Anyhow, I wanted to blog about Sue's blocks today, because she very generously included some extra fabric for me. It is always nice to have some stash to link up to Sunday Stash, so two blog posts in one day it is. A Feast or a famine I am afraid.
I love these fabrics. I love the strong emerald green. The thing is, my favourite colour is blue. Always have, always will be, but I am drawn more and more to green these days. I keep buying green wool.
Nope, changed my mind again. The bright blues are my favourite. The three fabrics tone in really well together.
As for the white, well I can never have enough low volume.
Sue very kindly included two strips of blue baby fabric as well.
We have a new addition in our family, our first little grandchild, born in the last few days. I look forward to getting to know him, and of course making him many, many quilts. And knitted jumpers, and hats, and toys. He and I will have a ball. Now I can make all the baby things I wanted to when I had my own children, but of course I hadn't the time nor the energy. Wahey!
Sue also very kindly included two of her hand made project bags. These are gorgeous, right down to the tassel on the zipper and the labels inside. The bigger bag even matches my knitting! When I went to join the "hooker's (?)" the other night, they were all mighty impressed.
The smaller of the two bags is just perfect for the ending of a knitted sock, when the sock wraps neatly around the needles. It would be great for my Liberty EPP hexies too. Remember them? I haven't touched them for a while. They tend to be my "take" when we the football/rugby season starts.
Oh yes, the blocks Sue made me. The two blocks are lovely with a pale blue quatrefoil and orange fire centre. This is going to be some quilt! And yes, this quilt will be for my very own grandson.
Yesterday my friend Liz and myself went to Yarnfolk Festival in Whitehead. I may have entered into a little recreational spending. No one was harmed in the process, and we had a lovely day out. I planned to
linking up with Molli Sparkles and Sunday Stash.
