Hello all! Just thought I’d squeeze in a little post before the weekend.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram (it took a while, but I’ve finally found my way over there) then you’d have seen this already:
This is the Red Letter Day quilt I started at Camille’s class last month. As it’s for one of my boys I decided on a blue/green/aqua colour scheme, and I added an extra row of stars to bring it up to twin size (the blocks are 22.5″ square).
I ummed and ahhhed about the back until I decided that I would use all my left over scraps to put together some improv-style blocks.
When I was through I remembered that I was planning to do a scrappy binding, but now had no scraps. D’oh. I might just go with the solid turquoise for binding now (same as the central, inverse star).
In other news, I’m hoping to get the pattern shop set up this weekend and finally put my first pattern up for sale. I’m a bit of a tech klutz so keep your fingers crossed I don’t short out the internet while I’m at it.
And finally, do you remember when I used to do French video clips on Fridays? Well, I’ve got an Aussie one for you. (If you’re Australian you’re probably at saturation point with this song, but I just have to plug the local talent.)
This band is from Brisbane (where I live!) and I’m fond of the video because 1. Creative use of cardboard and 2. Blue hair. (I also love that the lead singer and the two girls are siblings.)
Say Geronimo and have a wonderful weekend! (ETA: Video link here if it doesn’t work below.)
ETAA: They have made a new video for the song as they are about to launch themselves on the (unsuspecting) US. That might explain why folks outside Australia can’t see the first video. International video is below: 1. No cardboard. Boo. 2. Blue hair still there, yay!
Can someone outside Australia tell me if they can see this one? Ta.
