I need to 'fess up
you see I've been part of a group of quilters who have been doing a round robin,
in fact, they are now into their second round!
(lets be clear here, I am not participating in round 2)
to one particular person, I owe a huge apology
for taking so long over the last round on her top
and lets not beat about the bush here, 6 whole months!
so you can understand why this was on my FAL for Q1 right?
yes, we are talking the Old Red Barn Ab Fab Free Bees round robin,
and with Q1 end fast approaching I needed, for my own sanity,
to get this one done!
this has had me stumped for a while, then intimidated by all the other amazing piecing that has gone before me, and then when inspiration struck, I was just so overwhelmed with the tardiness of my timekeeping! Shamed!
so I started off with an idea of sort of a forest, and a little improv piecing later ...
managed a whole panel ... I'd toyed with the idea of log cabins, but you know what,
I just couldn't manage them at the moment and decided to just keep it simple ...
hey presto, a few stylised trees later and my forest is complete!
Now, I've written my confession in the journal, and made my siggy block, and this not so little baby is now ready for posting on Tuesday morning :)
one last word on this, I am humbled at Lynz's patience in me completing her top, she did offer to accept it back without my adding anything, and frankly I think I'd have felt worse than I do for taking so long. And trust me, I feel sick to the core over this little escapade!
Thank you Lynz, valuable lessons have been learnt!
so I know declare that as a complete finish for one of my Q1 FAL projects
YES! What relief!
ps. Thank you all for your get well wishes, I am feeling a little better each day, and less deathlike, and clearly more able to function at a basic sewing level. very important. So thank you, I really appreciate your concerns and well wishes x
