Here are all the centre stitchery panels joined together. I've used Red Brolly/Bronwyn Hayes designs, as I love her style.
This is probably my favourite block, for a few reasons. Firstly, it was the last one I finished, so there was a wonderful sense of accomplishment, as it had taken about 12 months to complete the stitcheries. They were 'in between' projects when I had completed one pattern design and hadn't begun the next. Secondly, the title of this design is "My Sewing Chair" and it is my long held dream to one day have a little nook in a lush cottage garden with a cane chair in the shade to sit and stitch. Sigh!!! One day! In the meantime, I'll enjoy the dream as I look at my quilt. And I'll keep you posted on the work in progress. I realise that it won't always be possible to set aside a day to work on my UFO's, but if I have that as my goal, even if it's only half an hour or so, surely I should achieve SOMETHING for the year!
Anyway, I can hear my beloved snoring away in bed and think it's time for me to join him. Somehow, I always get more done after 10pm than I do all day. It's a habit I picked up when I was at Uni - after 10, it was quiet, there were no interruptions and fewer excuses for me to procrastinate. Then, when I was working as a Journalist/photographer, the night was again the only chance I had to sew as weekends tended to be household chores and catch up. Now ... it's ingrained, though I've always been a 'night owl' like my Dad - much to my mother's horror, as she is a 'morning fowl'! Tee! Hee! Hee! However, even this night owl is starting to droop, so it's into my jim jams and off to sleep for this tired little teddy bear. Til next time,
