We are all breathing a sigh of relief now that the weather has changed from unbelievably hot to our much cooler but more normal summer weather. I think most people living in Melbourne, Aus melted during our four days of over 40C temperatures this last week. Yesterday dropped to 19C which felt a tad cold but today at 24C is beautiful. Long may this last.
It gave me the time though, to sit with the Air conditioning ON , to watch the Tennis and Sew. I started Di Ford's BOM , in Quiltmania. and here is a picture of what I have done so far. If you've seen it in the magazine you'll notice I've used a different fabric for my Broderie Perse. I'm already making a quilt with the Chintz fabrics and didn't want two with the same. The places where the ring of scallops sits, I've marked with an iron-off pen so they won't show once I have them placed - and pressed. The background is a creamier colour than is showing in the photo, too.
and I'm still working with the Chintz and the hexies. It's turning out quite bright.
