I have made good progress on the plates and appliqued some of the plates onto their background fabric...and I must say they are looking great!
Now I'm not sure whether to go with the light rose centres or the dark green centres...the light rose is basted onto cardboard, but the dark green centre is just sitting there on top of the plate. Looking at them here, the light rose centre looks a bit pale and washed out looking and I'm thinking the dark green may be a bit heavy...perhaps I should look for another rose fabric..
On to another project...I am knitting Dh a pair of socks....isn't this yarn a great colour for guys!
I have two pair of hand knitted socks and I love them...one pair was given to me by dear quilting friend Gwen, I'm sure you would have seen her photo many times on my blog, and the other pair I learnt to knit last year....would you believe it, but I have forgotten how to knit them now!
So it will be back to lessons from a couple of my quilting/sock knitting friends when we meet next week..
Must go and do some work..
