This week I finished this little coin purse. I purchased the kit and this has been my introduction to wool applique.
The pieces are very small and fiddly but once I got the hang of it I completed it quite fast.
I have worked on other projects ( including my secret quilt) but at this stage none of them are completed to show you nor I can blog until the recipient of the swap receives the blocks.
I started a new project on the 27th April called "Listen to My Heart".
I came up with this idea as a form of meditation to focus on the inner voice which is my heart.
Basically the way it works for me, is that each day (just before going to bed) I applique a heart and while stitching I reflect and sometimes write down some thoughts that come into my mind.
I'll keep on doing these until I feel it's time to stop but having a practical side to me, I'll make these blocks into a small quilt as soon as I have about 12 done.
Some new goodies that I got this week.....
Lynette Anderson's latest book and some of her fabrics.
3 other books and some bright fabrics...
And a variety of gorgeous charm packs from Kate Spain, Joanna Figueroa, 3 Sisters and Howard Marcus.
Not sure exactly what I'm going to do with them at the moment but I could not pass up a 25% discount.
