Here is the latest leaf sampler, and I have to confess I am getting a bit bored - I hope you aren't too. It hasn't got the binding on yet, but I have taken the photo with the dark green that I shall be using in the background so you can get the idea.
There is a distinct lack of inspiration here at the moment, with energy being used up in all directions except sewing. Here is one of the reasons:-
I have been busy digging, and had to put in plenty of hours over the Christmas and New Year holidays to get my allotment in order. I'm not complaining - in fact, after the months of misery with a frozen shoulder last year it is a minor miracle that I have managed it.
Meanwhile, domestic creativity is being channelled into cakes. Fancy making some jam muffins? Too easy to be true.
Here goes for week 27...
Many thanks to Maartje, Hilary, Judy, Gwyned, Barbara, Janine, LeeAnna, Linda and Quilt Musings for linking up last time.
If you love free motion quilting, whether you are a beginner just taking the plunge, or you have reached the stage where you can do ostrich feathers with your eyes shut and still achieve perfect symmetry, then please link up.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
Or, because it is still January, link up to show your favourite FMQ project finished in 2014.
2. Link back to this post in your own post and/or grab the linky button for your blog's sidebar.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
4. The link up will remain open for four days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Monday.
So far quilters from USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand and France have taken part. The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
Linking up with Kelly's blog My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday
and Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop Friday.
