I have been thinking about this project for ages.
I have been unpicking, washing and ironing
old (ish) kimonos.
And this afternoon I finally started cutting out this project.
And now, this evening, I have started sewing....
hmmm not so easy sewing black and darks in the evening.
See how I go?

Do you like textile jewellery?
I do so I had a try at these.....
Yes... Some fabric bangles. I love bangles.
I must find the book that inspired these.
I even had a go at sketching them.
There are more of my sketches on Instagram if you are curious.

Do you remember when everyone, or so it seemed,
was making teddy bears?
Well I didn't. I never finished the first one.
I think I started this in the last century, millennium even.
I no longer have the pattern. I probably never did. Just all the pieces cut out.
So it's all sewn up and when my friends come to the rescue he will have some joints.

Sometimes it seems time passes so slowly and then all of a sudden it's gone!
Since Christmas I have been cutting lots and then sewing a bit everyday
until finally I basted this quilt a few days ago.
I must admit I wasn't overly thrilled with the quilt when I had finished the top.
Don't you hate that?
All that work and then an underwhelming result.
I like it better now I have started quilting.
I am using Wonderfil Spagetti thread.
I really like this thread: it's thicker that quilting thread but thinner that Perle
and it is mercerised so it slips through nicely.
What do you think of the colour choice (orange)?
