The seams sewn, the seams pressed open, the threads trimmed,and the times you cut blocks to the right size?
I read Carole’s post on Autumn Jubilee, you can read about it HERE
and thought this would be something easy for me to attempt. 24 blocks, and I have lots of batik strips, so off I went and started to find suitable fabrics. Easy, well some parts were, but doable in the allotted time, finished today, as the next instalment arrives tomorrow, NZ time!!!
I sorted, cut, pressed, and did so many HST. Then the plain squares, and the ones with a wee strip for a stem. Purples, naturally, blues, greens, and all shades of oranges and tans.
Gradually things all came together, Boris wanted to put in his opinion, and ventured across the small design board.
Sitting, waiting for that morning coffee.The morning light was not bright, a faint glimmer of sunshine helped.
The sun is rising so much further to the East, and we get those shadows on a different part of the lawn. I know there is a huge amount of work to mow the lawns, fell the trees,split the wood, but in reality we live in a beautiful place.
Quotation of the day , for my friends further North
the time when nature colours the leaves with
red, gold and orange,
showing that a leaf can be as beautiful
as any flower”
