New projects

After the Gypsy Wife event which seemed to go on and on, I wanted to start a new project that was quick. I have a few long term projects on the go and this is not really fueling my desire to see something finished :-)

Introducing my new quick project. I bought a bundle of Cotton and Steel recently, not so much as result of the C&S hype, but more because I really liked the combination of sandy colours and greens. There was some navy in the bundle which I thought would be quite good used as an accent of some sort. Film in the Fridge's Flying Farfalle quilt popped into my mind so I set about to trial it.

I like it so far! I will see how it goes, but I did wonder if the navy might make it a bit too sombre. I have a plan if that seems to be the case  :-)

I've also made a start on Judy's Dilly bag. I love the name, I have an aunt Judy who we always tease for being unable to go anywhere at all without several dilly bags.

Gypsy Wife {a finished top}

An extra day as part of the weekend sure does come in handy for sewing. I think we should have them permanently! My goal was to get Gypsy Wife finished and I can happily report I met my goal!

It's very satisfying having this one finished. I'm going to put it away for a while now and think about plans for quilting.
