I had intended to do some machine sewing but ended up spending most of the evening snuggled in my chair hand sewing (maybe it was the Apple Sponge pudding that slowed me down!!).
I've been stitching away on this Rosalie Quinlan design lately, and made a little more progress —
It is so cute, and I love this Cottage Garden Thread I'm using :-)
|These are 1 1/2" blocks; a border for a mini I am making. Another lovely shade of blue.|
Cheryll is also hosting a Christmas In July swap.....the sign up for this (Australia and NZ only) is on the same post as the FNWF linky. I did a couple of swaps last year, and had a lot of fun doing them, so am joining in again (signup closes on May 7th so you have a few days to decide!)
And speaking Christmas, here is the block I made for this month's One Christmas Item a Month sewalong, kindly hosted by Narelle. It is for a little quilt out of the Quiltmania magazine - I have been hoarding this, wanting to make it, for a while; you can probably tell, as this fabric of Lynette Anderson's is a few years old now!
You will be thinking how organised I am posting so quickly after last night's sew in.... the truth of the matter is that I was hoping to carry on with my little HST and some sewing this morning but being Opening Morning of duck shooting season, I have a small dog clinging to me like custard.
|I'm not moving off my Gan-ma!!!|
So, my Saturday has started!!
Happy stitching everyone, have a fabulous weekend!
