I am seriously going to enjoy nap time. Unfortunately nap time is a little elusive at the moment... Mia fed for 5 hours straight this afternoon.
Such a cute grumpy face!
But yesterday she napped and I stitched with some good friends. I started a new project - some English Paper Piecing - easy to pick up and put down again. The project is Patchwork of the Crosses. I hadn't heard of this pattern until a few months ago when Sharon started the same
project. It looked interesting and I read up the background of the pattern.
The original quilt was made by Lucy Boston, an author, quilter and gardener who lived at Hemmingford Grey - a manor house in Cambridgeshire less than an hour away from where I grew up - doing so much American style patchwork I was totally sold on something so local for me. I started pinning to my EPP pinterest board and then picked my current favourite colour palette and lots of fabrics from my stash.
So the plan is initially 9 feature blocks and see how we go. Fabric is cut and block 1 is made.
