Around here

~ it’s been very cold here, Winter has well and truly set in, and with the depressing news of a spike in COVID cases in Melbourne, things haven’t been that cheery. So here’s my attempt at cheering up (you and myself!!)

~ been enjoying carnations from the green grocer. They seem to last forever, and so lovely and happy to look at on a grey, dull, wet day

~ I’ve put together these low volume squares

and am planning an applique using the large print from Anna Maria Horner’s “Hindsight” range

~ you know when you stop sewing something cos it’s just not right, not sitting well with you? Well, I wasn’t happy with my applique background for the “Message in a Bottle” block, so got rid of the yellow on the top section and replaced it with these sweet hanging lanterns on Saturday night – much better and happy to continue to applique now.

~ and Mum’s socks are coming on a treat……

Hope you’re well and finding lots to do to keep you busy and on top of things.

Much love

    Love receiving ‘pomegranate and chintz’ always brightens my day. Busy trying to finish projects off, putting projects I need help with away until classes start and dreaming of possible future projects.

    Lovely and bright cheerful post (on this dreary Victorian day). That flower will look stunning on the low volume background.

    Thanks for cheering me up…. need it at the moment with all this depressing news! Tried to get myself going this morning by vacuuming the house, and will now retreat to my seeing room for the day. Have a nice one! 🤗

    Well, it’s the middle of summer here, and it’s wet and windy, with a forecast of lots of rain, so I guess I will be doing lots of sewing! We are holding our breath here, in case there is a second wave of the virus now that a lot of restrictions have been lifted. We just have to rely on others to follow the rules.

    Just lately I’ve been buying a bunch of flowers every couple of weeks, just looking at flowers cheers me up. I didn’t see the yellow in the top section, but I think the lanterns look perfect, the flowers stand out really well on them.

    Yes it does look better – r you appliquing the large flowersc at the moment?? Ma will have those socks soon to keep her feet warm 😅💕

  7. I do love that applique block with sweet little lantern print in the background. Your carnations are really very pretty.

  8. Yes, my MIL has been saying it’s about to go very quiet and full-on lockdown again. She’s not best pleased!
    The lantern print does make a charming background, doesn’t it!
