In the blue tri-an-gle

So the project for this week is to complete the cutting for the windmill blocks for this quilt. I have already cut several hundred triangles today, despite chickening out of changing my rotary blade. I should get a few pieced before we start our half term break. I am loving the oriental fabric and plan to hand quilt in a thick white thread- not exactly Sashiko but with a nod in that general direction. I will show you how far I get, probably on Wednesday as that is the last day when anything sensible will happen as after that the whole family will be around, and sharp objects should be well hidden!

I also received a parcel with four more titles for review from Search press, so I may be trying my hand at cable knitting, painting dragons and dying my own fibres soon. (and for my next trick lion juggling!)

There is a book on painting dragons? Does it tell you how to keep them still until the paint dries? (Who is publishing the one on lion juggling then??)

Sounds like you'll be nice and busy. Can't wait to see your quilt, good luck with the blade changing.

Too scrummy. Just adore your oriental fabrics, especially those blues!

I have to say a new blade in the rotary cutter makes all the difference - I realized that I had been using the same one for years, and changing it was quite transformative!

Lion juggling?!! Is there no end to your amazingness?! Roll up, roll up, see the Fabulous Jennyflower, textile magician and lion juggler! You will I hope not practice on the kids as I am pretty sure that's illegal... fun, but illegal!

Funny how our minds work - I instantly thought of Old Glory (the American flag) when I saw this pic ( red, white and blue)!

Anxious to see the quilting progress :)
