is a mess!
Reason 2b cheerful~ 56 flying geese trimmed, only 24 to go. Ah ça! My poor hand and shoulder. I shall not tell how long it took me to trim those 56 geese; too embarrassing. Despite careful sewing and cutting, the majority of my geese were wonky liek woah, and it became an art to trim them up. (I resewed some of the worst offenders–had to.)
Another reason 2b cheerful~ I found an Etsy shop that stocks ‘Paganini’ (Why Etsy did not occur to me earlier??) but they’re away until the 20th. At least I will be able to make the schnibble, even if I’m too late for the parade that Sherri and Sinta are proposing for ‘Le petit’.
Thank you for visiting, and do go see what everyone else is up to at kootoyou.
I like the word ‘stuff’. It covers so many situations where the right word eludes me. Today’s ‘stuff’ includes some quilty chatter and what’s-on-my-work-table.
When I was at Harrogate expo recently, I bought a book. I’m not a great one for books (unlike fellow quilter H who has enough to open a store! Seriously) but the patterns in this one–J’adore! Plus, it was a fun read. Plus, the author is a goggeh person–her pattern company is named after said goggeh–have I clued you in enough yet? I came home with schnibbles times two. I read it through. And through. And some more. And then, as fellow quilter H would say, the pondering started. I have my share of charm packs, and only half-assed notions of what to do with them, but after reading this book, I had no idea where to start first!
Counting, I had ‘Pumpkin and Spice’ by Deb Strain (love her fabrics!) in enough to start this:
With one change, I’m following the pattern attentively (after an early error!) and that is to substitute blue for the cream in the geese and sashing. Nothing says automne to me like those turning leafy colors against a blue sky, the kind of blue you only get on a clear, crisp automne day. Fingers cross that it comes out the way I see it in my mind’s eye… *g* Stuff seldom seems to. Enough ‘stuff’ for today.
