Today I went through Sydenham
which is the part of town nearest where I live
and took some photos of my latest creation!
The sky was grey and it's freezing cold
and sadly there are a lot of fences for photographing quilts
in Sydenham. So many empty spaces.
I made this quilt yesterday.
I found a bunch of scraps in a bag,
and madly sewed them together
cut them into 12.5 inch squares, sewed them together
and quilted it in straightish lines.
It's a wee burst of colour.
The lines are a bit crooked and there may be tucks on the back
but Annie-Rose loves it (mine, mine)
Proving once again to myself that you can make good things
from left over bits.
To be sure it's a lesson we need to learn over and over again
here in Christchurch as the rebuilding process begins.
