Here in Australia almost every female I know is preparing for a night in front of the television to 'attend' the wedding of Prince William and his Kate...
Blossom and I have been chatting about it all day, wondering about the dress, the cake, *the* kiss! It's so very exciting and takes me back 30 years to Diana's wedding to Prince Charles - I was glued to my chair, totally besotted with the pomp and ceremony of a royal wedding. Nothing has changed, I am as excited now as I was then.
May God bless their marriage and bring them much joy, many children, and hearts to help all those they can.
The weather has cooled considerably now - a lovely 27C most days, which is perfect stitching weather - so I have spent some time cutting up 148, 2 1/2 inch squares to assemble, finally, my new quilt design.
All the stitched and appliqued blocks have been completed for over 4 months, but I just wasn't sure about the final quilt layout until yesterday. Simple, but the blocks are the star of the quilt so this design will give them centre stage.
In between Home-Ec classes next week I'll be able to bring all the blocks and the piecing together to hopefully make something truly pretty you'll love as much as I do. After all this time I am thrilled to see the end in sight. :-)
I'm doing well with block 2 of that 18 month old BOM I told you about HERE. This block is the 50's kitchen scene...
One last thing that has taken my sewing time is a new design for winter; something with a bit of class...
What are you working on? Something old or something new?
I hope you enjoy watching the Royal Wedding tonight! I'll keep my hand stitching close by...
