It has been slow stitching week. Although the fabrics are all over my sewing room,
I don't feel I am getting anywhere right now. Which is not actually true, I am still building houses in the block 5 of Yoko Saito's Mystery Quilt and this block has most houses yet. That is the reason for so many fabrics out, as I am constantly looking for that right piece for a wall, a roof or a door.
I have been enjoying this project, but I also look forward to the finish. In the next issue of the Quiltmania magazine I will find out how to put all these blocks together.
It will nice to get on with something new. Not that I have not been doing other things in the meantime, you know me, I can't stick with one thing only. But the mess in my room does not inspire.
It was a welcome sight to see the new crewel threads from Renaissance Dyeing arrive in the post last week.
Beautifully soft 100% lambswool from Yorkshire, hand dyed in France, using natural dyes, they are a pleasure to hold. I can't wait to start some embroidery with them.
Our autumn has not turn out as good as we wished for, mostly wet and murky, with a sunny day now and then.
