continuing christmas whilst in a funk
I have been little Miss Moody today. A big grey cloud is surrounding me. It might (hmm - does) have something to do with those blooming Morris fabrics. Too much brown. I need some colour.
Still, not everyone has my impeccable and flawless taste in fabrics, do they, Mother? Some people like those less in your face colours of falling Autumn leaves, don't they, Mother? Some people weren't keen on the giddy cheerfulness of wonderland, were they, Mother? Some people wanted Morris Workshop, didn't they, Mother?
Well, Morris Workshop is what she chose, and Morris Workshop is what she's got. And whilst it's not to my taste, it will look just perfect in my parent's bedroom. And they'll love it. And that's all that matters.
In a panic I realised there was no way I was going to be able to quilt the pattern I'd wanted to make (too big), and if I wanted to get it sent out for quilting it would have to be done super fast. I scrapped the original plan and have gone for the ever faithful turning twenty. But a little bigger, so it'll still end up around 7.25 feet square. I'll drop it off with the quilter next week, and pick it up mid-December. Just in time for Christmas.
I cut out the fabrics, after starching and pressing them, sewed the blocks and the rows up, I just need to sew the things together now and then I can rid myself of the grey cloud. Maybe I should leave it for the day and do a spiderweb instead.
In fact, let's just look at one.
Oh, can you feel the grey cloud lifting?
*sigh* that's better.
