I have been driving myself mad with all these knots! Knot after knot….Colonial knots :) Actually I love doing them and when Amanda Brook’s Breast of Friends block was in the Homespun magazine I immediately said …Yes I will do these and not replace it with appliqué.
Look at them all!!
I was supposed to use three strands of thread but didn't read the destructions properly and used two…so of course that meant more knots.
Oh well…I have finished it now and so its onto the rest of the block now and then I can put on the borders and get onto the rest of the blocks.
I want to get this BOM done as there is a new one to come out in Homespun in January...
I finally got from the mail man my parcel from USA with all my *hang on I got to get my bib* fabrics. I am drooling once again…I love getting parcels in the post even if it is if I bought it myself.
Wanna drool with me?
My DH (Dear Husband) asked me if I was going to make something out of these…But of course!! hehehe don't know when, but I will eventually make some delicious things. For now its just look and touch and enjoy.
I got some of them for my Dear Jane quilt I am doing…and must get back into doing some more blocks as its been awhile since I have sewn any.
I have done 20 blocks, so only 205 to go….Not many….Mmmm…
But I am beginning to get some lovely fabrics for it tho as I want to try to do it the same colours and theme as Jane Stickle.
Have you been over to Among the Gum Trees blog to see what my sweet Gumnut sister Vikki from Sew Useful Designs is having for the Freebie?? it’s so cute and you just gotta go over and have a look and download the pattern and make it.
Vikki is also having a giveaway on her blog with her two new deisgns…wow…they are awesome!
I hope you all are having a wonderful time sewing and doing your thing.
Hugs to all….Vicki
PS….I made our Christmas Cake today and it has heaps of fruit in it and Brandy!! Mmmmm….smells wonderful! I love this one as it will keep for over 2 months.
When it has cooled down I will take a photo of it for you all.
