The challenge at ColourQ this week is to use the following colours:
I quite often this Fabulous stamp (Heidi Swapp) and the dressform stamp (Kanban) together, and I almost always paper-piece the dress. Fortunately I had some paper that contained three of the four colours required! A flower and some bling, and hey presto.
Talking of fabulous, what did you think of the Olympics Opening Ceremony? The stand-out moments for me were the industrial landscape (those chimneys rising from the ground!), the forging of the fifth Olympic ring and raising it to the skies, the Queen parachuting in (what a hoot!!), Mr Bean (genius), passing the torch to the next generation, and the lighting and raising of the cauldron. How on earth they managed to keep it all secret is a mystery. The other mystery to most of Britain is the tribute to the NHS (goodness knows what the rest of the world thought!). One thing about Britain, we can always be relied upon for ingenuity. And eccentricity.
