Today is my day. It’s all been a bit of a stretch. We had my son’s confirmation today with all the ensuing hullabaloo and last night when I should have been sewing my EPP I was actually on the garage floor wrestling with the wheels on my car and putting the winter snow wheels on because a bilzzard had hit and we had 6 inches of snow and my husband was just out of the hospital after surgery, so it was left to my 13 year old and I. So there’s a little less to show you than I had hoped…but hey ho…sometimes life just gets in the way. It happens to the best of us from time to time, right?
I finally chose the sunrise palette – it was the one most of you preferred this week and well, when it came down to it I just liked the colours better.
So here it is….the view from my window on an autumn morning last week – looking out towards the Zurich Oberland and I guess eventually Lake Constance and Germany!
Using this palette I pulled out these fabrics – realizing as I did so that I’m really not a brown person and the burgundy/browny shade was seriously lacking in my giant stash!
The EPP pattern I chose was really simple – 60 degree diamonds put together to make 6-pointed stars. One day when I have time (wonder when that will be!) I’m going to make this in Liberty tana lawn. I discovered that I can manage to be seriously inaccurate when cutting out the paper pieces. I now see why people buy pre-cut papers – it’s a seriously good idea!
So far I only have one block done, but who knows what I might manage this evening infront of the TV! I love this block though – it’s simple but I have a thing about stars and it goes together pretty quickly. It’s one of those cold winter night infront of a log fire blocks….
