Anyway one of my goals for this month is to finish putting the top together for Gossip in the Garden.
It is a bit tricky to put together but Anni Downs has written very clear step-by-step instructions - this is most appreciated!! I think I need to swap the bottom Dresden block with the grey background for the one near the centre on the white spot background - oh well it's not all sewn in, some of it is just pinned.
I also made an error with the long stemmed flower, somehow my stem didn't come out long enough so I drew a red heart and appliqued it under the cup-pot.
Now, I still just have to find the border (I haven't had a real look yet).
I haven't quite finished with Antique Wedding Sampler yet. I did make the binding at our last G'nT Sisters retreat but I still haven't made a start on sewing it on. This is my other goal for July - to finish putting on the binding.
At our retreat I decided to make a block for each of the Sister's AWS's, to keep me 'in the loop'. We picked out the fabrics together for Lynne's block #9. I just need to add the small leaves.
Very different colours to mine but I love it! That fabric in the large leaves is an old Robyn Pandolph one. To see more blocks made by the Sisters visit here we had a very productive weekend.
To finish this post you'll never guess who we saw out today Sunday driving, would you believe Batman in his Batmobile?
If you look closely you can just see his pointy ears (on the rhs - he even knows how to drive in Australia!)
You just never know who you might see on a country road in Victoria :D
