sew stitch snap SHARE

And so another Wednesday has come around and
this week is another link up with
Linda and Julie
sew stitch snap SHARE.

Not a whole lot going on in my little sewing room,
just something easy and straight out of a book!

From a Kaffe Fassett book, pattern named Golden Strips!!
Pretty self explanatory.
I'm not too convinced about the Grey Brocade fabric, I'll sew up a few
more strips and see how I feel about it then.

The time since my post last week has been spent taking stock of
a few things, being up before dawn to look
at the planet Venus which is beautifully clear just before dawn
in the Eastern sky

just a tiny pinprick on this photo, but followed by

a beautiful sunrise.

Trying to walk on a very marshy lawn to see what's flowering in
the garden beds - one of my favourites is this

and if my memory serves me right this is a primula - correct
me if I'm wrong.
And that's it in this brief, barely quilting, post.
Don't forget to visit with Linda and Julie - links above
at the top.
I'll be back in a few days after upping my game with
the amount
of quilting projects I'm posting these days!



  1. Yes that looks like the Primula in Philip Jacobs fabric.

  2. warming tones on the quilt and the primula's.

  3. Sunrise colours in your fabrics to match your photo. What time did you get up to see Venus? Thanks for linking to Sew, Stitch, Snap, Share.

  4. I like the grey and when a few more rows are added, I am sure it will all balance out perfectly. Still mighty cold here, by NZ standards anyway!!!

  5. I like that grey brocade in among all the KF's...
    Lovely photos...thanks for sharing hugs, Julierose

  6. I like the grey tossed in with the golden provides some balance. like the branches and shadows in the sunrise photo.

  7. I like the gray too. It provides a level of contrast so all the pretty orange and yellows don't blend together too much.

  8. Such beautiful, sunny fabrics! The simple piecing will allow them to truly shine.

  9. Lovely! I too like the grey brocade, it seems to add depth.

  10. I love how the soft green and orange weaves its way throughout. And yes, the grey and the marbles are a nice addition.

  11. Sometimes easy and straightforward feel really good.:) Love your fabrics!

  12. Very bright and sunny piecing. I like the grey, it's a subtle contrast to all the golden fabrics.

  13. Excellent fabric choices. As everyone's said, the grey and marbles contrast well with the rest. Thanks for the sky photos. What a treat!

  14. Lovely photos - from fabrics to flowers!

  15. Yes, I think you're right about your flower being a primula.
    The night sky with Venus how gorgeous!
    I'm interested to see what you decide on doing with your yellows and grey.
    I'll be back to see your decision.

  16. Nice post...I just ordered Kaffe's new book with Ireland..:)


Thanks for visiting my corner of blog land, hope you'll call by again soon. If you'd like to leave a comment for me I'll get right back to you.
