Plugging away!

I'm still here, even though it's almost been a month between posts. We just finished the school holidays, and it's birthday month in May, for our two kids. So I've been busy, making presents.

There's plenty of news to share, I just haven't had the time to commit to blogging this month. I look forward to resuming in May, I hope! I've got a little more to finish on my daughter's quilt in the meantime...

This part is taking longer than the actual piecing of the wolf, because I've got no pattern to work from. I'm making it up as I go, by laying it out. Then I had to decide what colours to introduce. Orange had to go in, of course, because it features heavily in the "Twilight" realm. The time between day and night!

I've actually finished the lower section of the quilt now, and just have four more strip panels, to go up top! It sounds doable, only there's another public holiday, next week, which means she'll be home, and I can't work on it. In effect, I've only got 4 more days to finish!

 A piece in the quilt puzzle

I designed these little squares, within squares, which I had to pull out of my head. No Youtube tutorials. The theme in the background is based on the Twilight Realm, too - so they're pixels. As the main character in the game, regularly gets sucked into a pixelated portal, to travel to different realms. I thought it would make a relevant background.

So, that's where all my spare time has been going. I hope to be back to blog more regularly, sometime in May.
