I am here briefly again.
As you will see - I have been watching Sharon Schamber videos on how to design a quilt.
I have been drawing at spaced intervals
...and wishing I could sew :(
However this will keep
I have just glued the 8 pieces together...and am REALLY ready to rest again!
This is my first whole-cloth design...I now have to work out how I am going to get it enlarged and printed.
I was fortunate to get some Kaleidoscope mirror's at a quilt shop in Albany...however they were not really big enough. So I ordered 2 12" mirrors and we taped them together...So I did one 45 degree corner and was able to see what it would look like before I stuck it together.
I am pleased with the result. The rest will keep.
One more very important thing is that we had special visitors at the weekend... Liz and Rus ... and yes - I did lie down lots.
Here is a photo of what Liz made for me...
6 Placemats...very special !!
Liz made the design on the fabric using 4 different sized lids and bleach. She has also machine quilted all the placemats. Liz will no doubt explain this when she gets to putting it on her web-site...and I have remembered to post her the photo's:)
We got Russ a Pizza 'hot plate' and a pizza recipe book to go with it...He is a great cook!!
I am now off to rest some more - listen to my book and do the 5th row of my POTC's - yes - I am nearly half way...needing to joining the 3rd and 4th rows...but doing it in a different order just for a change.
I will be away this time for a while.
Thank you for the comments on my last post...you are all wonderful :)
And I miss you all too.
