Oh Dear !

Oh Dear indeed !
 Have you ever bitten off more than you think you can chew? Well, that's what has happened to me. I saw this lovely kit  "Floral Impressions" designed by Deborah Kemball on one of my favourite fabric sites Oakshott Fabrics. You buy the kit and then Deborah sends instructions once a month, so it is in fact a BOM. I have for a long time now been trying to improve my needle turned appliqué and thought this would be a good way of doing just that.

It would give me a whole month to do each block. The scrumptious fabric arrived, followed by the first months Pdf file then, then The Oh Dear ! set in... What have I done, firstly the background fabric is WHITE. I know it looks off white in this photo , but believe me it's white. As you know I have two very hairy dogs. What can one say, hairs everywhere. You will also know if I need a light background it will be Kona snow or cream never ever white. The first block has 48 olives, less than an inch each and the thinnest turned stems I have ever seen. Watch this space :0(...

It was Wednesday Club this week and I did try and take a few photos, without much success 
(iCloud is still playing up). This is Alison's lovely William Morris jelly roll quilt. She is so clever, all her quilts are made with such care and she wins prizes in local shows. I love the appliquéd  design down the middle of this quilt.

 I did show you these fabrics of Fiona's some weeks back as I liked the colour combo. She now has a set of lovely table mats. I might just have to copy these they are so fresh, just right for having your breakfast on.

Talking of food, my husband has just brought me lunch and it's fruit as we are fasting today. I am thinking he is trying to cheer me up as I am going to cut out the fabric this afternoon for the first appliqué block.

Keep safe and keep stitching.........Doti...
