my creative space - cool change
For the first time this week I can feel autumn in the air. I love autumn but I'm always sorry to see summer leaving. Its been so horribly hot and sticky recently though I'm enjoying the cooler nights especially.
My creative space is full of ideas but I can't seem to completely settle to anything. This parcel of barkcloth didn't help matters, but I couldn't resist these when I saw them. The grey and red will become cushions, the japanese dolls a skirt perhaps.
I did make jam again, my third batch this summer. The apricot jam was so delicious, I'm wishing I'd made more while they were around, this batch is plum.
It must be colder because I'm also thinking again about this quilt, and trying to work out how to make it with my limited skills! I'm thinking exact measurements might help take some of the guess work out. We'll see!
More creative space, and some fabulous quilt action at Kirsty's.
