Its the middle of September, like ALREADY!
Where does the time go?Ive been keeping busy with a gorgeous girl turning 6, She LOVED her twirly patchwork dress by the way... ( some people think im cruel by traumatising my children and making them wear bed covers! - but they just dont get it!) We were also lucky enough to go camping out in Arnhem Land for a few days ...man it was so HOT!
We camped on the beach and went fishing...
Looked for hermit crabs...
and made little shell houses for them...
And collected shells and made necklaces and chimes... It was our first camping trip as a family , I was a bit dubious about it
but even though it was unbearably hot we had a lot of fun
Cant wait to go camping again!
on the kaleidoscope quilt ...
Like most things I do, I start out all gung ho and lose momentum half way...
Truth be told i wasnt really loving the look of these blocks and thought my color selection
was a bit off but when I started sewing them together and
looking at it on the whole I think its not too bad...
what do you think?
Can you see the circles forming ? Ive learnt quite a bit making this quilt in
particular about color value which I had no clue about but I would really love
to learn more about color relationships etc ...
where can you learn about that sort of stuff without
doing an art degree?
Its Dream On by Moda , a set of fat quarters, they are so lovely!
They are prints taken from vintage sheets in gorgeous colors
and yes they will most likely become another quilt!
....I would like to finish the kaleidoscope before I start another one... hmmm Ive also been working on my latest crochet project,
cant wait to show you this
so stay tuned...
Hope everything is good in your world,
take care x
