I feel like my arm has been cut off when I can't be crafty (so to speak!!). But I'm trying to fit in a little each couple of days, even if only 15mins or so. Don't know how effective this 'strategy' will be when report cards need writing....testing and reporting take up every waking moment...it's like writing 25 mini novels....but they're all factual so they have to be researched thoroughly....no mean feat doing it in 5 minutes!!!
So quilting tends to go out the window for a while...but I'm sure gonna try to find time or I'll go nuts!!!! ....and blogging...well, I revert back to being a bit of a lurker (sounds sordid, doesn't it!! lol I have horrible images of dark alleys whenever I say that!) and try and fit in as much bloggy time as I can.....I miss it, and you all, too much otherwise :o(
Now, I'm not one for Japanese styled fabrics, but I've always wanted to do a kaleidoscope quilt. Being time-poor for much of the year, I tend to budget my time as best I can, so when I saw a kaleidoscope quilt kit on Ebay for around $30....I snavelled it up....in fact, I snavelled up two!!! One in purple and one in teal.
Here are the purple blocks I've finished so far.....
I've completed the 12 blocks but as yet, haven't worked out how I'm going to set them....I like them on point but I've got to find the 'right' fabric to match....now that's the elusive part!!!
The teal ones are still in their pack....haven't got to them yet, so I'll have to share those with you later.
I've been preparing some fabrics for a bargello workshop I'm doing next weekend and, being one of those projects on my 'bucket list', I can't wait to start!!! Will share this with you tomorrow though as I've got a couple more things to do in preparation and then I'm going to bed........yaaaaaawn!!!! :>O Catching up with me already.
I've got so much to share but it's time for the blanket show!!
Nighty night and sweet sugary dreams!!
