During my self emposed sewing exile last week, my sole 'activity' seemed to centre around the watching of the television. I watched lots including many episodes of Miss Marple - oohing and ahhing over the chocolate box village -y murderous glory. I also took time out to view some of my favourite film discoveries - these include,
Love with the proper stranger - Steve Mcqueen playing neither cowboy nor thug but as romantic lead in a kind of comedy (if you've never seen this, go seek it out).
It started in naples - Sopia Loren at her nonchalent comidienne best.
Killing bono - Unreasonably optimistic yet fairly talentless musician living in the shadow of Ireland's greatest rock band.
* please forgive my scarily weak descriptions.
With all the 'activity' of the above, it was only a matter of time before I yawned my way out of my tiredness and headed back to the Pfaff to stitch....
I used blues and a few greens from across all my fabric lines, everything was scraps including all the white fabric. I also quilted it exactly like the quilting in the book and also borrowed the idea of using a dark medium blue for the binding.
I think this fella is my favourite fabric television.
And like all good tv programs - I'm already dreaming up the sequel.
Stay tuned ;)
