Hello lovely lovelies♡ Welcome to my little place, this lovely Sunday afternoon♡ How has your week been?? Mine was crazy busy with not a lot of time for the quilting of my Hydrangea Cobblestones quilt. Sunday has rolled around again; and being thoroughly exhausted from this past week, I have spent today cutting pretty snippets of fabric, turning them into little EPP pentagons for a new quilt. Yes indeed, I fear I have started a new quilt. I didn't mean to, because I am quilting my Hydrangea Cobblestones, but my wrist is a little sore from all the hand quilting the previous week, so I thought I might start stitching a little gentle, English paper piecing, pretty. Just to mix my hand stitching up a bit.
I happened upon a pattern late last year which caught my eye. It is a pattern designed by Hugs 'n Kisses. The pattern is called Fairy Floss, but of course I will give my quilt a different moniker. =) I rarely buy patterns, but what grabbed my attention with this one was the design of the little EPP pieces dancing around in circles. They are like little jewels skipping around and around. It reminds me of a wedding ring quilt; a design which I have always loved. Also, it contained all the paper pieces so I threw caution to the wind and purchased it. I am not going to make my quilt exactly as the pattern; as I would like to put my own creative slant to the quilt. It has been a little while since I have scratched my itch to play with fabric scraps, and enjoy a little english paper piecing♡
Another quilt where I will dive into my fabrics and scraps, and snippety snip smidgens of fabric with ditsy, flowery patterns. I will throw in some of my Liberty scraps, too. How lovely♡ It is always a very good day when there is a hint of Liberty loveliness♡ I rather love the grey background on the quilt in the pattern, so I am using a Kona fabric in the shade of Slate. The camera doesn't really capture the true shade but it is a lovely grey with just a hint of mauve. 'Tis so pretty♡
A little stitching of flowery jewels was a lovely way to enjoy my Sunday afternoon. Gentle hand stitching, with cups of tea thrown in for good measure. Gotta love a lazy Sunday afternoon♡ I will continue stitching my little pretties later this evening. Hoping, when your Sunday comes a-knocking on your front door, it is a pleasant one sprinkled with a little joy and oodles of loveliness♡ Perhaps take a little time to smell the roses♡ I must say the roses here, smiling at me while I stitch, are beyond intoxicating♡
Until the next time...........
