Where are the days going? I am so wrapped up and busy with this foundation course I completely loose track of time. My poor little blog is so neglected, bless but it is because I have not done any sewing since the sewing day last Saturday when i made Lucas Rabbit. However, on Thursday in college we had a felt making session, finally something creative I could blog about. I managed to make several small pieces of felt in class then took them home and let them dry over night. The following evening i was so excited because with my felt i could try out a very special foot a very very very generous lady gave me for my Bernina. (You know who you are x) With felting embellishing foot attached of I went. it took me two broken needles and a little bit of time but eventually I was off and running. The latest project is titled Flora, fauna, fish, fur, feather and fowl, hence the felting flowers and the fish. I wanted to add a bit of bling to my gold fish so I sewed some sequins and beads to him.

Last Wednesday at our fortnightly meeting of Liverbirds our wonderful Janet revealed this years quilt design. I feel like it has been a life time since I made a quilt so I jumped at the chance to buy the pattern. When I got home I looked at the fabric requirements and decided that this quilt really needed to be made completely from my stash. One of Janet's top tips is that you start with a feature fabric and use this fabric as you colour wheel. I myself find this most helpful when selecting fabrics for any new project. I must admit I did struggle finding a feature fabric from my stash as I would normally buy this particular fabric new and then raid my stash to add to it. After much searching I settled on a beige fabric that has tiny tulips on it in red, blue, yellow and green. The picture is of all the fabrics I have chosen for the new quilt.
