spring has sprung
the grass is riz
I wonder where the birdies is?
Cherrys, Wisteria and Jasmine are competing to see who can outdo the other in fragrance and spectacle. Robinia and Maple leaves are peeking through their bark and the trees will be fully clothed within the week.
However, all is not right in the land of Empty Field...my mad little birds and I are not speaking. The birds were not playing nicely last weekend at our monthly Marg Sampson workshop. Maybe its Spring. The right fabric combinations for the birds of the centre applique block just wasn't happening and after spending more than an hour cutting multiple combinations for birdy bodies, I've decided a temporary separation is for the best, so I've tucked them in a cupboard until
they I come to their my senses.
Meanwhile, I have been finishing up.....
Hexagon Stars which will form the four corners of the nine-block mad little bird applique arrangement.
My circles are not perfect, but it's meant to be whimsical OK? The blocks will be 21" finished, the hexxies are 5/8", and no, I haven't counted how many meelions (said with Dr. Evil accent) of hexxy papers I've used.
Well, one teeny little bird crept in...
And these - the beginnings of an idea for the border. Yep, more hexagons.
Many more hexxy border mountains to do, so I intend to enjoy the balmy spring temps covering small hexagonal shaped papers with fabric before what I suspect will be a scorching summer.
As for the birdys? Ha ha ha! I laugh in the face of birdys.
