Mimi was wondering if I was overwhelmed at having to put all the blocks together, well the answer to that question is that I’m just trying to ignore that the enormous task have to be done. But I have it on the back on my mind and tonight while the alarm clock was buzzing (I’m working this weekend) I have a wonderful idea about mounting the quilt. So as soon as I get some spare time (I’m working this weekend, did I tell you?) I can start sewing them.
To all of you that have written offering help and I have not answered back please be patient. Help is needed but I need to organize ressources.
Life is really interferring in dollmaking or craftmaking, I’m missing my dollmaking badly.
The only thing that I manage to do is some knitting, at lunch time, conmuting, before going to work. I can pick my knitting for fve minutes, knit a few rows and just drop it. I can’t do that with dollmaking or any other craft I need tons of stuff, supplies, fabrics and beads just to pick the simpler colour scheme, so in five minutes I only get to open all the boxes, and get an untidy room.
Alice Azul’s block inspired my search of knitted flowers, so far I have only been able to find a couple of patterns. Two flower patterns at On my mind, a rounded petal flower at Frogpond and some roses at Knitty (scroll the page until you arrive to the flowers). Most flowers are crocheted, I don’t have nothing against it, but I don’t know how to crochet and right now I just can’t handle learning a new craft.
