Just a quickie!

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s busy, busy, busy here at the moment so I’m just dropping in with a couple of WIPs.

This quilt top still needs binding. I made it a couple of weeks ago.

This blackwork (in purple) is the first completed stage of Claire’s SAL. It is only about 2 inches across. I’m sure Claire would love you to join in. Her English blog is on my blogroll at the right hand side of this page if you want to see more details in English. The chart is free at http://www.practicalblackwork.com and we are stitching it over 6 weeks 😀

Got to get busy again 🙂

  7. The quilt is so pretty. I am so loving this trend toward the simple, clean lines in both piecing and the stitching. The stitchery is awesome! Can’t do that any more so will appreciate your work even more!!! Blessings, Doreen

  8. I just love this quilt pattern and the effect of separating the patterns with solid colours. You are so inspiring Avis. regards Linny

    • Thank you so much! The patches looked quite Christmassy on their own so I needed to dress them down a bit. Solids are my favourites 😀 Avis x

    • Yes, there are times when I like intricate patterns too but these prints are quite busy so I tried to calm them down a bit 😉 Avis x

    Avis the blackwork looks lovely. It is very striking on the coloured Aida. As for your quilt. Such gentle shades, so relaxing. Nice feeling to start using up the stash and making something so attractive.

    • He-he! The aida is brilliant white in real life. It’s the photography that went wrong here or maybe just lack of light 🙂 The beige is actually more caramel but it is still quite soothing to look at. Definitely a stash buster but I used up my last charm pack plus solids on this occasion. Avis x

  11. I can’t seem to find a chart anywhere for the blackwork… What is the link?

  12. Nice! I like the quilt. Oddly enough I was looking at books on whitework embroidery this morning, and here you are doing black work! 🙂

    • He-he! I love whitework too 🙂 I’ve just bought a piece of royal blue aida and I’m going to experiment with it.The two SALs I’ve done with Claire are very small but are so effective. I’m really pleased with the results for so little input of precious time. Enjoy! Avis x
