slow week

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.
I leave you with some pictures from our very wet and muddy forest walk at the end of last week.

playground for forest fairies?

spooky horse riders?

Have a good stitching week!


  1. your house quilt block is looking great, love the colour way you are using for it.
    Wow those threads are lovely and the wool is from Yorkshire say no more!

    Enjoyed walking through your forest with you, some beautiful photos, glad I am not the only one to photo cobwebs, took quite a few last week but they do not seem as good as past years.
