Well, we are sort of getting used to the snow. Apart from the obvious inconveniences that people are facing, I still quite like the snow! I know some people are experiencing difficulties with getting along with daily lives, but I have to confess that we are lucky in where we live as I can walk to most places, and I can work from home. So apart from the feeding (constantly) and entertaining of my son, and trying to encourage a bit of home study (as the school suggested!), I have sewn. A Lot.And ordered fabric. And ordered a book.
The book was the new one by Keiko Goke, and as Amy suggested I got it from Yes Asia, which worked very quickly. So I am being inspired by Keiko’s beautiful work each night as I read it in bed! (And I ordered some of her fabric from Glorious Colour which is on its way, but I see she has a second line out now, so I need to keep my eyes open for that too!)
I finished putting this quilt together:
I miss calculated the number of hexagons that I needed for the size of quilt I wanted to make, (by about 100! Wah!!) So I figured turning one into a pincushion wouldn’t hurt:
And I quite liked the look of the quilt, ‘Road to California’ (page 61) in the book ‘Treasures in the Trunk’, so I made one of the blocks to see how it looked:
I am pretty happy with it, so I feel a quilt coming on……eventually, so don’t hold your breath! Sadly unlike Victoria over at Bumblebeans, I don’t seem to find that blogging about it makes me more likely to sew it!
Although I am now hand quilting the giant Hexagon Flower garden quilt that was in a post or two back! So I have a nice cosy quilt to sit under as I quilt it in the chilly evenings! Bring on the hot chocolate!
