It is a wet, windy, freezing, Saturday in my neck of the woods. We have had severe weather warnings, mostly for wind. It is blasting in from the South, whipping up the waves along the coast road, in some places barreling the sea over the new wall. I've had a pleasant trip to a local patchwork store, where it was so cosy, out of the weather. The staff are friendly & ever so eager to help with enquiries, sales & helpful suggestions for stock they do not have available. I needed another packet of flat pins as my container of such, may have fallen in the bin & gone to the tip. I also wanted to replenish a fat quarter of a lovely pastel purple & white stripe fabric. I would never have thought I'd use the first fat quarter, let alone need more. It is really a beautiful quality fabric. I used the first fat quarter in a couple of TSS blocks & also to line a fabric Ort container yet to be finished & .photographed. I also required a fat quarter of newspaper print fabric, seeing the previous piece is currently in hiding. So all three items have traveled home to live with my stash.
So far this week I've manged to complete three TSS blocks. This one is titled,
"A Spool of Inspirational Thread." A first attempt at Foundation Paper Piecing. I do like the process, so the third block below, is also constructed with that method.
The second one is called, "Dreaming of Dresden."
Last, & definitely not least is, "Homeward Bound."
There are a few more underway at the moment, hopefully they will be completed for the next post.
