Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post and sent wedding wishes our way. We are both really looking forward to seeing Tony's folks again and spending time away. Our wedding will make this trip extra special. I'm trying not to think of Swine Flu and really hoping that it won't get so bad that we won't be able to travel. Enough of that!
As you know I've set off on a joint venture with DD Kay. Originally we cut some very long vines, about 108 inches, but since then we had a rethink and chopped them down considerably! Now we have a bunch of 25 inch vines and a whole load of wide black strips! LOL We'll make a couple of wall hangings and see where we go from there.
Here you see the start of the first two vines. The plan is to join them together with some columns of four or nine patches set on point. The picture is a bit wishy washy, it's one of those days.I really don't know where I saw a similar design, but I did and that's what gave me the idea. I should start making a note of these things.
As I'm sure you've guessed, one of the reasons for speeding this one along some is so that I can make a start on my Peaches and Cream. If I get a chance I'll post a quick picture of the magazine concerned and the issue numbers tomorrow. Right now it's my day off, I've set myself some homework, then my time is my own. I think I'll applique leaves onto my vine.
1) Good luck wishes.
2) Pretty cut flowers from a friend.
3) Lots of pretty scraps.
