Anita is having a quilt along. This festival of flying geese is the quilt we're making....
Pretty awesome, huh? A LOT of flying geese blocks. Tell you the truth, I'm not all that good at flying geese, not made in the 'proper' way at least. I can't get those perfect sharp points like Anita can. But my theory is practise makes perfect, and surely after I've made all of these I'll be getting points so sharp you'll poke your eyes out with them.
This is my first block. Just like Anita I'm using Hope Valley. It was fate I think, I saw the original photo of the quilt and thought 'that'd look lovely in hope valley', then I read the blog post and that's what Anita was thinking. Fate, see? So Hope Valley it is (and some Kona Bone as the solid). See what I mean about not being perfect? Now, don't be nice and tell me it looks perfect to you - that triangle centre left...where's the point? See now? Hmm. Must try harder.
Why don't you join in with me and make some geese? Head over to Anita's and you can get all the info. She's VERY thorough, I feel like I'm having some really excellent quilting lessons but for free. Everyone likes that kind of deal, don't they?
I'm having one of those weeks. So far I've dropped 2 glasses on the floor and smashed them into tiny pieces, spilled washing powder (except it was the liquid kind) all over some clean laundry, lost my credit card (although I had it when I left the post office 2 days ago, and I'm positive I had it when I got home), and now I've lost my favourite scissors. The ones I've got tattooed on my arm. If they were just any old scissors I'd not be bothered, I'd just go and use a different pair but these are my absolute favourites. They're very special. But they haven't left the house, so where the hell are they? I'm starting to get a little bit grumpy about it now.
I don't mind admitting it to you, I think a good cry might be in order *sigh*
