Catching Up

I've mainly been doing household sewing recently, even though I say "I'm a creative textile artist, I don't do domestic alterations!".  I made these cushion using some of my wonderful indigo-dyed fabrics. I must stop anyone in a white shirt from leaning on them.
I have been keeping up with the JQ Challenge and have finished the first four, with a little purple in each.
For the next four months the focus colour is green and do I have disassembled this silk obi and will use some of the green areas as well as some other small pieces of green kimono silk I have.

The "Inchies" workshop was fun but I don't think I'll be making many inchies although I can see myself going to the previous stage and making more pieces like this:
Today is a beautiful Spring day so I'm going to make the most of it and put some new plants in the garden, agapanthus and allium.


  1. One would think you live in Japan with all the Japanese focus you put on your work! The cushions could be sold at 'Blue and White', and look good in any home!
    You have made four months' worth of elegant blocks, and the next set with that green obi will be equally stylish.
    Enjoy the garden, and when it starts raining again, as it will one day, get back to your Japanese quilting.

  2. wonderful challenge pieces and the green obi will be very interesting, can't wait to see them.

  3. Your JQs are beautiful and I too look forward to seeing the next four. Happy Stitching!
