After about 5 years of languishing in the UFO box and getting the occasional airing, the crazy blocks for my quilt "My Crazy Life - so far" are finished and ready to be put together.
The wattle which is in flower around the countryside right now, and our flowering peach tree which is in bud and will look magnificent in the coming weeks.
Our dove cote which, in reality, is looking a little worse for wear right now, but I have done a 'before' version here. The fan is there because - well just because. It actually breaks up a rather large piece of the white fabric.
The heart of our home. The edging of the heart is done in what Robyn Ginn calls the 'row of roses' stitch. It starts with a cable stitch and the rest of it is too hard to explain here. I think it is often referred to as 'oyster stitch'.
On this part of the block, I have done my interpretation of the Toowoomba violet. Satin stitch is not usually my favourite, but I was happy with how this turned out and won't be so scared to try it again now. We have a lot of the white daisy in our garden and in spring and summer it is just like a white carpet. Very pretty.
