In-flight Swallow

needledown_idea_in-flight_swallow_ 1

Block 5 of the In-flight quilt by Tartan Kiwi, this one is the swallow. I love that apple green Kona solid – it almost makes my mouth water. I have been thinking about the coming blocks and think that when I get onto the ones where the feathers in the wings or tails are evident I will use similar shades so that there is an effect of movement. Please excuse the quick photo, this block is untrimmed and still attached to the paper, mainly as I made it quickly this morning before heading off to work!

Today I had a huge day at work, even though it is both Mothers’ Day and a Sunday. Our new IT system went live and I have been working on it for what feels like a lifetime. (I have worked on the design and development and operationalisation of it, not the actual coding!). So once again I have not done very much in the way of sewing this week.

Yesterday I went to Cottonfields and Hands here in Christchurch to buy magnetic snap closures for future pouch projects, plus some more of that Korean bag batting, some gygli and other interfacing. In Hands craft store I found two random fat quarters of Tula Pink in the few designs I like from the Elizabeth range and already I can feel a pouch coming on to use them!!
