Would you like a piece of layer cake - or perhaps a macaroon? How about a cupcake, freshly 'baked' this morning?
I have had such fun playing with my basted hexies and stitched hexie flowers. Some of you will remember the journey of my Fresh Fields hand stitched English Paper Pieced quilt which I began in January 2014. The colour palette has been refined along the way and in March 2014 I explored the qualities of Botton Line thread, being unconvinced that it was what I was looking for. In May 2014 I was introduced to Gutermann Extra Fine* polyester thread and found it to be my perfect EPP thread.
Other quilting projects took the spotlight and my Fresh Fields makings have been neatly tucked away. This week I have brought them out again and am delighting in their colours - and their delicious appearance! Splashes of summer tones amongst our mild winter days are welcome too. This morning I made a 'cupcake' pincushion to add to my pleasure. I must say I love looking at these plates of goodies as they sit (now perched on top of my sewing machine in our lounge/dining room) enticing me to stay and stitch some more.....
