Well now I remember why I drifted away from Quilting & started Paper-crafting, Mixed Media and Art Journaling - because the projects just take so long !!
I seem to have been stitching these Scandi projects for a decade !!
I have the wall panel bordered up, layered & pinned ready for quilting - and now I have to do the same for the quilt topper.
Who knows how long the quilting will take - will I make it for THIS Christmas I wonder !
On my desk I have a few of the new Fresco paint colours and a small pot I have altered to store parking metre money in in my new car - a few Lavinia stamps and some Stickles for some bling !
Saturday was Hallowe'en and we have a few young children living in the close who like to dress up & come around collecting (with parents at a discreet distance !).
And got out my Pumpkin table runner too !
It was better than we had in August !
The maples in my garden were positively glowing in the sunshine !
The Golden Maple is extra special as it was a present from my Dad as a tiny tree and has moved house with me - it's getting rather too big for that now !
We even walked along the beach side in the sunshine on Sunday !
It certainly didn't seem like November !
Have a great crafty week !
