Well, my secret is out. Cricket. That sport many of you refer to as akin to watching paint drying - an opinion I used to agree with but now, for many years.....
This represents excitement and the sunny days of summer:
So - why would a crafter be interested in cricket?
Well, it's well known that we are fascinated by patterns, particularly nice neat squares and lovely colours.
And art quilters look for interesting and unusual patterns everywhere.
(No, that is not me with a scorebook, stats cards and a radio. There's cricket, and then there's obsession....)
Why else do we like cricket? We love fabric, and we appreciate its bright colours and draping qualities:
And if it all gets a little slow for a while....
Well, we can always pull out the scrap bag and make brooches.
Five brooches, made at the MCG; many overs, plenty of interesting people watching, a mild sunburn and a lovely day. That's why I love the cricket.
