The Missus took this piccie of me holding up a quilt top I finished on Sunday night. It had started off as “I’m Blushing”, but evolved into Lestat’s new cover for the kitchen chair he hides/sleeps on, as I ran out of fabric. He currently has a sarong which he gets tangled up in when he tries to get underneath it. He gets most miffed about it, as he previously had the end of a table cloth to hide under. He considers a quilt will be MUCH more suitable!
I’ve been slicing and dicing 6 ½ x 3 ½ inch green bricks today for my next two projects. One set will be for the green strip on a tablecloth with a coin purse design in the lesbian/gay Pride colours with black for the borders. The other set is for a double sided green lap quilt for The Missus. Green is her favourite colour.
The FOSAL rules have changed slightly, so if you would prefer to pick a new project each month, you can. I’ve mooched through some of my Christmas cross stitch patterns and have come up with my “lucky dip” list for FOSAL. My list is…..

Heidi is co-hosting a Friday Night Sew-In on 15th Jan for night of stitchy goodness…..The details are here. I will be there in my pj’s with a cup of tea, some chocolate and I have no idea what kind of sewing yet! It is a safe bet to assume it will either be machine or hand sewing! 😉
