|After glue basting them all|
The kids heard, watch my FABRIC !!!! so many times these last 6 weeks,
I used 50wt Aurifil thread for all the piecing, it's a very light grey and doesn't show up much. Things went much quicker once I read Lynne's top tips for speedy epp it came together much easier and was alot speedier.
Today, I got up at 7am and stitched the last bits together, unfortunately I had to have an emergency visit to the docs as I experienced really weird numbness and tingling in my face, nose, mouth, shoulders, arms and feet and thought it prudent to seek medical advice...it's really weird, you know when you've been to the dentist and your mouths coming back and feels numb, it's just like that, so tomorrow it's blood tests and I'm on anti inflammatories and massive doses of B6 and Magnesium, hopefully it's a magnesium deficiency and we still get to go on holiday, if not it's an emergency MRI/IRM scan to check it's not a problem with my brain/neck.
So he told me to calm down on the sewing, he didn't mention ironing though right... :o)
Now I need help, it's going to be a wall hanging, I originally thought a dark charcoally grey background (as per picture) and wanted to use the other colours as a border but now i'm not sure, do I go with light background....help
For the quilting I'd like to quilt all the flowers with Aurifil, as near to the colours as I can get and the white is easy, has anyone got a bobbin's worth of the orange or the purple that I could buy ?? I don't mind buying the large spools for the other colours but I don't really tend to use orange or purple enough, the other alternative is to look for the smaller 300m spools.
DH just said, buy them all...but he doesn't know I'm planning some more purchasing this week lolol... problem I have is he never says no and encourages more purchasing so he doesn't feel so guilty buying for the drag bike or motorbikes.
Stay tuned for my Bowls blog day (27th) and I'm taking part in the back to school giveaway for the Blog hop which will run until 5th September :) soon be back to school...
