made a week or two ago are being sewn into groups of 4 like this.
I then decided to add a bit extra.
Out of all the fabrics in my stash the one I wanted was the dark green and I only had half a metre of it. Tracked it down though and ordered another 2 metres which came yesterday so I am all ready to do some more.
A while ago I saw a lovely idea for some sashing. I think I saw it on Karens blog. It has been on my mind to try this out so that is what I am attempting on this quilt. I need lots more of these flying geese before it all comes together.
The paler fabric is the one I got from Ebay that I have been searching for for years. That is why I used the dark green - so it would go with the purple and lilac. Not sure how this will turn out. Your guess is as good as mine - lol !
Funny thing happened earlier in the week - not quilt related but kitty related. I have 3 cats - 2 of whom go out and about but the youngest one Tizer likes to stay in. The door can be open all day and he is just not interested in venturing out. Occasionally he steps into the garden for 10 minutes but that is enough. Anyway Tizer had a little mouse bed that had got a bit scruffy so was heading into the rubbish bin. I stuck it outside on a trailer we have and forgot about it. About 15 minutes later we heard that really strange mewing cats make - you know when they sound like babies crying ? Went outside to find this
A strange cat we have never seen before had taken a shine to the old mouse house and was making himself comfy much to Tizers outrage. Strange thing is Tizer and the intruder were almost identical in looks. Very similar markings etc. I had to shoo the stranger away eventually as Tizer was very annoyed. He was a lovely friendly cat though so I'm sure he'll be back. Tizer was very relieved when he'd gone and was cuddling up to us all day which is a bit unlike him. He normally doesn't go in for a lot of cuddles.
My 4 seasons quilt is ready to post - even has a label on which I am really bad at doing.
Roll on tomorrow - itching to give my machine a work out !!
