Did you sign up?....... for Friday Night with Friends over at Cheryll's.......there are quite a few this week and I can't wait to see what everyone has worked on.
Yesterday I went to Bunnings with hubby and picked up a few paint swatches in the colours that I wanted to use for this months NewFO and then went home to audition fabrics from my stash. Turns out I needed quite a bit more. You would think that with all that fabric, I would have no problems but it turns that I don't have much grey stashed.
So with these swatches in my bag, a trip to one of my local quilt shops was the order of the day today and I found some gorgeous fabrics to add to my bundle.
The pattern uses a grey dot for the background of the appliqued penguins but when I saw the grey swirl fabric, I thought it was just perfect. Together with the other fabrics below, I could just about be there.
Am I working on this for FNWF?........no! sorry for being a tease but..........
.............my plan is to work on my BOMs tonight.....probably mostly on Bric-a-Brac but luckily I checked my supplies because there were quite a few missing colours from my embroidery threads. I was able to pick these up when I was out at my LQS. Actually that is the main reason I went to THAT particular shop because they are the only ones who sell my preferred thread....DMC.
but I was determined to get this done before I called it a night.
This is such a pretty block for Bric-a-Brac and I would like to get it complete before the end of the month.
Gorgeous colours you have chosen and what a great idea using the paint colour samples xxxReplyDelete

Lovely stitchery Cath. I agree your idea of paint swatches is a great one. How lucky you are to have your daughter like quilting too. Mine loves quilts just not sewing them. My GD is doing a dress design course so there is some hope for me yet. Hugs.......ReplyDelete
