Jane Austen's Bonnet

So I've started...
This little black box
has been the ''home'' of a pile of little stitcheries
that I finished a couple of years ago.
I remember -
as soon as I saw the pattern for this quilt,
I fell in stitchy love
with it:)
Jane Austen's Bonnet,
an exquisite quilt designed by
Brenda Ryan.
It sort of got lost amongst other treasures
in my sewing room,
and when I opened the lid a few days ago,
I fell in stitchy love all over again:)

They were all there,
piled on top of each other,
just waiting...
...I'm not sure how could I have done that!
Just left them,
packed them up and
went away
and left them!!!
Have a feeling it might have been around the time
that I lost that stitchy feeling for a while :(
You know,
 when stuff happens,
and you just pack things up
and push them towards the back of the cupboard,
just for a while:)


Bit naughty, ay!!
now I'm on a mission
to complete this beautiful beautiful quilt.
So I sorted out the fabrics today...
...and I cut all the stitcheries into diamonds ...
...and I sewed the first block :)
Me and Jane -
best buddies again:)
See you later

So so pretty, Jenny. When seeing this, I think I will have to start again too ... some day.
The thing is, I don't really enjoy working with the thread, because the colors don't really come out the way I want them to show. Oh well.
Have a great weekend.
