Not a good start!

Oh dear! Not a good start to blogging for me! Tut tut!

I had high hopes of yesterday, planned to achieve lots, but instead we took the children to see the latest Harry Potter film and the whole day just got away from me. Still, the film was good and family time is always a bonus, especially when we are all so busy.

I have managed to set a foot inside my sewing room this evening - just a small foot mind you, as it is such a mess in there! LOL!

So I thought that instead I would post my first 'proper' applique.

This is a block of the month program from Antique Angel. The blocks are a mixture of applique and pieced, and done in Japanese Daiwabo fabrics. The colours are so subtle and very unlike the ones I normally go for ( I do like brights, particularly pink!) And for my first attempt I was very pleased with this block. I have another all prepared and ready to go, so hopefully it wont be too long before I can post some progress on this one.

Thank you for the comments, it's lovely to know that there is someone out there listening to me.

Lovely, Teresa! Nice to see you blogging...even nicer to know you were able to spend some time in your sewing room! :)

Your applique is wonderful! Those are the colors I am use to. Now I am working with brights which are completely outside my box! I understand!
