Polka Dot Girls
I've been fighting a cold for the last few days, lots of napping going on for me. Hubby bought me a heated blanket for Christmas, it's been put to good use with all my naps. It's nice to get in bed with the sheets all warm and cozy. I did manage to squeeze in a few things between naps. I pieced the first block of the PDG's. I was struggling with my fabric choices, the fogging head and sniffles didn't help with deciding. Oh look....I forgot to applique the heart on the bottom block....see what happens when a cold takes over. I think using the Folklorique by Fig Tree was a good choice. I did some picking apart seams before finely deciding upon what you see in the picture. The colours seem to go better with the embroidery threads used in the pattern, sand, scarlet, terra cotta, butter scotch and indigo are part of the fabric line and seem to match the stitchiers. You'll be seeing lot of these girls this year as I have 7 more of these blocks to go. If you remember a few posts back when I showed the first stitchery done I had plans to use the Sea Side Rose fabrics, well I have a new plan for those fabrics. I won't give you any hints now, I'll wait until I'm closer to starting that project....Oh no my list for 2008 is already growing out of control. . Have you seen Linda's list? I was exhausted just reading it.
New Year's was a quite day relaxing, with a chick flick mixed in somewhere. We tried a few days ago to see the movie but the line up was so far out the door we decided to pick up a bottle of sherry and head home. So we finely got into see "PS I love You" yesterday, it's a really good chick flick, don't forget to bring lots of tissue girls.
