I couldn't wait for the sew-along to start cutting. (And I was far too lazy to go and get tracing paper so I just cut out the pattern direct)
If you look really closely at piece number 7 (top right) you might be able to see claw holes, courtesy of Merky. Thanks for helping, mate!
I went for a run - it was the archetypal autumn day: sunny, crisp and COLD. I stopped in Highbury Park to get a couple of photos of the gorgeous colours and thought that I would like these sorts of colours for my Sureau. Maybe a bit more brown though.
Autumn is definitely my favourite season for colour. There will have to be a trip to Barry's fabrics this weekend to search for the perfect fabric that matches the perfect colour in my head. Hope I'm not disappointed...
