Unfinished Creative Business...

good morning
i have some unfinished business
i'd like to share with you!

when i started
this was going to be
another cushion.

like this...
'well, what's wrong with that?'
i hear you say.

i was thinking...
why hide all that delicious fabric
behind someones back?
i wanted to look at it...
a lot!

so i added some more charm squares
to this one
all its Christmassy goodness
got me thinking again...

red felt hearts,
silver and gold thread,

golden seeds to count the days...

i finished two more hearts this morning,
nine more to go!

i wanted to express
the heart and soul of Christmas
for me.

this is my unfinished business...

i'm figuring it out as i go!

the heavens have opened,
dance between the raindrops and
with me!

  7. It's superb, Carol. Absolutely wonderful. And it has a real 'summer' flavour to it which is perfect for the Aussie Christmas. I really love it. x

  8. What a wonderful evolution of a concept! I love the words you've chosen too :)

  9. Carol,

    I just love the scripture you are using on your patchwork!!! It says it all! Can't wait to see it when you finish.

    A stack and whack is a project made with eight repeats of fabric all stacked up and pinned ever so precisley. Then cut into triangles and sewn together. A very fun project. I will try and remember to get the name of the book and who wrote it sent to you.

    Thank you for all your wonderful comments. They
    put a smile on my face and in my heart!

    Have a terrific day!

  10. It's so pretty, all the greens and reds and lovely pastel blue go so beautifully together. I am a very novice sewer, an expedition to Spotlight last week kitted me out with cutting mat, pizza-fabric-cutter, scissors and fabric for first project (cloth nappy & wipes pouch for pregnant friend). Now if only the baby would sleep so I actually have some time to do it I would be all sorted!

  11. Wow Carol, you've very clever. I love your colour combinations. Just gorgeous.


i am delighted that you care enough to comment..i love to read each one of them..thank you!
