I am rather excited to be starting my first FHFS ( Friends Having Fun Swap) after much angst deciding what to make. Yesterday I finally came home with these lovelies. They have been washed, dried and folded ready to iron and start creating.
Determined to keep up to date with BOMs this year, I have finished Val's first block before the next one comes out next week. See my sidebar for her BOM details.
I have been stitching several daylight hours and Ott light hours the past week just putting the first of many borders on my Insanity quilt. Whew! What a slog just to get round the 4 sides . I am now stitching the 2nd border on. Meanwhile I decided to start putting the cream fabric around all the rosettes I had prepared for one of the borders and found that I was a few short of the 64 required. So, with much scrounging and cursing I found some suitable fabrics in my stash and have cut and basted the hexies ready to make more pretty rosettes.
I am now off to hang the washing on the line so I can then embark on some creative magic.
I still can't find the settings to change this blog to the correct day. It looks like I shall forever be a day behind . Story of my life hehehe.
