It's Writers' Week here in Adelaide which is my favourite part of the Festival of the Arts now held annually in March. I always try to carve out some time to go and hear a huge range of writers speak about their work. It's always hot, but so so worth it. I have made most of 2 days so far, fitted around a bit of work and hope to get there for at least some of tomorrow too, since it's the last day.
Also this week really enjoyed a concert to kick off the Festival- Paul Kelly and Neil Finn- outside by the river- you know- good music, food, fireworks, wine, moonlight, stars and good company- can't believe we considered missing it..!
So there's not been a lot of sewing going on around here, but I did progress towards more organisation on the sewing front by buying and assembling some storage. Now- just to organise sewing stuff inside said storage...
I have managed to sew up this block for Kirsten who has March in the Simply Solids Bee.
We were asked to use our stash in any colours, the only stipulation being to make the background all from one fabric and the plus also from one fabric. It's a fun block to make. Badskirt Amy has put together a tutorial inspired by Setsuko Inawaga. I'm quite keen to try this block in some patterned fabric at some stage.
Hope to get back to some quilting in the next week.
