2 small

More small things...
 Do you read blogs?
 Or just look at the pictures?

Do you like my pincushions?
What is the  word for a collection of pincushions?
If you are local to me you might like to visit....

When I have been working on big things like the last quilt
I am wanting to do a few small things as well.

So this where I started...

These are little sewing rolls or "housewives".

Carpenter's Square

So what do you think?
I really like this old pattern but it also looks modern don't you think?

Printemps 2

Did I say I would be back with photos?
Where did the time go?

But rather than gazing out the window I have been doing a bit of sewing...

I think this is called "carpenter's square".
I have been messing around with a pattern I had 
(too complicated) and images from cyberspace to write my own pattern.
If you would like to follow along just let me know and I will forward you my "notes".
I love solids or as I am now going to call it 
"colour blocking".

It's Springtime here and it's lovely.
Here are my indoor flowers.

Tomorrow I will take a few more pictures outside so you can see all the blossom.
The scents are divine.
Sorry it has taken me awhile to get back to the blogging....
Can I blame jetlag?
I have been sewing, just not blogging.
Prove it?
Ha, ha. I have been moving my photos around and wiping the very full memory card
and now I see I have lost the photos 
of my most recent project and the light is not good enough to take more.
But trust me I am well on the way to a new quilt and there are so many project I would like to start now I am refreshed after my walking holiday.
And thank you to all my followers on my holiday.
Wasn't it beautiful?
