I’m joining in with Gillian today for a Friday Happies post.
1. Here’s the trolley I picked up at ikea last Friday (last Friday?? Where has the week gone??!!)
I should tell you it was the practicality of it that drew me, but really it was the colour! Don’t you just love the turquoise – or should it be called Tiffany blue?! The contents will be a moving feast depending on what’s currently being stitched, and the coffee table
will should stay clear of “sewing stuff”!!
2. My design wall is up!
I’m so happy that I finally have a design wall! It’s not in the best location; the only wall space is in the spare room (it will give The Kettles something interesting to look at when they stay!), but it’s right next to where I sew, so not far to walk. I joined two 1.9m lengths together, so it’s quite wide at 2.3m
3. The pattern that I ordered last week at Patch n Quilt when we visited for Irene’s new pattern launch has arrived! (They’d run out!!)
Gorgeous, huh?! I just love it! If you’re interested in any of Irene’s patterns, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
4. After quilting the centre of my current hand quilted quilt, I was so looking forward to implementing the idea I’d had for the blocks. Alas, not all plans seen with the mind’s eye look as good in reality!! I hated it! I’d carried this idea in my head since piecing the quilt years go. Very frustrating to see it didn’t work, and worse, having to unpick my hand quilting!! Some considerable contemplation later, quite some time calculating distances and measurements, and a trial block done…….
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
