Turning the edges up

Okey Kokey - Chez Whippet Good has been AWOL for awhile - life has been interesting here for past two months to say the least - and not much sewing has been going on - BUT I will show you what has happened cos when you have to, you have to, even when you don't want to look at fabric, or think about someone's pattern or pick up a rotary cutter, or even look at the mess of your room.  
Some days it's been hard to get out of bed, hard to get in the car to go to work and hard to even open your mouth to say hello.  Turning the edges of the mouth up has been hard lately.  

These photos have reminded me of how much I do like my colours and fun prints and a simple block

Ausmod Bee September blocks for Jules of Procrasticraft

Ausmod Bee October Jenn of Penny Poppleton

An op-shop score to beat all others (well, that I've found) - Pyrex Aqua Snowflake

Some kiddos had birthdays!

 and saw Dr Who 3D!

A little request for a comfy back pillow in blues and I threw this together - it was fun except the end bits did my head in (follow a pattern - no way! this little black duck does things off the fly - and usually gets it wrong!) but it worked out in the end.....phew!    Loved using some Echino cockatiels and some velveteen AMH.

Some one in this house is going to be a Master Painter!

and finally, my entry for the exhibit at Full Circle - this is called Focus on Hope

 The blackened jungle of background  pieces depicted how I felt when I made it but that glimmer, that glimpse of hope ...

- the light is shining bigger and brighter now - this is good.

I have some of that "strawberry on pale blue" fabric... do you know where it's from? Glad to hear things are looking up for you, again. Stay happy. Lisa S.
