Colour

A very slow week here. I thought we'd had the final cold for the year, but it turns out there was one more which the girls have recovered from, but mine has turned into a nasty chest infection. Lucky the DVD of Project Runway Season 5 turned up in the mail.
Yesterday I sat and watched and finished the binding on this quilt which to me is like seeing a spring garden through a frosted window. I think if there was Project Runway for quilts Michael and Nina might say it looks like I vomited colour and fabric and failed to edit and maybe my taste was questionable. I would be one of those very self assured designers that refuses to listen to the experts and sticks to my guns because I love it and they just don't understand me as a designer.
I am wrapped up in it now because there is nothing that makes me happier when it is cold and rainy and I don't feel great than a big vomit of colour.


Corrie is having a pattern and fabric giveaway! Go over and have a look!

ha, I love your way with words. And I think the spring garden through a frosted window is spot on (and sounds v.poetic)
