New Year's Day 2019

It's a new year!
I see it is just a little over two years since I last posted anything here, that's Instagram for you. I have decided that 2019 will see a return to the blog for me. I miss having a record of my thinking as I make.

I thought I would start the new year with a small 100 Days project. I put together a pile of jewel-bright fabrics and plan to make a 4.5" block a day for the next 100 days. The rules are very few. No unpicking. No deciding something is ugly and putting it in the bin. No fussing about colour placement. Any block goes; improv, fiddly, straight lines, or curves.

I've cut a pile of fabric for small borders as well so that busier days ahead are accounted for. I'm using an Alison Glass Sun Print for the borders - it has tiny birds and insects on it which you can see if you look carefully. It's a really nice neutral which I have used in a few projects now.

Day One:


  1. Welcome back to blogland. Love your chosen colour palette, look forward to seeing more of these blocks.

  2. I’m feeling the pull of blogging again, too! We’ll see how we do with it. :)

  3. you are so good with color, I just keep staring for long periods "can I do that"? Beautiful!
