I Love Saturdays!

The reason? I can sleep in! You have no idea how much extra energy I can get from an extra 2 hours sleep!

Sweet Pea (DH) and I went for a drive into town to Spotlight (yes I know, but gee! They had a sale on bolt ends! I bought 24 meters of white homespun and 24 meters of black homespun for just over $200!). That should keep me happy with my paints and dyes for quite some time! The washing machine is working overtime. I was only going to buy a little bit of fabric but Sweet Pea (DH) just kept putting the bolts in my arms! I have a very special Sweet Pea (DH)!

We came home and did a bit of housework - this house is so small it only needs a little bit!!!   In an hour we vacuumed and dusted, washed the floors, planted cabbages and Asian greens and re potted the maiden hair fern!

Then I played in my sewing room!  My Poppy and Feather quilt is ready to sandwich!  Bugger!  My supply of batting is really sad.  I need to go batting shopping!  No batting the right size!  Grrr!  I've only got little bits left.  So what do I do?

I played with Shiva sticks and the rust dyed fabric I made last summer.


Three Poppies

And a Pear

Two more elements and I think I might have a new quilt happening!  I think Lindi might be right!  These quilts might be for sale some time soon!  Ta Lindi!

I look forward to seeing the pieces made into a larger piece as they are all lovely in their own right. As for batting, just but it together and oversew to make a larger piece.

Hiya Sally, I see there is a hint already for the batting, instead of oversewing though, join pieces by butting together and ironing a strip of iron on interfacing on to it, light interfacing works wonderfully and adds no extra bulk. This hint came from my professional quilter sister!! I use up all my strips and offcuts this way.
