This one nearly didn’t happen. And yes, I do know it’s days late…
What with blocks for the Time for Teal Ovarian Cancer quilt, F2F, the new F2F starting in June and the new blog I’ve started for it, getting a GF Bakery order out, dressmaking, embroidery for the three-weekly Stitch Along, and the multiple medical appointments and geriatric creeping about required by my shiny new unstable spine, back brace and taping, I got a not very impressive ONE block done. Still, I spoiled you last time with 4, so I don’t think you can complain 🙂
And here it is. I like it, I chose the most cheerful fabric I’d put aside for the project, a lovely Philip Jacobs design for Westminster Fibers: ‘Geranium Leaves’ in the lilac colourway. I bought it for my stash about 5 years ago, and I don’t think it’s available any more, so I’m being very economical in how I use it. I forget what the lid band fabric is, I only bought 30cm of WOF and there’s no detail on the small amount of selvedge.
I don’t think Carla and the others in BM&I have had a very productive month either, but this is a no-obligation Bee, and the Bee Police haven’t come calling to ask where my work is, so I think it’s all good. In any case, hop over to Carla’s blog to see what’s going on over there. It’s worth is just to look at all the pretties she’s been making. You can also click on the ‘Bee, Myself and I’ button in the left hand column to go straight to the bee page, where you’ll also find a list of the other participants, so you can see what they’re up to as well.
I promise to do better next month…. I hope
