I've been thoroughly spoiled, haven't I ? A gorgeous stocking, I have never had one before, a Clover white marker and little rolls of cord and ribbons!
Also, a gorgeous table runner, 30's fabrics and needle cases! I just love the card made from and A4 paper and wrapping paper! I can't wait for Christmas now to use my goodies!
Whew! Back to Green Tea and Sweet Beans BOM - very challenging! When one tries to find ways to make things easier, is that called cheating?
I have discovered I am very good at it - foundation-pieced, except for a little bit of applique to incorporate the yellow strips - the block does measure 6 1/2" square as it should! Oh, I do hope I can get through the rest of the quilt using these sort of shortcuts - not enough time to hand piece it all. Am loving making this quilt - click on my Sidebar, just to the left, if you are interested!
This was our place last night - son-in-law working and several Supervisors!
Tried and tested today, my new sewing bench - it is just perfect and cost about $150 all up, from Bunnings! Still extension leads to be connected safely and quilts to be hung - My Studio is coming along very nicely!
