This week had been chaotic, did I mention that?
and throw a living room wall-removal into the mix and it's all go really.
By yesterday I was desperate for some sewing time
and put Chrissy and Annie on the bus to go to Playcentre
and spent an hour sewing strips onto squares.
It doesn't look much yet but it felt good.
Today I've been trying to find homes for the contents of a large wardrobe,
an enormous side-board, two tea-trolleys and a wall unit.
Oh my it's exhausting. I still have to drag the rubbish out of the house
(it's piled in the hall) and also the giveaway pile to the car for the opshop.
The good part is getting rid of a whole lot of rubbish and having some newly sorted spaces.
Anyway I've reached the end of my tether,
so I pulled out my vintage sheet Piece and Love Hexagons
and I've been making a few more.
I just love seeing all these fabrics together.
I want this to be the quilt for next Summer.
I'm imagining it under a tree with with the sun shining and the birds singing.
I imagine Reuben lying on it reading
and Annie being Doctor McStuffin.
I imagine Kenny and Mondo and the cats sneaking onto it.
I imagine being warm.
I imagine the house and garden are tidy and dinner is on and the washing is up to date.
Yes this is the quilt I'm making.
But it's slow you know. So so slow.
I hope you don't mind if I keep showing pictures of it,
I love it so much. The colours make me so happy.
I also love using the vintage threads that Deb gave me.
I love the wooden reels and the labels.
I love using the old old kitchen scissors I save for this project.
I love keeping my papers in this wallet that Amber made me.
It's a real feel good project! It won't be long before I can start sewing them together.
But in the meantime, I'm can admire them, sort through them
and just play with my sweet hexagons.
I have to warn you though, this won't be the last post about them.
