I have been side tracked somewhat, although circling round
- there has been a theme of sorts.
Some charity shop pre cuts, Insul R wadding and used some of stitched together selvedges as circles and sides : )
Just hand stitched as a quilting, nothing fancy.
As in, I don't an can't do fancy!
Here are the blocks cut for March and April at least,
beneath the pin cushion and apple pins.
(Apples are roundish after all and so is the teacup)
However, the over all colour theme for those backs there, is cream thru brown/red, and I am wavering on that colour choice now.
It's too similar to my first batch and cover.
I'm into Spring colours now, feeling optimistic there might be more colour in the garden and blue skies above,
so may well use those block backs for another idea later.
I'm making fund raising things for a stall in a community orchard on May Day, Morris Dancing and good clean fun - probably with the great British rain no doubt too : )
A friend asked me to do a stall and it was such a lovely idea, I accepted, so panic making things and thankfully I still have a few of my trees to try and sell too.
They too are round - see where I'm going with this post cant you - cough..cough
The other pin cushions I've made are for it too, though not round!
I also made myself a shopping bag out of Scrapstore sample fabrics and some charity shop stripey cotton though not a circle on it at all.
I also found myself a new pencil caddy at a car boot for next to nothing that I couldn't resist.
It is missing its dark green lid by all accounts but the decoration is what caught my eye, 4 different Victorian pedlars.
It was a jam or conserve pot in its day and one of a series, according to Google.
It's not worth anything, but its charming and the glaze is fractured slightly which gives it that homely, vintage look.
And it's round!
Right, now to get sorting some really colourful fabrics to sue as backs and circles for April - I need some fabric with daffodils and narcissus on, bluebells and other spring flowers - dam it.
I may have to buy more fabric and here's me supposedly a queen of recycling.
Although I did pick up some flowery clothing and vintage pillow cases at sundays car boot, with circles in mind - so hopefully I will have more to share at Aprils end.
Happy Spring folks or for those entering Winter elsewhere, stay warm and well!
I'm linking up with Kathy at below, who inspired this year long journey
where you will find some other folks forays into circling and who knew there were so many options when you furtle 'around' joyfully : )
