spring break

It seems that a natural break from blogging has commenced.
I highly recommend these breaks from time to time...
it does wonders for your creativity.
I'll leave you then with my latest creation;
remember how I wanted to recreate that magazine feature here?
Not bad for the first year.

ps. I often find that flowers can be wrongly labelled
leading to undesirable results...
I think however in this case
I like the tulip mistake.
pps Audrey your gift is now a wip!
See you all soon

spring quilting

After a morning of serious spring cleaning
I have come to the decision that when my husband works from home
the house gets tidied
and now that he's popped out
I'm back to my quilty ways.
And whilst I'm cleaning I'm thinking of blogging.
So why is it when I do get to blog, my mind goes blank?
I'm nearly done with this little project
and as always I'm unsure.
I don't seem to be able to make pretty,
I seriously don't set out to make 
the type of quilts I make...they just evolve.
I guess we all have our ways...when I'm creatively blocked
I fall back on my quilting default
 english paper piecing + diamonds + startling colour combinations
So what's your comfort quilting style?
ps.
A damp duster is my new best friend (truly)
especially when cleaning seven years of dust
from wooden venetian blinds.
