Well, she’s been sitting round for most of the year now … waiting.
And taunting … and waiting some more …
Waiting to be finished …
Waiting for me to take action …
Waiting for a decision …
The reason she’s been waiting is because I want to keep her for myself. But she’s too small for what I now want her for. I was originally going to make a couch throw out of her. But I fell in love! ❤ Now I want her for my bedroom.
*sigh* But what to do without any more charm squares???
You see, this gorgeous baby was the product of my “Ms Midge’s Aussie Tula Pink Charm Swap” charms! And I only got the one bundle this time round! *kicks myself*
Basically I want to bump her up from a single size to a generous queen size.
So I’ve been keeping half an eye out for some charm squares to use but we have been broke as hell this year eeeekkk! Anyhow, I just got a little tax back and decided to treat myself to some pretties! And what better pretties are there than some Tula???
(I thought and thought what I was going to do with my tax return this year and I have wrung just about all I can from that little baby! haha)
Enter : this gorgeous bundle of Slow and Steady that just landed on my doorstep!!!
So … now comes the “Bite the Bullet” part!
I need to bite the bullet and take her apart to add some of these beauties!! I might have a quick look for a Chipper Charm pack to add in if the prices arent too ludicrous. I’ve also stashed away a small bundle of True Colours which I will use too.
Anyhow, it’s school holidays at the moment so who knows how much time I’ll have to sew lol! Plus, I have another project on the boil that must be finished first!
Catch you all later! xx

I’ve had that problem with quilts meant for other people… Love the new charm pack colour palette, but I simply wouldn’t be able to force myself to pick it apart, it’s too pretty 🙂
Yeah, I know hey! I will see if I can get away with adding to each side and just unpicking a little so the seams sit nicely … I will see how the colours lay 🙂 I won’t be moving round too much tho, I just worry these won’t slip in round the edges. I don’t want to wreck her!
Could you turn her into a medallion quilt, with all that loveliness in the middle and some lovely borders, or is she too much the wrong shape…?
Oh, and we’ll be in Townsville on 20/21st and part of 26 October. Will you be around to catch up for a coffee or something?
I have considered a border! I will have a play when I have them cut …
Yes, I think I replied when you initially told me. At this stage I am off on the 20th. But my boss usually tweaks the roster up til a week or two out so we can firm up a time closer if thats ok?
At the very least if I end up working all 3 you guys could come and have lunch/coffee with me at work (the cafe ladies make fabulous coffees!)
For some reason, your replies don’t show up in my comments, so I came back to check, and a good job I did! It’ll be great to finally meet you, especially as we’ve finally given ourselves some proper time in Townsville for a change. I’ll text you nearer the time to see how your roster is looking. And as a fallback, we have the café to fall back on 🙂
