A lovely distraction :)

There are so many things I should have been doing today...boring things like mopping floors and doing laundry...but I chose to play with my Some Kind of Wonderful quilt instead :)

I didn't plan for it to take all day, but cutting little 1 1/2 inch squares of each and every fabric took some time (what a shame!)

And there was a little embroidery to finish off too. I decided to go with blanket stitch for this quilt for a couple of reasons...I love the texture, I love matching thread colours, and I can do it neatly (unlike needleturn, which I am not so good at!)


I've thrown some blue fabric in there, because I really want my blue jean block (coming up next) to have blue jeans :)


Just a couple more blocks to go, and I've done the first row...which is due to be finished by the end of December. Love that feeling of being up-to-date...at least with one of my projects, anyway :)

The funny thing about housework...it will still be there tomorrow :)

Beautiful stitching!

Pretty fabrics, aren't they? Do you use any sort of stabilizer behind the stitching or is it just the main fabric?

Oh my goodness-- soooo cute!!! I'm having a fit over that "cup of tea" image. It's so darling!! This may just be my favorite quilt of yours... until the next one, of course. Hee hee.
Hugs,
