Yes, I admit it ....I have been really slack lately with my blogging and catching up with everyone. I apologise and promise to catch up with everyone soon.
I have been so busy with school things recently that I have had little time for much else.
My eldest (8) had to do a presentation in front of his class yesterday (and a few Mums) on a famous Australian.
Being a bit of a cricket fan, he chose Brett Lee, one of the worlds fastest cricket bowlers. I was so nervous for him (knowing, at the age of 8, I could never have done such a thing!) but he was so calm and handled it beautifully. I was a very proud Mum indeed.
You may be thinking that these fabrics are not what I would normally choose being a lover of the soft shabby florals, but these are new Japanese fabrics for a new quilt I have in my head.
I came up with this idea a few weeks ago and have been searching for some Japanese fabrics in pinks, greens and black which, I discovered, is not an easy thing to do.
I was driving past Gail's Patchwork Emporium the other day and decided to pop in for 5 minutes and check out if she had any Japanese fabrics.....well I went to the right place - she had about 60 different prints to choose from and had exactly what I was after. I was one happy gal.
Now all I have to do is design the pattern and I'll be off.......
If you are wondering what it could be...this may give you a clue....
