I deviated a wee bit again. basically I decided pretty early on that I wanted to do N is for Night, from the boys quilt, so nests were put to one side. Then I came to E, and the more I looked at the egg from the book, the more I didn't want to do it.
These are what eggs look like to me (these are from our chickens). Not what is in the book. Easter eggs are just made from chocolate as far as I am concerned, so it just didn't fit any egg I knew, despite being very pretty.
But I really wanted to do Eggs, for the obvious reason that it is my name. Then I remembered N is for Nest.
And it fit perfectly. I used satin stitch for the eggs, and split stitch for the nest.
I'm rather happy with it. What do you think?
I also started another quilt this week. This arrived on Thursday.
The Papillion Honey Bun I ordered, and I just couldn't wait to open it up and start making something.
I've been making log cabins.
They've been coming out beautifully square, one of the advantages of using precuts.
