To get things rolling, we could choose our favourite colour ... but that means decision making ... so I found a way to combine my first and second favourite colours.
Colourful Friday will be each fortnight and our next challenge is the colours of Valentine. If you'd like to read more or view more colours, hop over to Daisyquilts colourful post.
Where did this week go? I didn't forget One Flower Wednesday or UFO Thursday ... I've just been busy with visitors, visiting and everyday stuff ... progress pics next week.
One Xmas Item A Month ~ I spent a lovely morning yesterday visiting the blogs on my sidebar to see what everyone has been sewing. It's a lovely feeling to have something finished ready for next Christmas and hopefully I won't get to December and think of all those items I wanted to make but didn't get round to.
It's an even nicer feeling to have blogging friends sewing along together and to pop round for a visit and see what they've made. Thankyou for sharing.

First I joined two green hexies to each flower … then joined each flower into a vertical row … next I’ll stitch each row together … finishing by adding a row of green hexies around the outside.
I’d love to know any other ways of sewing them together. This top should be approx. 40 inches at the widest. Maybe some more stitches tonight.

I think there is a total of 14 blocks all in various stages ... some as above ... three yet to be cut into strips ... and now some are looking like the picture below. I still love the fabric and enjoy the technique ... just need to make the effort.

Then it was time to lay all my flowers out in the 'garden' to view the final layout. There may be some more juggling of colours and I will need to make more green hexies to add a final row all the way round.

Today (with power back on) I pulled out some 2 1/2" strips and made some 12 1/2" blocks for Corrie who is organising Quilts for Queensland.

My first UFO was a very quick one. I'd started this bag before Christmas as a gift but needed some ric rac to finish off. Flood waters made getting to town difficult but we've managed once and I've been able to finish it off. It's now wrapped and waiting to be delivered when it's possible.

The yellow flower will remain in the centre with alternate pink and purple flowers ... then I'll play the placement game with the rest once they're all finished.

Yesterday I went with the tan scrap box. The next step will involve embellishment so I can't wait ... but guess I will have to.
All of this rain has to be good for somethings ... just ask my roses. I don't think they've ever looked this healthy and have gone a little wild.

This is the 5th Brutus from Bronwyn at Red Brolly and he's my 7th completed stitchery ... I went a little out of order.
I've also found this cute tag and added some text. For those who'd like to join in making 1 Xmas item a month this year ... see earlier post or link on left side bar ... you might like to add this button.
