I rather like my multi coloured snowflake
Here I have taken a photo of it on top of a largish hexie flower block
The lounge floor is today covered with the remaining 76 blocks from the Tula sampler, have not arranged them in any order, I have 10 rows with 7 blocks on each and 6 extra blocks so think I might make one more so it will be 11 by 7, or maybe I might remake the 16 blocks which I have put together in the batik quilt well maybe not! This way I would have a quilt using all 100 blocks, the more I think about it the more I think I might do it, must check I have enough black fabric first.
quite pleased with this
Now for the slash and stack piece, yesterday I hand quilted it, I drew circles randomly over it and around the edge a few half circles. I used gutermans hand quilting cotton in yellow. Now I have 2 fingers on each hand the worse for wear from being pricked with the needle, I do try and wear a thimble on my right hand but it is not very successful, I feel they need to be longer as they do not stay on too well and I always feel I need to push them further onto my finger but there is not the room to do it. Will need to wash the work when I have added the binding to remove all traces of blood and also the pencil lines. I am planning to use some dark turquoise to bind it with.
Yesterday we had our first snow of the winter, it only lasted for abut 5 minutes but the flakes were pretty big, I thought looking at the sky in the morning that we might get snow but it had not been forcasted.
