Instead, some pics of craftiness that I have been working on this week. It would be really really nice to get a finished project in here, but this is what happens when doing too many things at once and being absolutely useless at time management.
A bit of sewing ends in on my crochet squares. I love crocheting, but I really don't like sewing those ends in. Sometimes it just makes me want to crochet in one colour.
Also a photo of the finished Laundry banner. As it is a gift and I don't have any hooks to hang it on, I had to improvise.
A certain teenage person is standing behind the shutters holding it in place.
You are probably getting sick of seeing wonky blocks, but here they are in all their glory on my improvised design wall. This seems to be working a whole lot better than these did.
My "design wall", if you can call it that, doesn't look aesthetically pleasing, especially the books sitting on top holding the flannel in place, but it works, sort of, and hasn't fallen down...yet!
(BTW the red feather boa is part of bitchypoo's artwork from last year, not one of my accessories.)
I've finished all the blocks now and starting the final round.
I have probably broken a cardinal rule in quilting, and have sewn the rows together as I go, rather than finish the final round on every block before sewing them together. I've completed the first two rows and have three more to go. I am finding it much easier to keep them in order.
A sneak peak
I am really really happy with the way this one is turning out. I've used Kona charcoal as the final round/sashing. It's looking a wee bit purplish in this photo.
