I think the drought in my quilting life might be over.
I don't want to mention it too loudly, in case I jinx it, or otherwise scare it away.
Who me? Superstitious? No no, I assure you I not in the least!
This is a picture of the 'droughtbreaker.'
For want of a better name.
Somehow the colours in this pic are not very true to life, not sure why the camera has recorded the green as a bluey green, because it isn't.
I am tempted to call it Green Slime. See that bottom fabric I am test driving for setting triangles.? It is a distinctly slime green colour.
Any suggestions would be very welcome. At the moment it is looking as if I need to visit the fabric shop.
I dont have enough of the floral to complete the settings. I would have to use a different fabric for the corners. I dont have enough of the brown to do all the settings either.
And, somehow after all my mad work getting the blocks all done, & hating them, I am very disappointed. I wanted this to be a gift for someone I love. I dont think I like it enough to give away. Bugger.
There are a couple blocks I might swap the placement of too. I hate things to be too 'odd'.
The reason I rediscovered my mojo is that I won a fabulous giveaway on a blog. I won't blog fully about it until I recieve my parcel, but I got so excited I rushed off to use the fabric in the Autumn tones. I have had them for awhile sitting waiting to be used. Now I can't help but feel a little disheartened at the result.
I was contacted by Connie Colten of Quilt Qua, to ask if I would like to post a picture of a quilt or quilts on her site. I decided I would, & actually uploaded 3 pics. It is lovely to see all the quilts. Do go & have a look, & post some of your own. I see Wanda of Exuberant Colour, has one of her fabulous quilts displayed.
There are prize draws at the end of it all, so have a look.
The weather is fabulously Autumn now, the blue of the sky is lovely. I am unable to sit in the sun at present due to an antibiotic that is photo sesitive. Never mind, I am sure there are many more days to enjoy.
I seem to have the feeling I have emerged from some type of tunnel, re my emotions etc. A loved cousin gave me a good stiff lecture, which probably helped, somewhat. Not a lecture that I haven't given myself before, but I suppose coming from someone else, it brings it all home.
We had our daughter & family for the afternoon yesterday, & that was nice. Her husband arrived later after having played golf at a fancy pancy new Golf course. SIL was very impressed with it, but says he could never afford it!
