There's been lots and lots of intensive computer work for my day job lately and, as much as I'd like to keep going with the String quilt (it needs a different name), my eyes and neck and shoulders just weren't up for sitting for a couple of hours in front of another machine, so I moved to one of the many little quilting bundles around the house and found several Minnie diamonds that have been made for a while and pressed them.
There are 12 in this batch, and lots of new colours, which has been fun. I'm certain that after a while they all look the same to you, but they are like kids, each unique in their own way.
Love this rustic little gingham; it's adding a new dimension to the whole thing.
I know that I keep threatening to put together larger combinations of diamonds but it's so much fun working on the little ones that I don't seem to get there.
I think I'll pick up a needle and thread and see where it takes me. Either that or go for a quick nap - I'm pooped!....M
p.s. A while back I had a question from a no-reply blogger and since I couldn't get in touch with them I thought I'd answer it here. She wanted to know why my stitches don't show through on the front of my work. I suspect that it's because they are hand stitched and not EPP.
