I've always wanted to make a white patchwork quilt with little bit of colour but didn't know where to start so this idea went back to the sketch book.After a year and lots of doodles,scrambled ideas,sketches I came to a conclusion that if I don't start it now then I'll never do it. I've decided to use white fabric scraps from my dresses..so I guess this will be a sort of memory quilt.
Here is the first block...
top half of the block-crocheted circle with some french knots,kantha stitches and pleats,fly stitches..
bottom half of the block-pin tuck,piping,bullion loops, needle lace, a shisha mirror, blanket stitches,sheaf stitches,ribbed wheel,cross stitches,herringbone with running stitches over a seam...

We've had heavy rains this season which is very good..almost 20 cm rainfall was recorded this week in the place where I live..
I had to stay indoors most of the time so I spent my time planning some new projects, weaving and adding more stitches to the floral wreath project..
so far a quarter of the wreath is completed.
