A lovely welcome to all you lovely lovelies♥ There is sunshine in my soul today. Despite all the dreadful happenings that are playing out all over the world, here in my little sunshiny, autumnal corner of the world there is bright, happy, flowery, fabric kinda sunshine, causing my soul to sing. Why?? Because my postbox has delivered a parcel of happiness in the form of more luscious Liberty fabrics.
Are they not just the prettiest fabrics overspilling with sunshine?? I ordered fourteen 25cm x137cm strips to add to the mix which I already have. Of course, I should've, would've, could've ordered many, many more delectable strips but my good husband wanted to eat this last little while. Me, not so much. Honestly, my good husband and my good self have been munching on cup cakes and birthday cake and all manner of celebratory food for the last couple of weeks that one would think perhaps he and me would be just fine surviving a day or two....or three, without morsels of food. I mean really, if camels can store up food for a little while, why oh why can't he and me. I know for a fact there are reasonable deposits of fat stored within my body to tide me over for quite a bit (the mirror reveals this little truth to me every time I look within the looking glass)......but he, perhaps not. 'Tis such a shame that we have to eat. I would much prefer to buy fabric.
So, for the last three weeks I have been happily stitching away, piecing snippets of puzzle-like Liberty fabric and embroidered pretties into hexies. All the pieced hexies are finished. I need only to incorporate triangles of fabric along the edges to make the sides, top and bottom straight. Then I am going to stitch a lovely embroidered piece around the quilt. I am thinking a row of hexagons dancing around the border would look rather spiffy.......but I will see what happens as I play.
Later this evening I will enjoy a little more Sweet Sunday stitching; a little sweet Liberty sunshine. If it is Mother's Day where you are....somehow, in some way, enjoy a little family love. I wonder, are your family visiting you?? There are parts in the world that are beginning to ease the restrictions that we have all been living under these last months. However you choose to spend this Sunday, may it be sprinkled with loveliness.....and a little sunshine♥
