Earlier today I wrote an emotionally charged and sentimental post about why I changed my blog name and URL and tonight somehow I deleted it! For crying out loud!!! I can't remember exactly what I wrote and am feeling so frustrated with the whole thing that I am now just going to bombard you with photos instead of trying to re-write my earlier post.
Tonight was my sewing circle night. Usually, it is just an excuse to sit with my Mum and a couple of friends and eat cake and watch trash tv. But tonight I was feeling particularly motivated and instead Mum and I (mostly Mum) machine quilted these mini quilts which I will turn into cushions.
Here they are all loaded up and ready to roll. I have made several of these little quilts. I started them a couple of years ago as a way of trying out some different blocks. On the left are some churn dashes made in repro fabrics on the right the little houses that I originally blogged about here.
I chose baptist fans as the pattern for them because they are old fashioned and I loooooove them.
Here's a view of the fans from the back - not that you'll get to see them when I turn the tops into cushions. But I'll know they're there.
In all that productivity there was still time for cake. Scarlett and I made this coffee walnut streusel cake after kindy today and I have to say I was pretty delicious.
And because today I was a one woman production line I also made the backing for this quilt.
Phew! And now I am going to bed.
I am linking up with Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday. Come and check out what everyone else has been busy creating.
