Time is spinning out crazily...... mid April already.
This week I got the last two blocks for Gardeners Journal together....
Here are some garden tools
and here the friends are off to a garden show
I experimented a little with the tea - you can see on the scrap where I stained half of the piece... just tones it down
Please meet Tilly the Tea Lady - this is the next set of blocks I am working on for Angel Story
(well one of the next set of blocks!)
Friday night with the girls was cancelled this week so finding a bit of extra 'machine' time I put the GJ blocks together and added the borders... and stained the blues....
Ta-da.... Gardeners Journal top is completed
I do love it.... I love stitcheries and piecing
So now it is joining the quilting queue.....
This picture shows the difference between the blues before and after staining
perhaps a tad more muted than I had meant it to be - but I prefer it to the brightness
Righto, Gotto Go.... I'm going to do something very practical and make a bunch of towelling cloths. A bit boring but in my opinion they work well and are tough.
Have a lovely weekend ...xx
