Flimsy February Two

There are moments when art attains almost to the dignity of manual labor.  
Oscar Wilde

My second flimsy for Flimsy February,  using 36 blocks from the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler set and some gorgeous Tilda fabric bought on holidays in Glenbrook last year. 

Ta Da!!! 

Kipling is very approving of this flimsy frenzy creating padded places for napping cats.

With the release of the last block a few days ago, (on the hottest day locally on record) the weekly excitement of the Splendid Sampler came to end and is now calling to be made into... two lap size quilts.  Work is currently in progress - what was I thinking when I thought this sashing would be easy, with no seams to match up!!! And I have to do it again for the second! No time to mourn the end of such a fantastic sewing year.

A break from flimsy life was had at Craft Alive where my friends and I dyed  -  fabric. 
Plus did a little bit of shopping, and had massages - I could share a lovely photo of the two of them in ecstasy but what happens at the craft show stays at the craft show...

Back to the sewing machine.
Have a lovely week
