Today started early, with me enjoying the Daphne on this unusually bright morning.
THEN, just a few hours later, my plans for the day went out the window. My DD kindly snapped a picture of me at the table, writing design notes. As you can see from the chaos around me, I am in my element! (No, I have no idea what that pressure cooker is doing seated on a chair behind me! Oh dear.)
So I have decided to update my weekly WIP from my rainy garden to my crowded table.
As I was pondering what to do with my suddenly free day...it occurred to me that the next BOM is launched in 5 days!! Yes, less than a week! Those of you in my Yahoo Bom Groupvoted to see the design in full from the start - so no mystery (even though I do love a mystery). This also means I won't be able to tease you each month with snippets of what is to come.
Here I am filing my pattern away ( I have to start doing this or I will drown in a pattern tidal wave), with my polka dot coffee....and matching fabric in the background. Sighs..... three guesses allowed, what colour do you think the next BOM is?
I will just have to make do with showing you this: and let you work the rest out yourself.
Your guesses will be confirmed in 5 days!
The fun thing about raiding my red stash was finding a much loved WIP quilt top. As it's a little project, I might even consider basting it today. It's red stenciling on white whole cloth (bottom left in picture).
Yes, that rather large table in my kitchen is actually a boardroom table. A dining table will not do, it's simply not large enough for meals and quilting projects. Not in this quilter's house! Which reminds me, I might have to find some time to get some housework done today....at some point....
