In my main work I was happily progressing through a pile of quilt forms, and at present am in the middle of a fairly large one. Then over a week ago my mother was rushed into hospital, and in order to have something in my hand whilst visiting I had to turn to a small piece. It was lucky that I had one design - for The green chair on the computer which was planned for a small format (the image is to the right, in the Also stitching space) which I could quickly print and iron onto cotton and start stitching. Phew!
But it seems to be taking an age to get my mother out of hospital, despite her recovery, and I am progressing through my small piece quickly. Desperation drove me to design something else suitable for the small format. Normally when this happens all creativity departs smartish, ... however for once luck was with me.
Over the last couple of days I have managed to come up with three designs - two of which (top and bottom) appeal to me enough to take further. The third needs to hang around for a bit to see if I still like it in future.
