|Amy Butler Cameo Giant Star quilt|
...that's how things have been around here.
Can you hear the geckos chirping?
In between lie-ins and siestas and when temperatures have allowed, there's been kantha style quilting which.i.love
I hand quilted the first two quilts I made, but had no idea about perle cotton back then and the beautiful texture this dense quilting makes.
There's also been some EPP and needlepoint - which is stitching by numbers...or colours, so uber relaxing.
But enough already, there is a conga line of quilt tops accumulating.
At the top of the line is my beautiful Modern Maples quilt made by my amazingly talented bee mates in Stitch Tease - basted and ready to be quilted.
Behind that and waiting for some backing fabric is my Beechwood Park and Low Volume Churndash quilt top made by another set of talented ladies in the Sew Euro Bee An bee.
...and there's at least a couple more tops and 2 sets of bee blocks waiting to be assembled.
Our summer hols were spent in England. If I hadn't lent my camera memory card to my mum and then forgotten my phone in England I would share more but here's a micro taste of our lovely lovely time.
So call me the comeback kid but consider this blog back. I'm reading and commenting again and yes, there might be a finish very soon (which in this corner of the blogosphere is within the next month...)
