Strips all pieced

I was aiming for a random look (organised would have been easier for me) so not quite sure why it took me 9 hours to piece the other seven strips today.  There are a few wallflower patches but I hope to tie them together with stitch, applique etc. (I did lay a second fabric beneath some of them) and, if all else fails, there are always colouring mediums! .  Apart from the Broderie Anglaise, what trims I had were either too fussy or coloured up too garishly.  Similary the plan to embellish patches of a particular fabric before piecing together didn't materialise due to their final positioning (they were too close together for my liking).  I can't wait to start stitching!



This week hasn't been without incident.  Amongst other things, I accidentally knocked the water pot over but didn't realise until the following morning that my soluble crayon tin was full of water!  Cleaning them up will be fun!


I'm really honoured to be listed in Sharonb's list of interesting blogs and thankyou for all your lovely and encouraging comments ladies ............
