Last night as I sat here sewing I listened to the wintry showers rattling on my windows, there was some sleety hail, which down here turned to water. But up on the hills, there is snow. It's just about seeable on the photo below if you squint, the cloud was very low when I took this picture. This was taken looking roughly South from our bedroom window.
Just to keep in with the theme of looking across the roof tops, I went to the front of the house and took this one too. Here we're looking North and maybe a tad to the East. That white house up there is right at the far end of the mooragh park. Those gentle little hills roll all the way to the very Northern tip of the island.
Enough of all that coldness! On with the warmth. And what could be warmer than a new quilt. I've done quite a bit of shopping recently and felt that it was time to get on with things. So what am I using? And what am I making? I have lots of navy blue with snow flakes and twinkly stars on.
I have silver greys, with more snow flakes and glitter on.
Which I made into a bunch of whirling pinwheels last night! I feel a very wintry quilt happening here.
Now then, to sash with blue? or white? or silver? or what? This morning when I looked at them a brainstorm hit! Why not set them on point? Fine, but that didn't solve the sashing question.
See my friend here? Bottom left? He still isn't right, I fixed him, I fixed him 3 times, but he was determined not to work! So I made another one and threw him in my scraps box!
I've been playing about with my Quilt Wizard program and I just can't decide what looks best, blue or white. Hmm, the only blue I tried is navy blue.....because that is what I have, maybe I should try a pale blue? Unfortunately Quilt Wizard doesn't allow me to save my plans a JPGs so I can't share. I'm off to play.
1) Being indoors on such a cold day.
2) Lots of projects to play with.
3) Hot sweet tea.
