A dithery day

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Today I had one of those days where life got in the way of creativity. When I finally did get a little time to myself to get started on the next quilting project, well wouldn’t you know, I was spoilt for choice and just couldn’t make up my mind….

I have got as far as knowing that I want to try out one of the Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co patterns that arrived last week and that I want to work only, or as only as possible, from fabrics in my stash.

I finally got it down to this selection… Summer Wind from Miss Rosie with Beach House fabrics from RJR and some of my own fabric thrown in too…

or this….. Winter White from Miss Rosie with fabrics from my own stash including a couple from Le Vouvray on the Left Bank in Paris (The turquoise fabric with the large flowers is one of theirs that I’ve been gazing at longingly for a long time. I think it’s time to make use of it!)

What do you think?

Maybe I should just start both and see where I end up.

On a happy note. Today I was picking up some fruit and veg and plants from the farm shop near my home, where I get almost all my fresh green produce. This was a sight that I’ve been waiting for. It means that spring is really here. Even the farmers think so. The selection of plants will now get bigger week by week. It makes it a joy to go shopping there!

Wishing you a beautiful spring wherever you are…

    Hi
    I love the look of the Summer Wind quilt – the fabric you have chosen looks so summery and fresh – Hope to see a picture when you finished it.
