After working on Saturday, then racing around getting baking done, and dinner prepared for Sunday, I decided to have a little play with all my scrappy sampler quilt blocks - using a much wider piece of batting as a design wall. Overall I am happy with how it is looking, there are a couple of blocks that may not get used, and I think I need to make a couple more blocks in lighter brighter shades, then the fun can start with piecing it together.
Sunday morning saw me driving down to Matangi for another sewing day. It is such a nice time of year for a drive in the country, seeing all the lambs, blossoms and new growth on the previously bare trees.
I had my Christmas place mats to finish binding, some felt Christmas decorations to embroider and my hand pieced cart wheel pillow. As usual, not a lot got achieved, however I did finish the binding, so that is another WIP completed for my Q3 Finish-Along Goalss.
No birthdays this time, but still the usual good food, drinks, books and projects to browse at and great company. Angus the cat made it very difficult for me to pack up and leave, after deciding my bag made a great sleeping mat.
There hasn't been a lot of sewing from me lately, as I have had a bit of work, but school finishes at the end of this coming week, so I am looking forward to two relaxing weeks at home, hopefully I can sew, get the garden ready for planting and work my way through my book pile.
Have a fabulous week.
