If You're Going...




to fuse letters into words on quilts, you clearly have to make sure that you stick the letters on properly. I made this little thing this morning, Pretty In Pink. Though I have to say that when I looked at it closely, the R had fallen off, and it read as Petty in Pink...which is not quite the same thing.

I'm having great fun making these tiny quilts (Pretty is 12.5" by 15", Poppy Power is 12" by 13"). Yes, I know, I always did work small. But not usually with such frivolous subject matter!
I love pink, though, never used to, but started wearing it recently, the same with purple...strange how we change our ideas about things as we get older. I thought people grew OUT of pink, not INTO it!!
I'm using my Brother machine to piece these days. This is fine, you understand, it's a good wee machine. However, there's a fault in the foot control which makes the computerised bit of the machine convinced that there's a jam... Now that's not a problem in itself; there's a stop/start button on the machine, and I rather like using it. Only thing is, I seem to have developed a permanent twitch in my leg. Clearly my mind thinks that I should be pressing down with my leg with or without a foot control. I do get a good laugh at myself every time I do this, but it's showing no signs of going away. If that was my only bad sewing habit, I guess I'm not doing too badly! (I'm sure it's not, though...sigh...)

Are you sure that's a poppy? Looks like pansy power to me!

Mmm I have to agree with the idaho beauty = looks like a pansy to me too! But an excellent one. I also think petty in pink is quite a profound name - prefer it to pretty in pink somehow. Also, and I hate to say this but it did make me laugh at the time, that there is a shade of pink that was described in the Guardian's The Measure, as menopause pink! :)

It looks like a pansy now...it didn't when I started...that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!
