A small section of my work room,showing Works in Progress: "unfinished pieces"

Sad smile. The "Firestorm" will not be completed until "Hands on" is finished.

Then,there is a cushion cover,started in early January for a January birthday.I had forgotten how time consuming and uncomfortable, colonial and french knots are to work on in our humid summer weather!

Add to that, the Crazy quilted Rainbow garden blocks that are lurking underneath those two UFOs in the photo.....and you will realize that I'm not as obsessed with stitching as I used to be.

At least the weather is cooling down: Twenty-one degree C in the house today.....and grey and overcast outside.

Work in progress


I have been battling with this quilt for longer that I has a mind of it's own,I'm afraid.
Measuring 12 inches wide,by 24 inches long, it was to be for the Australia/New Zealand/Art quilts May challenge.
I DID have ideas of using some prime colours and building it into a combined Sun and Fire theme........
Note,I did say "did".

Somewhere along the way.........
I have used artist's canvas and hot glue to create the hands........
Toning organza has been layered over the orange and midnight blue cottons, and paper flower cut-outs layered in the quarter circle Orange at the top.
