Teddy Bear Tea Party is on hold until I get my "Piping Hot" tool from Susan Cleveland in the US. We have emailed to and fro and she is such a lovely lady taking the time to find the best postage option to get it to me in Oz at the best cost.
I have auditioned and picked out the fabrics to use. I am going to use the pink for the piping around each block and then the blue will be the sashing. The blue/floral fabric will be the border.
I spent yesterday afternoon transferring the design for block 1 of Bric-a-Brac. These are the words that are on the top and bottom of the quilt. "Of treasures, bric-a-brac, and memories old"........."Of precious things, bits-n-bobs, and stories to be told". I thought this would be the boring bit but actually I am really enjoying the letter stitching in 4 different colours.
and block 1 for Betsy's Closet. Ready to stitch and such pretty colours.
I have anticipated the arrival of this stitchery for some time ever since seeing it on some of the blogs that I follow. It just evokes memories of the paperdolls I used to have and loved so much as a child. In addition to the stitchery, I am also awaiting the arrival of the applique version.....definitely not planning on having idle hands.....*hahaha*.
Last night I did some finishing detail stitches on the house on one of the blocks for "My Garden"
It is good to have a progress report and actually have a great deal of progress.
I am linking into WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
