I’ve decided to properly applique my patchwork leaves for my Brit Quilt mini-quilt swap. I know it’s going to take a while, but I know I wouldn’t feel happy if I didn’t. So here’s a small celebration…2 down, 14 to go:
I’m hoping that it’s just an optical illusion that one leaf looks bigger than the other…
It’s been a good day today. It looks like we have a new babysitter. This has been a problem since our last sitter went off and had her own baby (some people!), but has become rather pressing because we are due to start our Preparing to Foster course next month. Finding a sitter is really tricky when you have 2 autistic kids who, whilst being very lovely, are extremely nervous of new people and twitchy about routine change. You can imagine…! Anyway to cut a long story short, we think we’ve sound someone, so keep your fingers crossed it all works out.
And more good news – I tried a bit of FMQ stippling. It’s a bit more seaweed-y than the lovely work by Elizabeth Hartman that I was inspired by, but I had fun and it looks pretty good I think:
Thanks to everyone who offered helpful advice and encouragement about my last attempt. I’m really touched when people take time to share their experience or just say something nice. It’s always appreciated!
