Pyramids,Papyrus and Pharoahs

A few highlights of Egypt ............

And now its back to work, and hopefully some sewing!


Thursday, 4 October 2012


Finally summoned up the courage to cut into the jelly roll that has been in my stash for a long time- Kate Spains "Good Fortune".

I got the pattern from  Missouri star quilt company video on You tube- I think it was the 3 dudes jelly roll quilt- very easy to do but my one concern is that when ever I cut on the cross I tend to get some stretching when I piece it together- is that normal and how does one overcome it?? I think I will edge this small quilt with squares cut from the same blocks , and possibly some sashing. 

Meanwhile, the other project that is almost complete but which I think I am going to expand a little is the EPP union jack from the Hex-a-go go book by Tacha Bruecher.

This is going to be a wall hanging I think- mind you I am going to have trouble finding a space for it!!
It has a way to go yet, with a border and backing . 
Sewing will be on hold shortly while I take a trip to Egypt to have a peek at the pyramids.
