Wednesday is cut out day, the beginning of cut out fortnight. Even I should be able to cut out the fabric in two weeks! Because I am multi quilting, working on the Belfast Bulletin and the Postcards From Sweden at the same time (can't spell simul simul simultaeneously), I am following the colours used by Kelly , jeliquilts, in her original design. Kelly has kindly given me permission to use her photographs. So because I can, I am going to admire this lovely quilt again.
I also drew inspiration from Whitehead, in Co Antrim. My friend Liz and I went to Yarnfolk, a yarn festival last August. It was set in Whitehead and we had enjoyed a walk along the prom whilst we were there.
And then of course there were the Hotel Sacher boxes of sacher torte from our holiday in Vienna last year.
And here is a little rainbow of colours that will be used in the quilt. There are more to come, Sandra and I did a little swap from stash too. Please Mr Royal Mail, could you hurry and give them to my lovely postman? I think there 36 different colours in the quilt, and 21 colours in this rainbow. There are a few more colours lurking in the cupboard.
I won't be racing ahead with this over the weekend. Whilst you are reading this, I will be in Dublin with my scrapbooking friends. Well, not Dublin, but the seaside outside Dublin. The seaside - must be made, snowing today and raining all weekend. Scrappers on Tour, sounds bad doesn't it? My husband will be home alone, eating everything but chicken (I LIKE chicken) and relishing not picking threads off his socks as he walks across the floor. I know he will miss me and my constant trail of threads, but I will be back soon for a chicken dinner.
