2014 January

Feeling better and back to normal which includes sewing again. Summer has arrived at last with a couple of lovely warm days which is now going to be followed with 4 or 5 days of hot weather. The next few days are going to be in the 30C's which can get a tad uncomfortable but as we have air-conditioning I will stay in, sew and watch the tennis on the TV of the Melbourne Open. 
Meanwhile I finished Block 3 for Lori's quilt. The centre does look paler in the photo than it really is.

The next project is new and the pattern which is by Somerset will be available in a coming magazine so I'm only showing a small section.

I always pick the roses for the house when I know it's going to be hot. They last a little bit longer indoors.  I think this one is called Mother's Day

and a Blue Moon

and Mister Lincoln

Your block looks great and I love the sneak peek. Can you say what the floral fabric is, it looks gorgeous. You have some beautiful roses!

The background fabric in the hexagon piece is very pretty. Nice choice.

Lori said...

Love your 3rd block! The hexagon is very pretty too. Stay cool!!

Dorothy, So glad you are feeling better :) I love your Lori's quilt Block 3. Great half square triangle blocks and flying geese. What technique do you use when you make those?

Susan said...

You have a good solution to the hot weather! Lovey roses, mine have hardly flowered this summer, just too dry and hot.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Yes, time to bunker down with the air conditioner!! Lovely sewing.

I'm pleased you are feeling better Dorothy. Your roses are beautiful and hope you are keeping cool, we are in hibernation mode here lol.

Have you decided how you will finish off your blocks from Lori's " big top" quilt? I have nine blocks finished and think I might try to make it big enough for my queen size bed.
Your blog is such a lovely place to visit.

Happy Sewing
