Quilt top in progress
So starting on Zebra-girl's quilt seemed the perfect undertaking for a day when I didn't feel like slavishly trying to get things 'right'. Having already planned the design on my computer a week or two ago, there was no procrastination and I was, once again, delighted by how much simpler this way of planning a quilt has proved to be.
It came together easily and I'd pieced together most of the top in less than two hours - I just have the more intricate border to work on now...which I'm looking forward to doing over the next couple of evenings.
As they'd sat waiting to be turned into a quilt top over the last couple of weeks, I'd somehow fallen out of love with the colours of these fabrics. Luckily sewing with them has been restorative in this department.
Ps. This quilt top and post were brought to you wearing mens' deodorant. I'd packed our bags in something of a hurry on Saturday morning and forgotten my own. Despite being apparently non-scented, I find that, having borrowed his deodorant, I now smell just like Mr Teacakes: my nose has kept twitching happily at the scrumptious biscuity mannish scent that I can smell...I don't think I had realised that this smell was his...until I smelt it on myself and felt like I had stolen part of him. I think I may be in danger of falling in love with myself.
