Sometimes it's nice to let world events

(and local elections)

just wash over you while you sit and stitch.



Recently I asked for help choosing thread for this quilting.

While making the little wrap (in my last post)

I recalled how much I love this old linen thread.



The happy medium: it is thicker than quilting thread but thinner than the Spagetti thread.


I'm happy.

Every time I start to plan my holidays

I start to worry about all those chargers and cords and connectors.

Especially as these days you tend to carry them in your hand luggage.

So I have made a little pouch-wrap kind of thingy.



And the I get to take along something I made,

and in my favourite old japaneses fabrics.

My latest quilt is all in one piece
and basted ready to quilt.
But hard to photograph.
To start with I took it outside so you could see how these leaves have turned.
Not a good shot of the quilt though.
 So then I tried inside.
Do you like the silhouette?
Still can't see the pattern though.
 Hmm. A bit better. A bit wrinkled.
It's a simple cross design in 2 fabrics. Minimalist.

The next big decision: which thread?
A sashiko look or just blue on blue texture?

I have been unpicking kimonos.
Cotton ones.
Just these two. I have a project in mind.
Slow and steady work.
