Yesterday the Brisbane area bloggers met up at Garden City. Maree found a fantastic venue for us to spend the day. There were 12 ladies and a lot of fun show and tell and stitching happened. I am happy to show that I finished my WISP by Bareroots at last!
I found the perfect place to hang it up.
I knew I would finish sewing the binding at the bloggy meeting, so I took along new project to start.
This is one of the projects from "Let's Get Stitched" in Adelaide by sweet Vicki of Pickledish Patch. She is working on the other days of the week. Here is "Monday is Washing Day".
Marilyn has already finished hers and has a nice picture on her blog. It's prettier in person!!
Susan brought her finished Sew Laugh Love stitchery. It is absolutely gorgeous...have a look over at her place.
Maree brought a large bag of scraps that she no longer wanted. What was left came home with me.
There are some gorgeous fabrics in there. I am so lucky!!
Last week when I made the "whole fat quarter" larger size fabric box to put my precuts in, I found a jelly roll I had sort of forgotten about. This particular one had 35 2.5 " strips. First, I cut each strip in half, then sewed all the strips in pairs. No two pairs are alike though.
It is a blue and brown jelly roll made up by a quilt shop, so not any one fabric collection.
They are all still in pairs. Next, I will cut them all to 5" squares. Loving the colours!
I also chose some fabric pairs for another project. These are all first quality quilting fabric, just not my first choice of colours to keep for myself .
My iron got quite a workout today with all those strips and f/q's! I am feeling Sew Inspired! from that lovely day. xx debbie
