A splash of green, such a vibrant green.
And it may look bad, with the baggie there, but it is parsley. A friend gave me a plant for the garden and a bouquet too. I didn’t need the fresh cut stuff so decided to chop it finely and freeze it. Perfect when you need a pinch for flavour in a soup or falafels. The strong green stained my chopping board! Growing up parsley was a staple in many dishes my mom and dad made. Perhaps because it is more cold tolerant and they grew up with it in Denmark. And although I like parsley in many things, I can’t stand the similar looking Cilantro. Even the smell of it makes me veer away in the grocery store. Anyways.
As mentioned in a previous post, I have decided to enter the American Quilting Nine patch Challenge at Quiltcon East in February 2017. Inspired by the Shot cotton fabric I found at Capital Iron in Sidney,
I set to work on a plan. Some of my quilts are very improve, but some like this one are planned and precise. I just hope my quilting skills bring out my plan as nice as I want it to. Lots of organizing.
My hubby saw my process and chuckled and said “wouldn’t it be funny if I mixed up all your labels”. The glare he received was a pretty clear answer! Lots of precise cutting and pinning and stitching and I am well on my way.
Probably won’t show much of the rest of the quilt as I want to keep it under wraps until submission.
In the meantime, I am planning block lotto for the October MQG meeting. Here is my colour inspiration for that block, or similar. We’ll see.
Have a happy Canadian thanksgiving. Look around you at the wonderful things in your world and smile and breathe for a moment.
