Today is Australia Day; today is the day my daughter has become an Australian citizen. In recognition of that fact I made a wall hanging for her ... it is in the post! This project took a lot of time, hence my lack of postings.
I did manage a few small projects as relief from plugging away at the wall-hanging. A girl needs a diversion every so often.
A mug rug where the theme was cats or dogs had me practising my foundation piecing, and to be honest I found it hard to part with the cool cat. Foundation piecing is fun, though I am not sure I would care to tackle a large project! The cat, dressed in his 'night prowling' clothes didn't take long; there were no signs of incomprehension as may have happened this time last year. Pushing oneself to not only tackle a new method, but to keep at until it becomes less stressful and more normal.
The Quilter's Cache offers patchwork blocks, some simple, some difficult. This year I am attempting to complete two quilt tops using blocks from this site. Both these quilts are BOM's; one block, the House that Jack Built, is completed.
This was the year when I intended to complete unfinished projects, but already I have a mental list of new projects that I fear will take up much of the time I had mentally set aside as 'finishing time'. Oh well, 'tis just as well I never made that a New Year's resolution!!
