That pastel tessellation quilt just doesn't talk to me at the moment... so I keep on going off on little sidetracks to satisfy my creative 'needs'.
Had to do some little repairs to the 8y old's "Don't worry, be happy" backpack - he still loves it, and almost two years on it has held up well:)
I also pulled out Jan Mullen's Reverse Applique with no Brakez:
Here are my sketch (please note the muddy prints one of our 4 cats has left...)
my secret layer,
the top with faint outline
and the sandwich ready to quilt:
Plan was I might take it on holiday to hand blanket stitch but this turned out to be a naughty word because after about 6 blanket stitches I couldn't stand the look so I might machine quilt it after all, and I will have to go on a quilting detox for the 10 days we are away (horror!!!)
There are a few other little projects I am working on, one can't be revealed yet as it is a present I have been working on for a while but still need a few bobs'n'bits, and I would love to get my shopping tote finished before the big trip to Aussie; we'll see...
P.S. Reached a new mile stone today; not only have I now found that card reader on the laptop (duh... except the batteries on the camera are flat lol), I managed to upload pics with the ipad (way more complicated though) but I ended up editing it on the laptop after all. I'm obviously not made for ipads...
