Just a wee change from cutting fabric for the Paintbox Quilt Along that I’ve been working on.  I love a little bit of Crochet, so I’m sketching some colours, planning the size because this maybe blanket like and checking out how much of Rowan Kidsilk Haze is in my Stash.

Colours so far – Jelly, Trance, Candy Girl, Blood, Majestic, Putty, Liqueur, Dewberry, Marmalade, Meadow, Hurricane and Mist.  Lovely colours with some brilliant names!

Yes, I’m going to admit it now – I have Wool Stash and Fabric Stash and I wondered today how many others have the same addiction :O)

My space will be a little different for a day or two as I’m likely to start cutting more fabric for the Quilt Along…  So what’s in your space today?  Now you’ve seen mine!


Roll Call so far #2…

April 1, 2010

Easter Bunny is on his way...

Roll call for items posted upto and including today:-

Giessen, Germany : Downham Market, Norfolk : Bourne, Lincolnshire.

Just a wee reminder that if anyone is interested, I’ve started a Facebook Group, Country House Crafts so come by and say hello! :O)  A FlickR group will be next on the list so that you can post all those nice photographs of the kits made, fabric used and embroidery worked on if you’ve been to one of my Classes.

I’m looking forward to seeing it grow, just like a Spring Garden :O)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Paintbox Quilt Along

Oh, Fransson!


It all started with reading Kirsty’s Blog Kootoyou, last week and found myself on Elizabeth’s Oh, Fransson!  Oh, boy was I enthused, out came some fabric all prettied up onto the Bookshelves cleared out from last week and came across a lovely book hardly read, Color the quilter’s guide by Christine Barnes.

Three Blocks later, this started on Wednesday and I think about 80 blocks on I will have a lovely Paintbox style quilt having used up some of my own personal stash.  I did deviate from Elizabeth’s pattern slightly by keeping all the fabric cuts at 2.5″ wide each, hence bigger blocks!

So My Creative Space Today!

How it looks today! :O)


Not particularly tidy and busy with work in progress now.  At least I know I’m prepared for plenty of fabric cutting etc.  So what have you got planned this weekend?  Happy Easter to everyone! :O)
