Weekending (The Belated Edition)

  • I had a pile of lovely inspiring magazines, that always make me want to pack up, buy an old home in the country, get a dog, and have lots of lovely recycled/upcycled furniture in my home
  • Some more blocks for the Pack Patch quilt along. The top block was laundry themed and the second one was our sewing room.  One of the questions was how we store our fabric,  some of mine is in colour order, some is by pattern eg: dots, text, florals and some is by designer.  Here are all six weeks blocks together 
  • Loving the patterns and colours on the leaves of my new plant (Can't remember it's name sorry)
  • New York Beauty - four blocks done and assembled together,  It was bothering me, how not all of the outer edges were aligned, but after throwing the question of whether I redo it, open to my swap group, the general consensus is that it is lovely, they don't have to align and to leave it.  So I will.  Now it is time to think about the next border for it.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and that the week is a good one for you.
