Big Sky

 I just can't help myself.
Making these little pictures is so addictive.

the two above are not quite completed as I think I need to add some detail.
 I have the scraps are spread out on my sewing table and I start fiddling on yet another one.
And two does not make a series. 

So here is a third one.
These are about the size of your old panorama printed photos.
Remember them?

Latest tea cosy

This would have to be my favourite so far.



I am really enjoying making my tea cosies again. Why?

They allow me to work in a series (people give materclasses on that).

I work freehand making decisions as I go.

I love needle turn appliqué.

I am testing out various threads for quilting.

They are portable.

While not that quick they don't take that long and who doesn't like a finished project?

And it allows me to venture into Etsy in a small way.

Name suggestion?

I have to say that I am quite pleased with my latest completion.

It has taken quite few years.

I love it when people say:

"and how long did it take you?"

Well they won't be disappointed this time.

Why does a quilt need a name anyway?

Like children?

So you can keep track of them?

Any suggestion?

And the back story of course.

I like to think of these as snaps shots taken out the car window while driving in the country. 
They are about the size of photos when I was a child,
or like trading cards.
But I want to sell them not trade them.

Boro is a term much used these days.
In Japanese it refers to cloth that is in rags, tattered and mended.
I am reluctant to call what I do boro
but it is mending.

In case you were wondering about me..
Mostly I have been working on this.
Slow stitching.
