My next sewing project is going to be a single bed, Dresden Plate Quilt. In pinks.
Cos... ya never know what the next baby will be. Well......... not yet anyway.
Right... these are the ideas:
ABOVE: Same Dresden Plate, different backgrounds. Which one to use? Bex likes the green one, I like the white one, neither of us are sure about the brown.
Today is Patchwork class. I might just do a mug rug or two instead of spending all my time there cutting out Dresden Plate pieces.
I'm looking forward to it... getting out and about.
MARLS: I do have some pink, but it's the wrong shade and looked freakin' disgusting!
I might get some from Spotlight today to try it.
Class today was lovely, there were 4 ladies plus the tutor and me. So a nice group.
One of the ladies was finishing off a Dog Cuddle Quilt, and I fell in love with the Dog Panel she had bought.
I asked where she got it from (Waihi) and she said she bought it YEARS AND YEARS ago. So I wouldn't be able to get another one.
Really? I hot footed it home and immediately got on Ebay, and BOOM! Last one for sale... so I bought it, is should arrive middle of the month.
ABOVE: isn't it GORGEOUS! You cut the blocks out and surround them with a fabric of your choice, the lady at class had used a brown fabric with paw prints all over it ... and a bright multi-striped fabric as the border. I will be doing the same I think.
ABOVE: Option 4. Which I am going with. I can use brighter, contrasting colours for the sashings and borders... if it needs any more colour. I've not decided yet what to use for the middle of each Dresden Plate... time will tell.
Griffin has a sore throat, so I made a Doctor's appointment for him.... and Bex suggested I try to see the Doctor too for my back.
So I did.
Griffin's throat isn't too bad according to the Dr, but she took a swab and we have an antibiotic prescription IF he has strep throat, should know by Friday.
Me? I've got Tramadol for me back. YUM... I know that stuff works! Fingers crossed it kicks in soon cos the constant pain is making me feel sick.
Sadly, the Tramadol hasn't helped much... YET. I'm hoping once it gets into my system thoroughly it will make a difference?
Having a quiet evening (as per usual), cut out another few blades for the 2nd Dresden Plate. I can't wait to put a few together to see how it's going to look!
End of Day: a neat day, bad back aside. Off to have a spa now... if the water is hot enough!
