Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a brilliant day. We’ve had another super sunny day in my little corner of the northeast of England. The longest day of the year will soon be upon us. I can’t believe how time flies.
Today is tulip day. I love tulips especially these funky purple ones.
The backgrounds that I use in my appliqué quilts tends mostly to be a soft light beige. I always found white a little stark but after seeing how nice these tulips look on a white background I think I am changing my mind. The different purples on this white background looks so fresh. I think I will have to give white a go for my next appliqué project. I hope I’ve got something appropriate in my stash. Well done Christine for being brave enough to use a white background.
I have two more Sweetheart blocks to show you today. With the great progress I’m making on the Sweethearts Dozen Appliqué quilt I’m going to have to find something else to post about soon! Here’s the progress from last evening …..
It’s been a really good day in my quiet little world. I mooched about and worked at my own favourite slow and measured pace. I enjoyed every minute of what I did. When you take your time doing something you get the chance to take it all in and appreciate the results of your effort.
Before I sign off for today, I would like to thank everyone who sent me good wishes regarding my different anniversary last week. All your kind words helped me celebrate this positive occasion.
So for this evening, this very happy and ambitious longarm quilter will be doing some more stitchery work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly love doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
