I have been busy making stuff, and busy being lead down dead ends trying to revive the SLIKstitches blog. The making has been fun, trying to get to communicate with someone at blogger reminds me of the saying "the impossible I can do at once, miracles take a little longer!
Anyway, enough whinging - I've mostly been working on blocks for the texture quilt, just 4 more to go, then I need to work out how to arrange them. Here are some photos
Suffolk punches from A at Stitching Science (thank you A)
Not sure if this is smocking or pleating, but it seems to be called honeycomb smocking
This block is four squares of corduroy with the nap in four different directions
This is a very loose woven fabric given to me
This one is ripped fabrics with some extra threads pulled out. The strip is made by alternating back and front of the fabric
and finally a pleated one where I have stitched the pleats down so there is a twist
