Marthe Jocelyn's newest work Scribbling Women. I'll be posting my review on Friday and will show the quilt that I am working on that will complement this book. To date I have transferred a message from Marthe onto fabric and am in the process of sewing the centre panel for the quilt.
I'll be writing more about this project as I work on it. I don't have a final vision of what it will look like, as I am 'winging it' , though I am aiming at a wallhanging about 48 inches square. Bright colours rule the day, and I am trying hard to avoid the pink and blue sterotypes.
Gayle Bong. I have placed the ruler on the one unit to show that it needs to be trimmed to 3 1/2 inches square. Gayle does have a special ruler to do this, though my local store doesn't have it on hand. I'll try it this way and if I'm as thrilled with the results as I think I am going to be, then I'll definitely order one. The orangey-peach fabric shown behind the units is the one that I am planning to use for the 'Scribbling Women' centre panel.

Marie at Daisy's Book Journal has been joining me with a Needlework Tuesday post. She has included a very close up photo of her cross crochet project. Even though she promises that it's not hard, I'm not sure I believe yet. It does look great.
Rikki at Rikki's Teleidoscope has been working on her blue crocheted wrap. This week she is sharing a sewing project. Great fabric choice.
You are invited to join us with your needlework post. It's a regular Tuesday feature.
