  3. Great splashes of colour, Rachael! Where will they end up I wonder? Another amazing quilt no doubt. I think the excitement of putting colours together is what draws me to sewing and quilting. My cousin who is an artist commented that quilting is my art form as he knows I can't draw to save my life. I think he is right. I "draw" with coloured fabrics and get an enormous amount of pleasure from doing that. Great therapy too! Your post was a bright start to a very grey Northern Hemisphere Sunday morning. Thank you.

  6. You certainly can't feel blue when you have that much colour around you. (Pardon the pun) I wonder what you are up to now?

  7. Amen to that ... and you certainly have some bright hues there to cheer you up.
