While The Sun Shines Bright...
I decided to get a little photo of the Playmat top which I finished a couple of days back. I chose to fill in the corner squares with some of the blocks from my Sew Stitchy panel, and I rather like them. To add a little texture to the playmat/quilt I've also spent a little time embroidering some parts of those corner blocks, and its given them a rather nice feel, which some bits printed and others in thread. So next I need to decide on a backing fabric, get it basted up and quilted, although I must get the other bee blocks finished first.
And on that note, I've finished my first paper pieced star for the bee, the colours are actually better in real life, and I rather like this one, but it's off to Heather in the US in the next few days, so I had better not get too attached!
And there is still plenty of time to join in with the Book Challenge, full details here, and sign up to win here (once you've completed your Book Challenge project).
