Yesterday I went on a course run by Gillian Travis for her Italian Houses. I have seen these at various shows and was intrigued how she got such detail. Now I know however, as can be seen from my photo below, there's not much detail on mine at the moment ...
In fact I can't quite believe that this was all I did in a whole day workshop ... I guess you get quicker with practice! The threads above were on sale and so I bought some lovely bright colours to do the all important free machine stitching which will transform it into something like ...
My mind is already whirring with the potential designs for different houses and buildings that I love - watch this space!
The other things I have been working all were all put down on my Finish Along 2015 Quarter 4 list. It's pretty long but I have already completed some and well on the way to ticking off some others rather soon!
An almost finished mini for the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap going on over on IG ...
With a label made on my vintage typewriter - which I love!!
Made a couple of extras but still have something else in my mind which will hopefully be created tomorrow and may just make it to the Finish it up Friday party.
Last but not least I have been working on hand pieced hexie project. I decided just to do one more round of hexagons to what has been on my shelf for nigh on 4 years. Then I think it will become a cushion - hopefully by the weekend!
All this goal setting and sharing progress is definitely working for me. I was just thinking last night about what I have achieved since starting my Straight Line Bow quilt back on 08 August. Having a photographic record is really rewarding and great look to back on when I feel that I'm not achieving much! x
Linking up to Let's Bee Social and WIP Wednesday today.
