So.... here is what I am going to be putting on Russell's brown and teal quilt top:
ABOVE: baby thumbs... seem to know automatically how to use them on a PSP! I can still vividly remember when Steve and Mike first got controllers that involved using the thumbs only. They got HUGE blisters on their thumbs!
It was amazing. lol
Today? I don't think I shall be walking this morning. My calves and shins are really sore, so a day off might be in order. I've done three days in a row, so I'm pretty proud of that.
I shall go again tomorrow for sure... it seems to lift one's mood getting out there walking.
So today I shall be sewing. And doing a bit of housework too no doubt.
Shit! I had no idea I'd not updated ALL DAY!
I've been really busy getting that fern cut out, fabric sorted etc. It was a LONG job.
I had all these 1 and a half inch batik strips already cut out, so I joined them all together to form the fronds of the fern.
Then cut out the brown background... cut it all out, and pinned it on.
This is what took ALL DAY:
ABOVE: Now I have to stitch all the batik fronds to the brown background, AND go over every join in the fronds too. Then I can lay it on top of the quilt itself and see how it goes?
I'm worried it will be too bright and swamp the quilt blocks. Time will tell I suppose!
One of the bonus's of putting the photos on here is I can get a different look at it. Now I see I have to trim the fifth frond from the bottom (left hand side) ... a bit.
Ya it's takeaway night tonight, so I don't have to cook. I like that idea.
Dinner was Pizza. Everyone loves pizza in this house.
Then we watched channel 1 all night, some really good programmes on a Thursday night I must say.
End of Day: didn't get as much done around the house as I should have, but I did get heaps done on the fern!
Can't have it all eh.
