I was testing out my idea that fuschia and butter yellow actually do look nice together. I love the apron, but more just to look at it hanging on my kitchen door than to wear it. I'm hopeless and rarely take the 20 seconds required to put an apron on while cooking/baking.
The fabrics worked well with the Essex linen in Putty, I thought. So I forged ahead and started making the intended project: a queen sized quilt for our bed. That quilt is now basted and ready for quilting. I haven't shown it to you yet for a few reasons, the main one being I knew it would take a long time to finish. I wanted to work at my own pace, enjoy the process of piecing entirely with Agatha (my Featherweight) and not feel pressure to complete. I love it so much and can't wait to finish and share it with you. B's initial panic at having a pink quilt has subsided, I think. It's not really pink. It just has some pink in it.
Ok, it's basted and ready to go, as I said. But what now? First I'll need these threads:
Kitchen Apron Aurifil Thread Collection
I went completely overboard while collecting for Our Bed Quilt and probably have enough fabric left over to make 2 or 3 more massive quilts, so this case of thread candy would definitely be used and appreciated. You can try your hand at winning a designer case of 12 Aurifil threads, too. Visit Lynne for all the details.
Looks like there is a lot of interest in some travel photography, so I'll just start you off with the obvious. This happens to be my fav photo of this iconic Paris landmark at nightfall. No photoshop, it's just what happened when I clicked the shutter.
There's plenty more where that came from. Give me a little time to figure out how to distill things down into a few manageable posts. And do something about the fact that it's Easter this weekend. Yikes!
