State of the quilt

31 Jan

This doesn’t look too encouraging. I had hoped that by this time, I’d have the top pieced. Instead, here’s how it looks, still. And the backing fabrics have not even been prewashed!

I’m using a pattern for the quilt since I can only accomplish randomness when I plan it carefully. What an oxymoron. Tomorrow will bring progress, I promise. Yes I can!

In the meantime, I have entertained myself with some new books. The free shipping at Bookdepository proved too difficult to resist with the pound being so cheap.

Once again I have way too many projects planned. But: the weather is nice, so I’m gonna go for a walk. Piecing can wait now that we’re seeing sun for the first time in weeks.

Stay tuned for more quilty pleasures. There has also been some knitting, would you believe it?

    Todella kauniita tilkkutöitä olet tehnyt! Hyvä, että mä en ole ainoa, joka on seonnut halvan punnan takia, kirjoja on ilmestynyt kummallisesti kirjahyllyn täytteeksi ihan kuin itsestään koko ajan.

    Heippa! Ihania kirjoja ja töitä!! Olisko noista kirjoista mahdollista saada jotain pientä esittelyä tai sun mielipidettä että mimmoisia ovat, mitä niistä löytyy..? Tuntuu, että neulekirjoista on paljon kaikenlaista, mutta näistä vähemmän. Tai sitten en vain ole vielä löytänyt tietäni niiden luo ;)

    Ellu, yritän löytää aikaa ainakin kirjata ylös joitain huomioita ja näyttää täällä suosikkiohjeitani/kuviani. Osa kirjoista osui ja upposi, osaa pitää vielä vähän makustella :)
