A new thrifty one...
While our summer weather remains fickle (more rain than shine this week) I seem to spend more time in my little studio than out in my garden (seeing it is summer I would prefer it to be the other way around...)
I am feeling quite thrifty, wanting to use up the fabrics in my stash before buying new ones (I seem to have been at it for the past few years). But it is becoming increasingly difficult as my stash really has reached an all time low.
Yet I am determined to make a quilt out of this pile of fabric. In my favourite nine-patch design. And yes, you are forgiven for thinking it looks a lot like many of my other quilts (like the one on the studio daybed...)
But it can not be helped... I tend to use the colours and fabrics I like (and only them), so a lot of my stuff ends up looking the same. On the bright side, it is easy to move things around in my house, as they seem to go everywhere and with everything else...
While I have been whiling away the hours in my studio, this little treasure has patiently been waiting for her turn. And now her time has come, as we are about to face the elements (rain and wind) and go for a long deserved walk.
But before we go... I seem to have failed to mention the Mias Landliv-Facebook page, that was set up in my absence (not by me, though). I am totally touched by the response and by the care so many of you have shown.
