What I can show...
...is a little progress on the diamond quilt - it's a little over halfway together now (the centre - there will be some borders as well) and some ATCs I made this morning with the leftover background from yesterday's arch.
What I CAN'T show is a package of fabric I received for the Twisted Mystery 4 - we all send in a selection of fabric to the hostess, who mixes it up and sends it back out to someone else; then you have to make a quilt with what you receive. But I can't show it, as we are not supposed to know whose fabric we have or who has ours. I can say, though, that it's going to be a little challenging to work with because it's not a style of fabric I usually chose myself and its very nature dictates a certain type of quilt, which is also not really something I normally do. But I have some ideas, and hopefully more will come. I will try to remember to take photos of the piece in progress, so I can show it later on, when it's all been received and so forth. It's not due until (I think) November, but I'd ideally like to finish it before the end of my mother's visit in the autumn (she's leaving in early October) so that I don't have to post it internationally. We'll see how it goes. It's going to frustrate the heck out of me not to be able to show photos, though!
