thank you and thank you again for all the advice I have had since my last blog.
I am now feeling far more motivated and plan to do my blocks in green, various shades and embellish with additional colour, charms,tatting, maybe a little ribbon work which I have not done before and lots of stitching.
This morning I enthusiastically washed 21 fat quarters, 5 half metres lengths, one one metre length and quite a lot of small pieces I had dyed over the years, all these are in green but some have a bit of added colour and not all are plain so I do not think i will be able to use them all. After washing I spent what seemed like hours ironing them dry and steaming up the kitchen so i could not see out the window, all done now so no excuse for not moving on to starting the blocks. I plan to make all 12 together so will only have to embellish one each month, well at lest that is the plan.. Also washed the muslin I am going to use as the foundation Hurrah!!!
When the warmer weather comes I will wash the other pieces of fabric I have and then will know all is prepared, did not realise how much I had, just picking up fat quarters here and there, found there were 2 I had duplicated but that is not so bad as I bought the first pieces in the 90`s but never knew how to progress till now.
Well it is New Year`s Eve here, I am afraid I will not be staying up to welcome the new year but wish you all a happy,joyous and content year ahead.
