I guess I was quite determined to put a big pause on the quilt and the home dec front, and dig deep into my stash for one of the craziest fabric I have been draping and wrapping over myself a la Bollywood actress and dancing around (oh, and I've been watching Bollywood, Cantonese and Korean movies on Netflix while sewing the baby quilt top etc!), and then put back in its plastic bag and then in the bin... :).... a few times since it joins the stash.
It's a mint and gold velvet burnout on silk (chiffon) purchased online from Gorgeous Fabrics more than a year ago, and I have a lil over 3 yards of it.
What can I say, I've been feeling rather adventurous....
I just posted a long winded blog entry on the project, so I will spare you that here. If you are still curious, and want to see more pics too, here's the link: http://farsland.blogspot.com/2013/07/gone-sparky-fiddly-and-girly-route.html Proceed with caution.... :)
