As the second half of the year begins, I gather some solids to make a Riley Blake pixelated rose. It will be a slow long project and has been on my agenda for a while. I was just waiting for an opportune time to take it up. Mid-year seems to be just the time, given one has half the year to go by and continuous Monsoon rain to keep one at home 🙂

Sunday Stash

Looking forward to starting this and then take it to completion. Have no intention of adding to my pile of WIPs. With house interiors getting done in a big way, I may not be able to finish this by July end…but totally worth a try!

We do not get designer fabrics in India so teh solids are just locally sourced, but that never dampened my enthusiasm…raring to go !

Fabric source: Kausalya Pandit

Buying new fabric is always fun, especially when you have a project in mind. These were bought a while back from my local fabric shop. I had been there to replenish some of my original solid shades but they weren’t available. That’s the thing, you get a variety of colours, textures and shades… but you just don’t get what you bought last time!
But no trip to the fabric store should go waste, so bought a few other solids each a metre or thereabouts ha ha ha

Sunday Stash 22

Tagging this to Sunday Stash at Molli Sparkles.…but this time its at Blossom Heart Quilts.

Adding a few solids to the stash …these are about a metre each.

Sunday Stash 21

and a secret project underway. If its a success, will put it up here in a while 🙂

My ‘Sunday Stash’ posts work as markers for self, I get to see on my blog how much work has been completed(more like how many new WIPs started) between the last ‘Sunday Stash’ and this. Sometimes, its just a realization that I have sewn items or tried out new things but just forgot to post them here on the blog. These then become delayed posts and crop up here and there…
then life continues again amidst all the anarchy 🙂

This is one such post where the fabric was bought a while back but I couldn’t post it prior. Love the blue-magenta combination. In India magenta is called ‘rani colour’ or the colour of the Queen, and, rightly so…super rich and awesome.
